    How to replace a bike tube

     

    There’s nothing worse than a flat tire. Now you need to change the tire. Awesome.

    Don’t panic, you got this. 

    1. If your bike has brake pads, disconnect the brake from the wheel using the wrench.

    2. Now take the wheel off the bike. 

    3. Unscrew the valve cap and deflate the tube. Empty it right out.

    4. Pinch the tire and insert the tire lever. It should come off pretty easily. 

    5. Now hook the tire lever to flip the bead of the tire and flip it outside the rim.

    6. Now use the second tire lever in there and work around the tip, flipping the rest of the bead outside the rim. 

    7. Now pull out the inner tube. Now use the tire lever to flip the other side of the bead onto the outer rim. 

    8. Finally, remove the tire. 

    9. Pump some air into the new tube, just enough to give it the right shape. Don’t over inflate.

    10. Now, insert the valve stem into the hole of the rim, begin to gently place the tube back inside the tire. Gently. 

    11. Using your hands, work the bead back onto the rim, working from one side to the other.

    12. Once you’re sure the tube is not caught in the bead or on the rim, you can fully inflate the tire. Make sure you check just how much to inflate. 

    13. Now, put the tire back on the bike. Tighten everything up, and you’re good to go.

    See? Not so bad, right? We told you, you got this.
