* If it seems that your front tire may have lost some air, stop immediately to check it without turning. I did not heed this advice once, and almost paid dearly for it. I knew the tire was getting low, but decided to keep pedaling in order to get to a convenience store. When I started to turn into the parking lot, the entire bike slid on the partially deflated tire, while the bike continued to turn in a tight arc which I could not stop nor control. The bike finally stopped moving on its own. I almost fell, and almost landed in the street. I somehow jumped off the bike and landed on my feet....lucky.
