Trek 820 Review – Is This Bike Worth Buying?

The Trek 820 is almost certainly the least expensive “name brand” mountain bike you can buy. With an SRP of $439 (check the Trek site for the latest MSRP ) it hardly seems possible that this bike comes from the same manufacturer that produces some of the most respected – and expensive – mountain bikes on the market. It does, though, and that makes a difference. Trek is a large company that makes lots of bikes. That means they make lots of frames and they order lots of components from some of the biggest names in the industry. That gives them pricing leverage that they pass on to the customer. It would be almost impossible for a smaller or less well-connected company to produce a similar bike at the same price.

You’re also getting the expertise of some of the industry’s top bike designers and builders, and that shows in the design of the frame, the component selection, and the overall value.

The Trek 820 is a basic bike that steps away from many of the trends that define modern mountain bikes. The bike features 26” wheels, not the 27.5” or 29” versions that dominate the industry today. The brakes are old-school rim brakes. The drivetrain has 3 gears in front and 7 in back, and the front fork offers only 3” of travel. Clearly this is not a race ride or a big hit machine, but how does it stack up for its intended purpose: around-town riding and introductory trail rides?

Let’s take a look..

Quick Overview: What I Think of the Trek 820

For older riders (like me) who took up mountain biking back in the 90s, the Trek 820 has a “blast from the past” feel to it. Back in those days we all rode bikes with rim brakes, short-travel forks, 26” wheels, and steep angles. We had a ton of fun and rode some steep, rough trails. We didn’t feel limited by those bikes, because there wasn’t anything else. We didn’t know they were supposed to limit us, so they didn’t.

That doesn’t mean that the Trek 820 is an ideal ride for steep, rugged trails. If you can get a modern full suspension slack-angled trail slayer you’ll have a much better tool for that job. But if you don’t happen to have a few thousand dollars ready to pour into a bicycle, you can buy a Trek 820 and have a great around-town ride that can do more on the trail than a lot of riders realize. Those modern trail bikes are great, but don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t ride trails without one.

In short: if I could choose any bike I wanted, I wouldn’t choose a Trek 820. If I had to choose a bike that cost under $450, I probably would choose a Trek 820. It may not be the best bike you can get, but it’s probably the best you can get for $439.99

What You Get

Let’s look at the key components of the Trek 820.

The Trek 820 frame is made of steel. That means three things. It’s heavy, it’s strong, and it’s inexpensive. Because it’s a Trek, it also has a sleek design, impeccable welds, and high-quality finish and paint. The 820 will never be a light bike, but you will not break the frame and you won’t get tired of looking at it. 

The 820 carries a simple coil spring suspension fork from SR Suntour, a leading Japanese manufacturer of low to mid-end suspension. Travel is 75mm (3 inches), very short by today’s standards but enough to suck up the impact of rough roads, curb drops, and small root-and-rock trail chatter. It won’t hold up to big hits, but that’s not what it’s meant to do. It’s sturdy and durable and should deliver solid service for years.

The 820 comes with a Shimano 3×7 drivetrain: 3 gears in the front and 7 in back. The shifters and derailleurs are from the Shimano Tourney series. They are the cheapest drivetrain components Shimano makes, but they are still produced by one of the world’s two premier drivetrain manufacturers. That matters, because Shimano lets its technology trickle-down: as new upgrades are introduced in the premium levels, the old premium features move down to the lower level parts. 

The Tourney drivetrain won’t win you any bling points at the bike shop, but it will get the job done. You’ll have appropriate gears for level ground, moderate climbs, and all but the steepest steep climbs, and you’ll be able to shift smoothly and precisely. You may have a problem if you want to upgrade the drivetrain. Due to compatibility issues, you’d have to replace all the parts simultaneously, potentially an expensive proposition.

