What pressure should the tyres on your bike be?

The tyres are the only part of your bike that are in contact with the ground. It's important to minimise the risk of them losing grip, which is why it's important to make sure they are inflated to the right pressure. Check out our advice here:

Tightening the seat post

You need to tighten your seat post correctly to make sure it stays in place. A loose seat post can slip when you're out and about on your bike. Conversely, if it's too tight, you run the risk of crushing the seat post and damaging your bike.    The best way to tighten a seat post is to use a torque wrench. We recommend you tighten it to between 6 and 7Nm.   Take care not to exceed the maximum height indicated on the seat post.
