Most flat tires need a simple blessing to bring them back to life and you don’t have to be a minister to do this. So if you aren’t familiar with repairing your flat tire, follows these simple instructions and your bicycles will be on the path to salvation once again.<br> + <br> + 1. Pump the tire up to see if still holds air, it may very well have been a slow leak or the valve was somehow depressed. If that is the case you can ride away. But, if you find the tire is flat the next day, then you have a slow leak and will need a patch. If it the tire deflates immediately, then you will need to either patch the hole(s) or replace the inner tube. Inner tubes can be purchased from the bike church or some other shops. Patch kits are available at the self-service center for a 50 cents donation.<br> + 1. Before the wheel can be removed from the bike, the brake quick release levers must be activated. This allows the tire to fit through the jaws of the brake. If the brakes do not have a quick release, then the cable may need to be un-clamped with a small adjustable wrench.<br> + 1. By either using the quick release or the adjustable wrench remove the wheel from the bicycle. Flipping the bicycle upside down may make this more manageable.<br> + 1. Remove the cap from the tire valve and deflate the tire as much as possible. This is done by pressing in the center of a Schrader valve with a small object or unscrewing the tip of a Presta valve and depressing it with your finger.<br> + 1. Pinch the tire away from the rim and using two tire levers pry one side of the tire loose from the rim. Be sure not to damage the inner tube.<br> + 1. Remove the inner tube from the tire/rim by starting with the valve stem. The nut on a Presta valve will need to be removed.<br> + 1. Inflate the inner tube and locate the leak. If the leak is small you may need to submerge the tube in water to find the hole.<br> + 1. Mark the location of the hole with a marker and deflate the tube. If the hole is very large (gaping) or it is on the valve, a new tube will be needed. If a new tube will be used skip to step 16.<br> + 1. Open the patch kit and choose a suitable size patch. Use the smallest one that is necessary.<br> + 1. Use the sandpaper to roughen an area larger than the patch around the tube.<br> + 1. Apply a thin layer of rubber cement to the roughened area. Make it slighty larger than the patch.<br> + 1. Let the rubber cement dry for five minutes, in the meantime check the tire and rim for any sharp objects that may have caused the hole and remove them.<br> + 1. Once the cement is dry remove the foil backing from the patch and press the patch onto tube over the hole.<br> + 1. Knead the patch onto the tube and make sure no air bubbles are present.<br> + 1. Remove the clear plastic from the top of the patch.<br> + 1. Insert the valve stem back through the rim (if Presta style, replace the rim nut) and then insert the rest of the tube into the tire, making sure that the tube isn’t twisted or bunched.<br> + 1. Use the two tire levers to pry the tire back into the rim.<br> + 1. Slowly inflate the tube and make sure the tire is seated evenly on the rim.<br> + 1. Reattach the wheel to the bike. The derailleur may need to be held out of the way when attaching a mutlispeed rear wheel. Make sure the wheel is centered within the bike.<br> + 1. Tighten the bolts or quick release levers properly. Close off (Presta only) and cap the valves.<br> + 1. Deactivate the brake release levers or tighten the clamp nut.<br> + 1. Voila! The tire is fixed.</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div>