Because the Trek 820 is a beginner-oriented bike, I’ll point out that the durability and performance of drivetrain parts depend heavily on good tuning and the use of proper shifting technique. If you buy your bike – any bike – online, be sure that it’s set up by a qualified mechanic. Take the time to learn good shifting technique. Your equipment will perform better and last longer if you use and maintain it well! Many of the complaints you see in online bike reviews are not issues with the bike or its components, but with the way it was assembled and tuned.

The 820 carries Tektro alloy linear-pull rim brakes. These brakes work by clamping two rubber pads onto the rim of the wheel. This is an old-school braking technology that has been largely replaced by disc brakes on more expensive bikes. It still works, and it’s been used successfully for many years. Disc brakes will perform better in very wet or very muddy conditions, but rim brakes will stop you and control your speed very effectively.

You will have to be careful if you want to use another wheel. Mountain bike wheels (of the same size) are often interchangeable, but rim brakes must be used with a compatible rim. Many rims designed for use with disc brakes don’t have a flat surface designed to be gripped by rim brakes.

The 820 carries a basic, solid wheelset that will do its job, in keeping with the overall theme of the bike. The wheel size is 26”: that size is no longer popular but it was the mountain bike standard for decades, and provided solid service to a generation of riders. The Formula hubs are durable and effective. The rims and tires are from Bontrager. Trek has a long-standing relationship with Bontrager, which supplies many of the components for their lower-end bikes. That relationship brings two advantages. Bontrager makes solid, utilitarian parts, and because Trek orders a large number of parts from the company, they get competitive prices, which they pass on to the consumer.

The Bontrager LT3 tires are a compromise. They are knobby enough to give decent grip in moderate trail conditions but don’t have a high enough profile to create massive tire drag on cement. They won’t grip the trail like an aggressively knobby tire would and they won’t roll as smooth and fast on cement as narrow slicks would, but they will give you a solid platform on a wide variety of different surfaces.

Note that the maximum tire width is 2.0”, which may constrain your options if you want to step up to a wider more trail-capable tire down the line.

Other Components  

Trek fills out the 801’s component spec with what you’d expect: solid, reliable parts, primarily from Bontrager. Nothing is high-end, and you won’t see any featherweight titanium bits or elegant hyper-precise CNC machining, but everything there will do its job and hold up to abuse. 

The 820 frame comes with a full range of mounting points for luggage racks and other accessories. This feature is important on an around-town commuter bike: if you’re going to work or running down to the store you may need to carry a light to moderate load, and the racks make that a lot easier. They also make the 820 suitable for use as an entry-level bikepacking bike. The mounted kickstand, rarely included on pure mountain bikes, makes short-term parking easier.

Component Roundup

You won’t find high end parts on the 820. That’s expected: this is a bike designed to be the most affordable name-brand mountain bike on the market. What you will find is an intelligent selection of parts carefully selected to deliver durability and serviceability at the lowest profitable price.  

Let’s rate the 820 component mix on a 1 to 5 scale relative to other bikes in the sub-$700 range.

The components of a bicycle don’t work alone: everything has to fit together and work together to deliver the performance you need. Let’s look at how the total package performs.

Sizing 

The 820 comes in two versions. The 820WSD is five sizes, from XS to XL, and fits riders from 4’6” to 6’8”. The 820 also comes in a version designed for women, the 820WSD, which features a sharply dissenting top tube that provides very low standover height, a very appealing feature for smaller riders, especially less experienced smaller riders. The WSD comes in three sizes: XS, S, and L.

The smaller sizes of the 820 make this bike a great option for younger riders. If you want to buy a good quality bike for a growing child but you don’t want to overspend on a bike that will be outgrown in a year or two, the 820 in S or XS is a great option.

If you’re a beginning rider the whole concept of bike geometry may seem too complex to grasp. Even experienced riders may be confused over the details! To put it very simply, “slack” or “modern” geometry places the front wheel ahead of the handlebars, which adds stability and reduces the tendency to go over the bars on steep descents. This may also cause the front to wander on steep climbs.

“Steep” or “traditional” geometry places the front wheel under the handlebars, which gives stability on smooth roads and steep climbs. It also makes it easier to tip the bike forward on a steep descent, so you’ll need to drop the saddle down and keep your weight well back when the trail turns down.

