What the papers say. . .When youre out on a long ride the last thing you want is to be caught without some basic tools for those impromptu repairs. Make sure you dont have your ride cut short by carrying a few essential tools. . .A chain tool is a must have should your chain break.

While lesser quality pedal spanners can round off in the busy workshop environment this one is made to last... the jaws have plastic inserts to prevent the possibility of scratching the crank, and we wholeheartedly approve of the double ended design that enables the tool to be positioned at a straight or 45 angle so that you can get a good purchase on the job a clever feature which we've not found elsewhere.
TF2 Plus (03034) is available in a handy sized 75ml bottle, ideal for making sure your chain, cables and other vital components are properly lubed and as its Teflon-based itll continue protecting your bikes components for miles to come.
Probably the best pedal spanner available.
9/10How did we ever manage before?Tyre Levers (06024) are a must for puncture repairs, and make it much easier to remove the tyre just take care not to pinch the tube between the lever and the rim.

Once your tube is repaired, itll need inflating. The Jetvalve MK2 CO2 Tyre Inflator (07008) is quicker than using a traditional pump and much easier on the arms too.TAKES THE ELBOW GREASE OUT OF TYRE INFLATION

GOOD GEAR GUIDE
A good multi tool is one essential no self-respecting rider should leave home without. Weldtites Deluxe Multi Tool (06321) features spoke keys, spanner heads, hexagon keys and screwdriver heads all contained in one compact, lightweight tool.
It's easy to see why it has been such a success over the years. The size is sufficiently compact for the emergency tool kit, yet the solid performance feels fine for the modest home workshop. Put simply, a classic.

THIS STUFF IS TOPS
LubricantsIts important to ensure your bikes components are well lubricated, especially before a long ride. Lightly spray the brake lever pivots, gear pivots and chain with TF2 to force out damp. The solid Teflon film it leaves behind will then keep on protecting your bike for many kilometres.LUBE OF THE YEAR AWARD-WINNERTF2 Aerosol Spray with Teflon (400ml) TF2 Aerosol Spray with Teflon (150ml) 03015 03021
Saddle upFor a comfortable and safe ride, its important that your bikes saddle is positioned correctly.
Maintenance made easyTF2 can be used on many of your bikes components . . . Adjust the height of the saddle so that your leg is slightly bent when the peddle is at its lowest point. Then move the saddle backwards and forwards until your knee is over the pedal, with the cranks horizontal.
Its important to keep your bike clean and well maintained doing so will prolong its life considerably. Weldtite produce a complete range of tools and products to ensure your bike runs better for longer.
ASK DOCTOR BIKE
How tight do my bikes nuts and bolts need to be fastened? Tight, but not too tight. Its important not to use too much force two fingers on the end of the Allen Key are enough. For the more advanced home mechanic, Cyclos Torque Wrench ensures that nuts are tightened in accordance with the manufacturers recommendation.
A worn chain should be replaced before it wrecks the rest of the parts. Use a Cyclo Chain Wear Indicator to check yours.
The bolt under the saddle that allows you to set the horizontal position also allows you to adjust the angle it should be nearly flat. Remember if you cannot stand comfortably astride the bike, it is too big for you.
Shorten a new chain to the correct length it should fit okay on the largest sprocket and chain ring.
Nearly all modern bikes are fitted with socket head screws not bolts so you will need a set of Cyclo Allen Keys to adjust the riding position and carry out other safety checks.
