With the New Year here I decided to get my bike out of the garage and start using it a little bit more often as it has been in there since last summer and I am wanting to try and get myself fitter for 2013.
I needed a new bike pump as mine had just disappeared and my tires were a bit flat so went to my local bike shop and seen these valve caps and I just had to have them as I thought they were so cool and unusual and I had never seen anything like them before.
There was quite a few different designs to choose from so no matter your personality you should be able to find a pair to match it. I got myself the smiley face ones as they were very me and they were one of the ones that stood out most to me due to their bright colours and quirky design. As they were only £3.49 for a pack of two I am actually quite tempted to go back and buy some more in a different design as they are just so unusual.
The valves are made by a company called Trik Topz and as I have said I have never seen them on anyone else's bike before so you know if you buy these it is going to make your bike stand out from the crowd.
The valves are a nice size and fit on my bike perfectly. They are extremely easy to screw into place and once they are on they are pretty secure and I can't envisage them falling off without them being unscrewed. The only thing that I am a little worried about is that I can imagine someone seeing these and stealing them from my bike so I might just unscrew them every time I leave my bike in public as this only takes seconds.
I have only had these on my bike for a couple of days but so far they seem to be doing the job of keeping the air in my tires and I have been for a couple of bike rides now and haven't noticed my tires go down any and also they haven't needed tightening afterwards either.
These valves are all about making your bike look a bit more individual and for this they do a great job. The smiley face ones are a really bright yellow with the black face on them and can definitely be noticed even from a distance though you do need to be up close to the bike to see what they are actually supposed to be.
There isn't a lot more to say about these little valve covers as they are a pretty simple product but one that just looks really good and different and put a smile on my face when I see them. They do the same job as a plain plastic valve cover but just happen to look better. For only £3.49 I think that they were well worth the money for a pack of two covers and I definitely plan on getting some more in different designs.
