flat tire

Riding and the tire went flat, just get a new tube right? Other one didnt have enough psi im guessing? Tires are kinda old, but they are not bald.

That sucks..new tube would be ok I'm thinking..

Re: flat tire

Also patching is an option. Check out the wiki for more information on tire patching and changing.

Re: flat tire

Make sure there is nothing sticking through the tire before you put a new tube in.

Re: flat tire

don't use flat head screw drivers. you will pop your tube. get bike levers. patch

Re: flat tire

try to find the offending sharp thing stuck in your tire of burr on your rim. or it'll just go flat again.

Tip on patching.

When you apply the tube cement, after you smear it around the hole light it on fire and let it sizzle for a few seconds then slap the patch on. The heat combined with the now extra sticky gooey mess helps bond the patch better. Dont let it stay lit long enough for the tube to melt or burn tho.

Just a little tip I picked up while working at the bike shop. Really works great. And yeah make sure you get whatever it was that popped it out first.

Fuck tire irons use your hands like a man.
