Today's Tip

Presta-Valve Basics - Before you can put air in a Presta valve, you must remove the plastic valve cap (if there is one) and unscrew the very tip of the valve. Look closely and you'll see that the valve's tip is knurled to make it easy to turn by hand. Unscrew it (counterclockwise) and then press the tip down until some air escapes. This is important because it frees the valve, which usually sticks after being sealed for a while. Until you free it, it can be difficult to impossible to put air into the valve.

Cycling Glossary - Word of the Day

rotor

1. The "disc" part of disc brakes, rotors are the thin, flat circular metal plates that attach to the hubs. They're what the brake calipers grip to slow and stop you when you squeeze the brake levers. 2. A component found on the front end of many BMX bikes and some freestyle mountain bikes that prevents the rear brake cable from tangling so that you can do easy barspins and tailwhips (spinning the bars or bike 360 degrees). The rotor (also called a "detangler") splits the brake cable into two segments, which are joined at a rotor installed above, or attached to, the bike’s head tube. As the bars rotate, the top segment spins while the bottom stays stationary and full braking power is available at every point of the rotation.
