I have ripped off the valve trying to put air in the tubes more often than I have got flats. Pisses me off. Does this happen with anyone here ? I have road bike with presta valve. Don't look like the pump is the problem. Any tips ?
And now for the rant. 5 in the morning, I am about to leave for work. Figure let me fill up air so I could avoid flat. Vhoooom. Ripped the valve off. The man in me says not a problem. Race to change the tube, and get going. Could have got a flat on my way. So I change the tube. Start filling up the air. Baaaaaam .. The tube blows up. Probably pinched or something Gave up on it, and just drove to work with my honey !
