How to Change a Flat Front Bicycle Tire

How to Change a Flat Front Bicycle Tire

A step-by-step guide on how to properly and easily change a flat front tire on your bicycle or E-bike. Produced by Pedego Electric Bikes for public use in bicycle maintenance. Instructions:

To easily remove your Pedego’s front wheel and to replace a flat, punctured tire tube, you’ll need a 15 millimeter wrench and a plastic tire lever. You’ll also need a brand new tube to replace the old one with, as well as a pump for putting air in your new tube.

*Please note that inside each tire is a thick layer of green slime. Don’t be concerned if the slimy substance leaks out onto skin or clothes. But, to avoid leakage, make sure that the tire valve is near the top of the rim when handling the tire tubes.

To take the front wheel off of the bike, use your wrench to loosen the nut on each side, and pull the tabbed washers off as well.

Once the wheel has been removed, unscrew the green cap on the tire valve and set it aside safely

Wedge the tire lever down between the aluminum rim and the rubber tire, just enough so that the end of the lever can hook the inner edge of the rubber. Press down on the lever and the rubber will rise up and over the outside of the rim. Now slide the lever around the rest of the edge to separate the tire from the rim

Before pulling off the tire and its tube, gently pull the tire valve out of the rim.

You can then remove the tire and easily pull out out the punctured tube.

Now, insert the new tube into the groove of the tire

As you fit the tire and tube back onto the wheel, it is important to first gently insert the tire valve through the valve hole in the rim.

Once you’ve pulled the tire valve through, you can finish putting the tire back on the wheel by fitting the rubber tire into the rim.

Now that the wheel is put back together, attach the wheel to the front forks of the bike by aligning the tabbed washers into the small hole at the end of each fork. Then screw the nuts back into place and use your wrench to give each nut a final tightening.

As you pump air into your Pedego’s tire, use your hand to squeeze until it begins to feel firm. Then, use the pressure gauge to get as close to an exact measurement as you can. Continue filling if you need to, but pay attention to the maximum and minimum PSI for the tire, which is indicated on the tire wall.

Screw the valve cap on and you’re ready to ride…

    Hi anyone maybe able to tell me : when I change my inner tube (with presta valve) there is a thin rubber strip inside, I’m not sure if it should be placed between the rim and inner tube OR between the inner tube and the tire, thanks!

    Excellent camera angles and quick,simplified instructions !!!

    Pedego, your video is much better than other ones that take too long to explain key steps, presented with worthless camera angles.
