Since I started biking earlier this year I've always checked my tyre pressures at home and inflated them with a little 12v pump. Today, for the first time, I inflated them at the petrol station.


After 26 years of using garage tyre inflators on my cars it took me a good five minutes of swearing and cursing as I tried to get the inflator onto the valve, poking it at funny angles between the discs, before I realised that it has two ends, one for cars and one for bikes :oops:


You may now line up to call me a b*llend :lol:

Still need to poke my front valve as the disc gets in the way. First time though I was the same as you - spent a good few mins trying to figure it out!
