There's nothing worse than a flat tire. Luckily, replacing a bike tire tube is easier than you think.
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
Take the wheel off the bike.
Unscrew the valve cap and deflate the tube.
To empty out the air from the tube.
Pinch the tire and insert the tire lever.
It should come off pretty easily.
Hook the tire lever to flip the bead of the tire outside the rim.
Use the second tire lever in there and work around the tip.
Pull out the inner tube.
Put a bit of air in the tube to give it some shape - don't overinflate.
Insert the valve stem into the hole of the rim.
Begin to gently place the tube back inside the tire.
Using your hands, begin to work the bead back into the rim.
Move from one side to the other.
Ensure the tube isn't caught in the bead or the rim.
Inflate the tire to proper pressure and reattach your bike.
Secure and tighten the wheel onto the bike.
and you're good to go!