The Trek 820 is very much in the “traditional” category, which is appropriate to its purpose. That will serve you well on road rides, but if you ride steeper trails you will need to adjust your body position to keep your weight low and back and the downhills. It’s absolutely possible – aggressive riders rode steep-angled bikes for many years – but it might take some effort.

Performance

The quickest way to sum up the Trek 820’s performance is that it rides above its price tag. This is a bike that carries a price tag not much above department store bikes, but has none of the looseness, squeaking, or rattling that so often go with inexpensive bikes. Part of that is because Trek sells through a network of credible dealers with trained mechanics that assemble and tune the bikes they sell. Many department stores or general sporting goods stores sell bikes that are assembled by unqualified staff members, and that often results in poor assembly and tuning, which in turn can create issues with the brakes, drivetrain, and most other parts of the bike.

The 820 is solid. It’s heavy for a hardtail, but that goes with the price: bikers say you can have two of cheap, light, and strong, but never all three. The 820 drops the lightness, but it’s cheap and sturdy, and that’s what you want in an inexpensive bike.

This bike is a hybrid designed to serve two purposes. As an around-town commuter, errand bike, and exercise/recreation tool it would be hard to ask for more. A pure road bike will be faster and more efficient, but the wider tires, wider bars, and more upright riding position of the 820 will feel more secure, stable, and comfortable for beginning riders. The shifting and gear combinations will serve for all but very steep hills, and the entry-level Shimano drivetrain shifts smoothly and easily. The multiple mounting points make it easy to set up a rack system to carry your daily loads. The low-end nature of the bike will not limit you to any appreciable degree in this type of riding, and if you have a chance to ride a more expensive bike you may wonder what makes it worth that price tag.

The limitations of the 820 may be more evident on the trail. You can certainly ride this bike on mountain bike trails, but you will feel the bumps and you will have to learn some basic skills from the start. That’s not a bad thing. Learning to stand up on the pedals, let your knees work as shock absorbers, and move your weight forward for climbs and back for descents is important. Those skills will help you even on a much more sophisticated bike. The limited suspension will force you to pick a line rather than plowing over obstacles and letting your suspension do the work. You won’t be doing jumps or drops, but you wouldn’t expect to on a bike like this.

The Bottom Line

If you haven’t ridden a bike before or if you rode as a child and are getting back on a bike for the first time in a while, the Trek 820 makes a perfect entry point. It’s affordable and you’ll get the kind of quality that will assure that your learning experience is good and your equipment doesn’t hold you back.

If you’ve ridden bikes before and you need a highly affordable bike for daily use and around town and occasional trail rides, the Trek 820 will be one of your top picks. If you’re looking for a stable, secure bike to ride around town, to work, and to school the Trek 820 will be a perfect fit.

If trail riding is your priority and you’re looking for a dedicated mountain bike, you might be better off saving a little more and looking for a bike designed for that purpose. If that’s not realistic from a financial perspective, you can go with the Trek 820 and ride trails with it. You’ll just need to understand the limitations of your equipment and work within them, leaning more on your skills than on your bike.

Trek approaches their low-end bikes with the same care that they put into designing their high-spec packages, and it shows. The Trek 820 is very inexpensive, but it’s intelligently designed and specced, solidly built, and effective. If you’re on a limited budget and you need a working bicycle, it’s a great choice.

Let’s compare the Trek 820 to other name-brand bikes in the sub-$700 range as an overall purchase. Remember that the 820 is in most cases going to be by far the cheapest option in that category. If you compared the 820 to department-store no-brand bikes in its price range and below you’d be looking at a 5 rating right down the line!

