As we mentioned earlier this week, spring is nearly upon us. Which means it’s time to get back in the saddle and on the trail.
Which is why Seth Alvo of Seth’s Bike Hacks put together a video of some top hacks for spring riding season. He’s got some good ones in the video, and we decided to highlight all 10 below. Happy trails!
1. Attach an Innertube to Frame for Emergencies
This is already a commonly used hack, except most use electrical tape or zip ties to attach it. Instead, use self-stick hook-and-loops that are reusable. And you can stow other items within the innertube like a multi-tool, CO-2 canister and an inflator. Then just attach the whole bunch to your frame under your seat.
2. Easy Option for Lack of Valve Core Wrench
Find yourself on-trail without a valve core wrench? Most lock-on grip collars can be used as an emergency substitute. Just remove the grip and pop one of the collars off. Then remove the pinch bolt and use the gap to wrench in your valve core.
