How to pull the camera off a bicycle wheel

Remove the tire

The first step is to disassemble the wheel using edgers. It is not necessary to remove the tire completely, it is enough to remove it only from one side and remove the damaged tube from there. After that, you need to understand what exactly caused the puncture, it is possible that a small wire or glass remains sticking out somewhere in the tire, so carefully check it from the inside, otherwise you cannot avoid a repeated puncture. Be careful, it is possible to injure yourself if you get stuck with a sharp object.!

Having picked up the sidewall of the tire, we carry out the assembly from ourselves

If you hit a big pothole, then there is a high probability of a breakdown. Also, damage to the camera can be caused by improperly installed rim tape, sharp edges of the nipple hole, or being torn off by improper camera installation. It is better to determine the reason right away so that, as already mentioned above, do not step on the rake again.

It is enough to remove the tire on one side and remove the camera

Inspecting the tire for any sharp objects stuck in it, do not forget to shake out the sand and dirt that has gotten into it. We also check the installation of the rim tape, it may have moved out somewhere and the edges of the holes are visible, in this case it needs to be corrected.

How To Remove The Front Wheel of a Bicycle

Try to establish the cause of the puncture

Next, we slightly pump up the new camera (it’s easier to put it inside the tire) and install it in place of the old one, evenly laying it inside. At the same time, make sure that the nipple is installed evenly and clearly looks into the center of the wheel, and not somewhere to the side. Next, evenly put on the sidewall of the tire on the rim, starting from the nipple. There are tires that dress loosely enough, but they usually require the use of edgers. After that, we once again inspect the wheel, whether the camera has accidentally come out anywhere and pump it up with a pump to the required pressure.

When inflating, bend the pump foot. Be especially careful with the Presta type nipple, it can be torn off

This is about replacing the camera. But after all, you will not always carry several spare cameras with you, and there may be more than one puncture. Therefore, in addition to a spare camera, you should always have a repair kit with patches and glue. There was a puncture. I put a new camera, drove on, and during the parking I took and glued the quickly damaged one, suddenly another puncture will happen, and the spare wheel is already ready.

Removing a wheel from a bike

First you need to remove the wheel from the bike. Most likely you already know how, but if not, then we remind you how to do it. Most often, the wheels on modern bicycles are fixed with an eccentric. In order to remove such a wheel, you do not need any keys, you just need to bend it, loosen it, after which the wheel can be freely removed. If the wheel is secured with nuts, then, of course, you have to use the keys.

If the bike is equipped with V-brakes, then you need to disconnect them, and you do not need to loosen them. In the case of disc brakes, everything is quite simple, you do not need to disconnect anything. Remember to put the brake back on after installing the wheel! It is not necessary to tighten the eccentric strongly, it should close with sufficient, but not excessive force.

The procedure for gluing the camera is as follows:

  • we find damage (if the hole is very small and cannot be found right away, then you can pump up the camera and lower it into the water, the bubbles will immediately show you the place where the air comes out)
  • estimate the size of the damage and estimate the size of the patch required
  • we clean the damaged area from dirt, sand it with sandpaper
  • apply a thin layer of glue to the size of the patch
  • after that we wait a couple of minutes, detach the patch from the base to which it is attached and glue it with the same side
  • smooth and firmly press the patch for a while. The adhesive dries quickly, so the camera can be used almost immediately.

That’s basically all. Having done all this several times, you will make sure that there is nothing complicated here and the whole process takes a few minutes. If you have any questions and something is not clear, then write in the comments.

Necessary accessories

The one who always has in his backpack is not afraid of a puncture:

  • plastic assemblies
  • pump
  • spare camera
  • rem. kit, it is also a bicycle first aid kit
  • and of course some skill in replacing the camera.

How to change the camera on a bike and glue the punctured one

For many novice cyclists, this question often arises after everything has happened. Perhaps the most common and inevitable event for a cyclist is a puncture. Our roads are full of all kinds of rubbish, glass, wire, piece of iron, etc. So at the most inopportune moment the sound “pshshchshchshch” can be heard and you will have to make a forced stop. There is nothing terrible in this, it is a common thing. But it is much better if you are always ready for this and already know how to change the camera on a bicycle. In addition to the replacement itself, you also need to know how to glue the punctured one. Read more about this below.