Different ratios on Trek 820

I have Trek 820 that I ride around town for fun, but sometimes the hills are too steep even for 1x1. Is it possible to just replace the first rear sprocket? I think my bike is from 2005. Sent from my Alcatel 6055U using Tapatalk  

trek 820 psi

probably. how many gears do you have? is if a freewheel or a cassette? if you're not sure, look it up. find your bikes on Bikepedia for us. I think this is it: 2006 Trek 820 - BikePedia if that's it, 28/34 is a LOW gear. unless you're climbing vertical walls, I don't know what to tell you. put some more air in your tires and ride more.

I can't find the bike on Bikepedia, but this it http://archive.trekbikes.com/us/en/2005/trek/820#/us/en/2005/trek/820/details The hills are very steep where I live, so I don't care if that speed is useless unless I'm going up a wall. I run my rear tires on low pressure because it's a hard tail, and if I were to use higher pressures, it would pop the tube on every curb. According to Trek's website it has a cassette. Sent from my Alcatel 6055U using Tapatalk  

Caleb.Gag said: ... if I were to use higher pressures, it would pop the tube on every curb. Click to expand...

Seconded. Pinch flats occur when your pressure is too low.  

Treks site says it has a cassette, but that list probably has the word "cassette" listed regardless of whether it's a freewheel or cassette. A 13t small cog usually indicates a freewheel and the 820 is the cheapest adult bike Trek makes, so it's likely a freewheel. I built dozens of 820s when I worked in a bike shop and I can't remember. I could be wrong; you'll have to ake a closer look. If that's the case, i don't think you're going to find any freewheels with much more range. Again, 28-34 is a LOW gear already. Is your saddle at the correct height? What's your tire pressure? Where do you live? Do you sit and spin all the time or do you stand and mash sometimes?

If you have a 28t front chainring you could easily change it to 22 or 24t which would be simpler than changing 1 rear sprocket.  

A different ring means new cranks, as the rings are most likely riveted onto the crankset. and probably a new BB. My vote is to look at the bike fit, especially saddle height, then tire pressure.  

How do I determine correct saddle height? I can try to explain it to you, but a quick search on the internet will give you dozens of great tutorial and videos. in general, most people ride with their saddles lower then they ought to. your leg should come almost to full extension at the lower part of your pedal stroke. anything lower than that, and you don't really take advantage of all the muscles in your legs to make your pedal efficiently. not pedaling efficiently will slow you down and make it harder to pedal up those long hills, like you said. yes, putting the saddle up that high means you don't touch the ground while seated. that's how a bicycle works, deal with it. when you want to get off the bike, get your butt off the saddle and step forward. it's that simple. Definitely below the recommended. If it were any higher, I'd pop a tube everytime that I go up a curb. this is nonsense. I explained this earlier and so did someone else. riding with your tires too low causes pinch flats when you hit an edge with your rim. look up "what cuases bicycle pinch flats" this is why BMX riders who jump down stairs, ride skateparks and vert ramps pump their tires to 110-120 psi. this is also part of the reason why mountain bikers use tubeless tires and rims, so they can get away with lower pressure for traction on loose surfaces and not worry about pinch-flatting a tube. also, if your are worried about popping itres when going up a curb, you're doing it all wrong. you should be more worried about denting your rim, because that's more expensive to fix. just plowing your bike into a curb is hard on your bike and your body. learn how to loft your rear tire up the curb or just don't do it. "Do you sit and spin all the time or do you stand and mash sometimes?" Not really sure what you are asking... Sorry for my stupidity. do you stay seated and drop down to your easiest gear and "spin" your legs really fast, or do you use a slightly harder gea, stand up and slowly "mash" a harder gear at a slower rhythm for at least part of the hill? there is a time and place for both techniques.

Click to expand...

if you want to try a lower gear, get a crankset with the same arm length and a smaller set of rings, like JB Weld suggested. you could get a 24 or even 22t small ring. that might give you enough gear, but it will likely be a bandaid fix for a different underlying problem. if you go that route, you might need a new bottom bracket to accommodate the new cranks. the length of the spindle will depend on the specific crankset and the width of the cups will depend on your frame.  

He's better off buying a new bike than to sink that kind of money into an obsolete pos no?  

