This comment led me to the Wikipedia page for munchy boxes for some reason…

There have been reports of healthier options of munchy boxes. The healthy option composed of tortillas, cherry tomatoes, a salad, boiled eggs, sliced gammons, raw red onions, nachos, chicken mayo, a sprinkling of cheese and other healthy foods. Sushi is sometimes included in the healthier option.

Chinny reckon :rofl:

I think I am certainly being an idiot here, but I have my new pump and I cannot get it onto the valve (presta). The video I looked at the guy just whacked it straight on, but it doesn’t seem to fit like that. I hate bikes.

what pump did you get?

make sure you undo the value of the tube you want to pump up. if you bought a floor pump where you push the nozzle on, you will need to do something like this:

sometimes it helps to relieve a bit of air from the tube before putting the nozzle on.
