Not much to say here really - simply stick the polyurethane tire liner strips between your tire and tube and then ride over glass and tacks to your heart's content. Well, not really, but it is amazing how well these little liners protect your tube from punctures.

This email just came into us from Erick Dickson, and it's definitely worth posting here to get the word out:
If you haven't registered yet for the 3rd Annual Bike to Work Day Winnipeg,
then please register now!
You can pick from relatively short weekday events to longer, more technical Cup races to 24 Hour epic rides. Most, if not all, races are put on by local volunteer coordinators who simply hope to break even after the bills are paid while still putting on quality events that are fun for all.
We love the way this bike rides. The steel frame and fork feel great on our potted roads (well, as good as any bike can feel anyway), the slightly relaxed geometry feels, well, slightly relaxed without sacrificing too much agility, and the mildly swept back flat bars are a perfect match to the rest of the set up.
Finally, we love the aesthetics. The curved top tube / seat stays are gorgeous, the cork grips are a really nice touch, and the colour choices are perfect. Just one left though, so act fast if it's the right size and you're in the market for a commuter.

Fortunately there's a very simple and inexpensive solution: Finish Line Fiber grip can be applied to carbon components to add that bit of friction that's required to prevent slipping without over-tightening, all without corroding or otherwise damaging your expensive carbon bits. It's $12 well spent and we've got plenty in stock.

Steve's excellent guide to riding across the country can be found here, or visit the shop to purchase his book.
If you're looking to experiene the joys of tandem riding with your partner or friend this is the machine that allows you to do it in casual style at a very reasonable price. For just $850 (a bargain basement price in the tandem world) this bike can be yours, less the Pooh Bear.

We found the video series while wasting some time online. They're not exactly high production value and many are very basic, but we're sure that for some of our customers they'll be quite helpful. We change many flat tires a day and forget that for some folks a simple tube change is a daunting new task (everyone's got to do it for the 1st time once, right?) so here's a video featuring a trail side flat tire repair.