I'm guessing you meant something in the 35-40 psi range when you mentioned low tire pressure? The reason people are confused is because they consider low tire pressure to be something in the twenty psi range. Pay attention to the second paragraph above if you change cranksets. You can purchase a crankset that matches your existing bottom bracket if you measure the spindle.  

cranksets at that level are pretty cheap. if the only problem he's having is not enough gear to spin up long hills, and he's not just riding a low-end bike like a 820 beyond it's limits (the 820 was never marketed as a mountain bike), that sounds like an OK investment. for the kind of riding he's doing, there are much better bikes. sounds like he is better off with a cheaper bike for just scooting around town.

The 820 is made from a very durable Trek Custom Steel frame that provides a solid frame for intense rides for a long time. The frame has a rugged design that gives the bike functionality and tangible performance.

The frame on this bike is coupled with an SR Suntour M-3030 preloaded fork that uses a coil spring to deliver responsiveness on virtually any trail. While the fork has 75mm of travel, enabling you to take on moderately challenging rides with ease.

Shifters 

The Trek 820 is outfitted with Shimano Tourney EF40 7-speed shifters that enable you to make on-the-fly adjustments to your speed. The shifters are backed by a front Shimano Tourney TY500 derailleur and a Shimano Tourney TY300 rear derailleur.

This provides enhanced performance capabilities so that you can take on most rides with confidence. This bike is also Bontrager Riser 25.4m/30mm rise handlebars that are comfortable, giving you the ability to maneuver the bike with ease and precision.

Brakes 

The Trek 820 comes with Tektro alloy linear-pull brakes as the standard braking configuration, and they deliver fast stopping power with precision. This, combined with the Bontrager LT3 26×2.00″ tires that come on the 820, makes it a very impressive beginner bike in terms of raw braking power and all-around performance. 

You’ll find a Bontrager SSR 2-bolt head 29.2, 12mm offset seat post on the Trek 820 that is well-designed and very comfortable, making it easy for you to ride at long intervals without becoming uncomfortable too easily.

Trek 820 Review: Best “Basic” Mountain Bike?

Trek is a respected “name brand” mountain bike company renowned for manufacturing some of the best and most expensive mountain bikes in the world.

However, in recent times, the company has been making moves in the budget-bike category, hoping to gain a larger market share via the average biker who isnʼt willing to break the bank to purchase an expensive mountain bike. 

The perfect case in point is the introduction of the Trek 820, a bike that’s much cheaper than other Trek models.

The Trek 820 is as basic as mountain bikes come. This model has been specifically designed for around-town riding and easy, light trails. 

Featuring 26-inch wheels, old-school rim brakes, a front fork that only provides 3 inches of travel, and a drivetrain that has seven gears in the back and three in the front, it is clear that the Trek 820 won’t fulfill the role of a big-hit machine, proper off-road bike, or racer. As a result, it generally doesn’t appeal to seasoned riders.

But, does it deliver on its promises? Well, letʼs find out in this Trek 820 mountain bike review. Have a look at what you can get from an alleged “off-road” bike that costs under $450!

Trek 820 Mountain Bike Review – Crucial Components 

As I mentioned earlier, the Trek 820 mountain bike only features old-school rim brakes. This means that the brakes on the Trek 820 donʼt perform as well as disc brakes in wet and muddy conditions. 

However, even though the brakes use old-school technology and aren’t disc brakes, the Trek 820 is still a good bike capable of controlling your speed and stopping well on a light singletrack trail.

To ensure that the pricing on the Trek 820 mountain bike stays as low as possible, the manufacturers have incorporated a steel frame, instead of an aluminum frame, onto the bike. With steel frames, you’re assured of fantastic frame durability. 

The only thing, though, is that, unlike an aluminum frame, it’s a bit heavy, and the bike weighs more, which can weigh you down on uphill climbs. 

As far as the steel-frame design goes, it is sleek with outstanding paintwork. The finish on the durable frame also benefits tremendously from impeccable welds.

