The City’s Best Tire Pump

by Joey deVilla on August 31, 2005

Here’s some useful information that isn’t “newsworthy” enough to get

into the paper, but perfect for a local blog like mine: the tire pump

at the Petro-Canada at the corner of Bloor and Keele Streets

is the best damned gas station tire pump I’ve encountered in the city!

In less than a literal handful of seconds, it brought a flabby bike

tire inflated at 20 PSI to the recommended 65.

If you decide to use this pump, keep an eye on the tire gauge. This

thing’s on overdrive, and the last thing you want to do is blow out

your inner tube.

Salamat para sa tulong mo sa bisikleta. Gustong gust ko ang pagtugtog mo ng akordion.

Ummmm, Joey….

How old is your car? I haven’t driven a car in the last 10 years that ever had a tube in the tire……

He’s refering to bicycle tires.

For those not familiar with Tagalog: “Thanks for your cycling tip. I’d like some of your accordion music.”

Sige [Okay]. I have to record a track for the BBC sometime this week, so I’ll post it on the blog as well.

🙂 60 PSI is a bit much for the average tire. You should reduce the pressure a bit.
