James is doing a thing that we all learned at age 5 but let’s all watch with enthusiasm and gratitude like always.

One additional piece of advice if I May. The recommended pressure is written on the side of your tire. It's important because it varies wildly from type to type and (less wildly) from manufacturer to manufacturer.

Very nice James. But, I pump my tires by putting a plug into a cigarette socket and letting a machine do the job.

Oh James! You have the money for expensive bikes, but you doesnt pay for a perfect pump. Buy a "SKS Rennkompressor". The first and only pump that´s make for generations of bikers... 50€ /16 Bar! Made since 50 years, steel/wood, no plastic bullsh...

mate, schrader valves aren´t usually used on mountainbikes. i wish it was so because presta valves break to easily ( if you are not carefull) they are mainly used for dirt jumpers or bmx bikes because they are subjekt to more hard usage and usually less maintenance.....

If you're going to use a brush to clear out a valve I suggest you turn the wheel so the valve is at the top. Dust will then have gravity's help to fall out. I'd have thought James May would have known this..... And the same applies to pumping the tyre up - move the valve to the top so you don't have to bend down to attach the pump.

One tip I learnt aged 10...when parking and securing the bike, it's worth rotating the wheels so that the valves are hidden from view, for example at the top end of the forks or between the brakes...in case wandering ferals or chavs enjoy deflating your tyres while you're in the shop buying liquorice or chuggy.

After you blow out the dust with a compressor - use the compressor with appropriate adapter to pump up the tire.

"Universal ends" are actually really horrible. I'd love a pump with a dedicated presta or schrader end and end the always suboptimal seal/fitment. And please remove the nut on your presta valve. If your tyre goes half flat and moves a bit in your outer tyre your tear the tube around your valve when pumping it up again.