Front suspension

The Trek 820 mountain bike boasts a common coil-spring front suspension fork from SR SUNTOUR that offers 3 inches of travel. Compared to other bikes, the travel is not long nor does it have fantastic suspension by any stretch of the imagination. 

Thankfully, it is still long enough to handle a decent level of shocks and bumps on rough roads and curb drops. In essence, it does offer a fairly comfortable ride on rough trails. 

The Trek 820 comes equipped with a Shimano Tourney drivetrain that has seven gears in the back and three in the front. The shifters—backed by a front Shimano Tourney derailleur (Shimano Tourney TY500) and a rear derailleur (Shimano Tourney TY300)—are also provided by the Japanese company. 

Only the cheapest Shimano drivetrain components have been used on the Trek 820 mountain bike. However, the affordable price doesnʼt mean that they donʼt operate well. 

There are more than enough gears to deal with level ground and moderate climbs. As for the steeper climbs, you’ll have to be somewhat of an expert to shift smoothly and precisely.

If you want the drivetrain components on the Trek 820 mountain bike to stand the test of time, you’ll have to tune them often and use a proper shifting technique at all times.

Mountain bike wheels

Itʼs rather disheartening that the Trek 820 mountain bike is only available in a  26” wheel size. Although 26” wheels were the norm in previous years, this wheel size is no longer the preferred size by mountain bike enthusiasts.

Fortunately, the wheels do come with durable and effective formula hubs. I also like the Wellgo nylon wheels as they help prevent rigid pedaling. 

The Bontrager tires and rims are also solid, to say the least. Unfortunately, as far as the performance of the Bontrager LT3 tires goes, they donʼt excel in any specific department. 

They only offer average grip in moderate, lighter trail conditions. The fact that they donʼt offer massive tire drag on cement also doesnʼt help one bit. 

Since they have an average performance on varying surfaces, without excelling in any specific segment, you could call them jack-of-all-trades, master of none tires. So, apart from being affordable, this bike isn’t the best at anything. 

Truth be told, this bike reminds me a lot of a hybrid bike. 

Overall review of the bike components

Though most of the components on the Trek 820 mountain bike are cheap, they are still extremely solid and reliable. In other words, the components are capable of doing their job and holding up to abuse.

Additionally, I also like the fact that the 820 steel frame facilitates rack mounts and has  a mounted kickstand to make your life easier on MTB trails. 

Overall, I would say that even though the 820 is not the best bike available, it is a great introduction to MTB life. 

Trek 820 Mountain Bike Review – Features of the Bike

Now, letʼs review some of the features of the bike.

The Trek 820 mountain bike is available in two different versions—for men and women. The menʼs version, available in five sizes, from XS to XL, can accommodate riders measuring 4’6” to 6’8”. 

Meanwhile, the womenʼs version has an extremely alluring feature for the ladies—a sharply dissenting top tube that ensures low standover height. This specific feature allows women to ride the bike smoothly with minimal fuss.

Bike geometry

Almost everything about the Trek 820 mountain bike is traditional, including its geometry. As a result, youʼll find that the front wheel of the Trek 820 lies completely under the handlebars. 

Though this positioning offers stability and a smooth-riding experience on paved roads and uphill climbs, the bike can be quite difficult to maneuver on steep downhills and rocky paths. During descents, you’ll have to adjust your mountain biking position several times for a smooth ride.

Performance

In a nutshell, it would be fair to say that the Trek 820 mountain bike doesn’t punch above its weight. There are department store bikes that cost almost as much as the 820; however, unlike the Trek 820, they arenʼt as reliable and solid on rough terrain. 

Plus, they usually have loose parts, and they squeak and rattle—things you wonʼt find with the Trek 820.

The Trek 820 delivers on its promise but offers nothing more. It serves its purpose as an errand bike, recreational bike, and around-town bike diligently. 

Although you could argue that a proper road bike has more speed and is more efficient, it wonʼt be as stable, secure, and comfortable as the Trek 820.

