You will require the following tools in order to remove the wheel and change your bike’s inner tube; Screwdrivers/ bike tire lever, wrench, new inner tube and air pump.
Removing the Wheel
Remove the wheel from the bike. If your front tire inner tube is being replaced, simply loosen the bolts on either side of the bicycle tire. If it is the rear tire, you should remove the chain from the gear while rotating the pedals. Remember that you have to be careful while dealing with the tools and moving parts as you can get pinched.
Removing the Inner Tube
Take off the cap from your mountain bike inner tube
valve. You need to stick the lever between the wheel and tire and move around the wheel to get the edges out of the rim. Pull the inner tube and check the tire for anything that can puncture the new inner tube.
Insert the New Inner Tube
Take the correct size and type of new bike inner tube
and insert it by placing the valve inside the rim. Press the tire back into the rim once all of the tubes are fixed. Specialized
, and Continental
are the best brands that manufacture bicycle inner tubes.
Use an air pump to inflate the tire and put the cap back on the valve once you are done!
