Required items for team rides
The picture below represents the minimum amount of equipment you need to bring on every training ride (Tubes not pictured). Having a flat tire on the trail happens to everyone at some point. Not having the tools to change your flat can make for a very long day! Yes we ride as a group and It is easy to borrow other riders tools, but some day you will be out on the trail by yourself and these tools will be a necessity. If you already have these items great. Before August 9th please find the time to pick up these items pictured below. You can purchase other versions, but you need to make sure you have the ability to change out a flat tire. We will spend a little time at the beginning of practice on 9 August to make sure everyone has these items.
Please do not buy tire tubes. Backcountry.com has been generous to our team and has made available to us packs of 4 tubes for $1. So bring $1 to practice on the 9th and I will hand out tubes.
We have worked with Gutherie's Bicycle shop which is our our team shop sponsor to make available to you the items pictured below. Please remember that every team member is in the shop database. When ordering bicycle parts, accessories, or having service done on your bike you need to tell the Gutherie's representative that you are part of the SLC Conglomerate Bicycle Team and give them your student name. The shop will discount your purchase by 15%. If you have any issues Mr. Preston Jacobsen who is the shop manager will be able to assist you.
Our most recent team members that represent City Mountain Bikers you have been working with Wasatch Touring and they have been great to you with a 20% discount on accessories. The shop item numbers below correlate only to the Gutherie's Bicycle shop inventory.
Please patronize your respective sponsor bicycle shops and make sure you tell them thank you for their support!
Bontrager tire levers (consists of 2 levers)
Shop item #406886
Bontrager folding hex tool
Shop item #418560
Black Burn any valve mini-pump
Shop item #768686888540
(Note: the pump comes with mounts to attach to your bicycle frame. Personally I would recommend that you not mount the pump to your frame. Carrying the pump in your hydration pack or jersey pocket in my opinion is a better option. The pump pictured has a bonus feature in that it will automatically adapt to a Presta or Schrader valve.)