The shifting and gears on the bike offer enough for level ground and moderate climbs. However, I wouldnʼt recommend this street-model bike if you’re keen on riding steep hills.

If you want to check out the differences between the Trek 820 mountain bike and other more expensive Trek models, you’ll have to take the Trek 820 out for a test ride on tough trails. 

On the Trek 820, you will need to rely more on your mountain biking skills to negotiate past rocks, bumps, and other obstacles on extremely rough terrain. You’ll need your knees to work as shock absorbers, change your riding position according to the climbs and descents, and even have to stand up to pedal now and then. 

On the bright side, even though it may seem like hard work, you’ll be more skillful as a rider in the end.

Thankfully, Trek doesnʼt discriminate between their low-end bikes and high-spec packages. Hence, they have given as much care to the Trek 820 as they do to their expensive bikes. 

Of course, there’s a startling lack of premium features to ensure that the bike stays at an affordable price. But, as far as reliability and durability go, the solid frame of the Trek 820 will serve you just fine on a mountain track. 

This bike is a great bike for burgeoning mountain bikers as it is probably the best, most affordable mountain bike around. But unfortunately, the bike isn’t equally suited for both novice and experienced riders. 

Make no mistake, this bike is suitable for those looking for a daily ride to work and rides around town or on potholed city streets. However, if you’re a seasoned rider experienced in the sport of mountain biking and looking for off-road adventures, Iʼd say go for something else as the Trek 820 only qualifies as a basic entry-level bike. 

You’d be better off saving a little more and looking for an exclusive mountain bike (a nice XC bike) that is designed for a specific type of riding (for example, cross-country, trail-riding, and off-road adventures).

Novara Arriba Technical Data

Having the right tire pressure can make a huge difference in the quality of your ride. When your tires have just the right amount of air, you’ll feel more comfortable and have better grip and handling. But if pressure’s too low, you risk pinch flats, added rolling resistance, and quicker wear on your tires. If pressure’s too high, you risk a harsh, bumpy ride with less traction. We’re here to help you find your tire pressure sweet spot. Watch our video below to make pumping your tires a breeze.

How to pump up your bikes tires

Best selling pumps

Bontrager tlr flash charger floor pump, bontrager charger floor pump, bontrager dual charger floor pump, step-by-step instructions.

Before you start, this is your official warning that cleaning your chain is a dirty job. So take off that tux, pull on some gloves, and let’s get started! 1. Determine what your tire pressure should be. Every Bontrager tire has a recommended pressure range right on the sidewall of the tire. 2. Check to see if your pump is compatible with the type of valve on your tires. All tires have either Schrader or Presta valves, and most Bontrager pumps are compatible with both! If your pump isn’t, you can purchase an adapter at your local bike shop.

3. If your valves have dust caps, remove them. 4. If you’re using a Schrader valve, you’re ready to get pumping! 5. If you’re using a Presta valve, unscrew the end to open it. You can check that it’s loose enough by pressing the valve core inward. If you feel a burst of air, you’re good to go. 6. Secure your pump to the valve by pushing the pump head down on the valve as far as it can go. Then, lock the head by lifting the lever. 7. Wiggle the head. If you feel the valve moving inside, it’s not secure enough and needs to be pushed down even more. 8. Once the pump is securely attached, begin pumping. If you hear air hissing out as you pump, the head still isn’t secure enough. Repeat step 7, and try again! 9. Keep an eye on the pressure gage as you pump. Stop pumping when you’re within the range printed on the side of your tire. 10. Release the pump head by pressing the lever down and quickly pulling the head off the valve. If you’re using a Presta valve, don’t’ forget to close it. 11. Secure your pump to the valve by pushing the pump head down on the valve as far as it can go. Then, lock the head by lifting the lever. Now that you’re a tire pressure expert, remember to always check your tires before you ride. This can be as easy as giving them a gentle squeeze with your hand, or using a pressure gauge to ensure you’re having the best ride possible. You should also consider keeping a CO2 cartridge in your jersey pocket or on your bike for those times when your tires need a little extra air on the go.
