If you are anything like us, then you’ll have ridden countless miles out on the roads carrying nothing more than a trusty pump, repair kit and a couple of spare tubes with you, and yet barely even had the slightest of mechanical issues interrupting your ride? Sound familiar?

Well, perhaps not entirely. You see, once again, if you are like us, then a lot of your bike training will be done on a TT bike or a road bike, and with that, there can be a few specific problems that can crop up out there on the road, mid ride.

So today Fraser is going to run through some of these plus other common roadside mechanicals, in the hope it helps you avoid the same mistakes!

What is an essential on your training rides? Let us know!

top tip in winter if your hands get to cold. Stop at a garage and get some of those plastic gloves they have at the pumps, put those on under your gloves and your hands will be toasty warm

Using the new felt tt already, nice!

Very useful video – I had never even heard of valve extenders

Thank you Fraser. very useful. Although, what the hell is electric gear change?….i’m new to all this!

Seen plenty of guys on mega tt bikes pushing home in a race. I was hoping you were going to mention tub’s as I’ve never used them. And I guessed the above were and couldn’t fix with inner tubes. Can you? Not to mention glue melting with heavy braking, on carbon rim brakes!

Great video!!

Uh, Fraser – why did you screw on that valve extender upside down, bro?

I don’t know that I would have used the brand new bike to demonstrate roadside mechanicals haha 🙂

More times than I like to talk about, I’ve had my cleats come loose on my shoes – even break. This is really awkward as you either lose the connection with the pedal or worse can’t disconnect from the pedal. I now try to check the screws frequently to ensure that they are tight. When the cleats break I take them back to the dealer and always get a replacement set, but that’s still a hassle.
