Fix A Flat Replacing A Bike Tube

Video three of my collaboration with Fitchburg Cycles is out now! This video covers that actual removal of a tire as well as replacing a tube and how to air it up using a pump. I go over using tire levers and some other tips on how to make sure you are correctly installing a replacement tube and the tire back onto your bike rim.

Check my previous posts on here as well as on YouTube for videos on gearing up for a ride with a tool kit as well as how to remove a wheel from a bike which covers detaching brakes and how to deal with a rear derailleur.

Fix-A-Flat Video Series Part 1

Leading up to this Spring it’s been very busy for me. The shop I work for invested in many marketing projects, preparing for a large Spring sale, doing purchasing to get our store fully stocked for the Spring/Summer rush, and staying busy with a full repair load.

Then COVID19 hit. Oddly enough our shop has remained busy with us offering pick up/drop off repairs and we’ve been selling bikes, but it means we had to cancel all in store events.

I’m no stranger to teaching fix-a-flat clinics and had a few on the calendar for the Spring. We wanted a way to still engage with our customers, so I took it upon myself to start a filming project, starting with a fix-a-flat series to be able to share with our customers and their friends!

All of the content included in our videos is what I go over in my clinics. Please feel free to like, share subscribe, and I’m looking for content suggestions as well!

Have a burning question about something related to cycling? Looking for some video content to cover a technical repair question? Please share!

You can DM me via Instagram: @spokehaven or shoot me an e-mail: info@spokehaven.com to share your ideas.

Thanks to everyone who has viewed the video thus far and provided some great feedback. It’s appreciated!

Go wash your hands, keep your distance, ride solo, ride a trainer, tip your bike shop employees well, buy a gift card from a shop, and stay safe!

Good health to you all!
