In the process of riding, the most encountered problem is the tire problem, and the tire for the bicycle is like the human legs, so the repair tire is a very important skill in the repair of the bicycle. Today I will teach you how to repair a bicycle tire quickly.
Flat file or sandpaper
Birdbath and water
Tire tape or rubber + glue
Let all the air out of the inner tube.
Take the inner tube: Stick the raised end of the tire rod into the outer tire, and start prying from the position roughly opposite the air nozzle (do not pry directly opposite the air nozzle, but slightly off). First pinch the tire, pull it to one side, and then insert the tire rod into the bottom of the tire, be careful not to insert the tire rod too deep, the tire rod can not jam the inner tube. A layer of cloth can be placed between the rim and the tire iron, so that the tire iron will not damage the rim.
Find a break: You can find a place with water, pump some air into the inner tube, and put it in the water to find a hole. Also, be safe when looking for water.
Use fillets to deal with the damaged location: the size of the filth around the hole should be larger than the tire patch, so that it can be stuck more firmly and not easy to leak. When filing to the same direction can not be filed back and forth, if the broken point is near the inner tube closing line, be careful to smooth the inner tube closing line.
Apply glue to mend the groove: Do not glue too much, spread evenly. Apply glue after a little dry, must wait for its surface to dry, looks gray, rather than water bright water bright, in order to attach the tire patch.
Install the inner tube: Let the inner tube air out and fill the inner tube from the air nozzle.
Ear: after air put inner ear slowly round, flat place there will be a "white" sound.
Hand touch, after full air, gently hold the inner tube with your hand and turn it around, there will be wind blowing out of the air leak, and your hand will feel cool.
Water test: Put the inner tube into the water after pumping enough air, and the air leakage will bubble. (Even the smallest leak can be detected)
File the damaged area in the same direction and not back and forth.
Check the leakage should be comprehensive, to avoid the phenomenon of leakage.
Do not apply too much glue when applying glue, spread evenly.
