Winchester Wheelmen


Wheelmen Monthly Club Meeting

  • 22 Feb 2023
  • 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
  • Blue Ridge Bicycles, 2228 Papermill Road, Winchester, VA 22601

1)How to dismount tire and replace inner tube

2) Tubeless Tire - Update

Club member and Element Sports shop owner/operator, Josh Lewis, will make a presentation to attending members about the current state of tubeless tires, contrasting them to tube-containing tires for road and gravel bikes (and mountain bikes by extension).

After Josh's presentation, we will have a hands-on flat repair session.  Many club members are not prepared to fix their own flat tire on the road or trail.  Please bring your own front wheel and what supplies you have to practice dismounting the tire and replacing the innertube.  This will be a group/shared activity.  There will not be a leader per se.  How you would do it on the road or trail in a group is how to practice here; this is what is to be simulated.  The objective is to work through it and ask questions until YOU feel comfortable doing this yourself.  (Please bring a floor pump along with your hand pump, if desired.)

New Note:  If you need a place to sit for this meeting, please bring a camp chair or similar.  There is only very limited seating in the shop.  Also, part of the idea of the flat repair session is to simulate how to deal with it in real life.