Thank you for the competent information. Everything is clear and visual.

Removing a wheel from a bicycle

In order to replace one or both cameras, it is imperative to remove the wheel (s) from the bike. At the same time, the procedure for removing the front and rear bicycle wheels has its own characteristics.

  • bleed the air from the chamber (if it is still pumped up);
  • neutralize the front brake: if the rim brake. completely “unfasten”, if the disc. insert a spacer-spacer between the brake pads of the caliper to prevent their complete closure;
  • with a wrench, loosen the clamping nuts on the wheel axle one by one (if the wheel is eccentric, just unfasten the eccentric);
  • remove the wheel from the front fork dropouts (at the same time, the disc brake rotor. from the brake caliper pads, preventing them from being completely compressed).
  • bleed the air from the chamber (if it is still pumped up);
  • neutralize the rear brake: rim and disc. in the same way as on the front wheel, if the brakes are drum (single speed or planetary rear hub), then it is necessary to disconnect the bolt fastening of the brake lever to the right lower stays of the bicycle frame;
  • completely reset the bike chain from the rear driven sprocket or multi-star cassette (ratchets);
  • with a wrench, loosen the clamping nuts on the wheel axle one by one (if the wheel is eccentric, just unfasten the eccentric);
  • remove the wheel from the dropouts of the rear frame stays (at the same time, the disc brake rotor. from the brake caliper pads, preventing them from closing completely).

How to change the camera on a bike

Sometimes you wonder how many cyclists who ride their bike almost every day do not know at all how to change the camera on the bike, or they cannot do it on their own. Such technically illiterate cyclists, having heard the question “how to change the camera on a bicycle without removing the wheels”, will not even feel the trick in it!

In fact, the technique of such a replacement is quite simple, it does not require much knowledge as such. Here the question is more about the skills and abilities that are acquired in the course of real practice. But nevertheless, the process of replacing a bicycle camera has a number of its pitfalls and nuances.

Preparing to replace the camera on your bike

Preparation for replacing a bicycle tube should be divided into: A) in advance, and B) immediate.

A) As part of advance preparation, you should prepare the necessary spare parts, materials, tools and accessories (SPTA), which you should always have “with you” (for those who travel by bike away from home), or at least nearby in the reach ( usually in a house or apartment, in a garage, shed, etc.). This list of necessary items should include:

B) In the course of direct preparation for replacing the camera on a bicycle, you must:

  • choose a level and clean area without sand and dirt (in the field it can be a grassy, ​​rocky area, a side of the road with a hard surface). If repaired in sand and mud, it is almost guaranteed that they will be brought into the subspace of the bicycle tire, where they will cause its accelerated wiping and failure.
  • turn the bike upside down and place it on the platform in a stable position, with support on the handlebar and saddle;
  • get and prepare for work all the necessary spare parts, tools, accessories.

Installing a new tube with reverse bead tires

Immediately after removing the old bicycle camera, you can already install a new (spare) one. If there is no spare camera, you will have to wait until the repair of the old one is completed.

READ  Which Lubricant Is Better For A Bicycle Chain

How do I replace the camera on my bike? To install a new (spare) camera in the wheel, you must:

  • it is imperative to carry out an external examination and palpation with your fingers on the inner surface of the bicycle tire and wheel rim. The objects of search are: nails stuck in rubber tires, wire fragments, glass, ends of a torn wire cord and other sharp objects that have crawled inside, as well as sharp chips and cracks on the rim protruding from the rim of the head of the wheel spokes. If such objects are found, they must be removed, the wheel spokes must be tightened or replaced, along the rim with chips and a tire with a torn cord, make a decision to replace them.
  • put the first section of the chamber with the nipple / spool cup under the tire with your fingers, insert the nipple / spool cup into the corresponding hole in the rim, secure it with a lock nut (if its presence is provided by the design);
  • starting from the first section and to the sides, carefully tuck the entire cycle tube under the tire with your hands.
  • to reverse the bead of the bicycle tire by refueling its previously removed bead back inside the wheel rim. Why first fill it with your hands, and in the final section, when the tire bead tension increases greatly, use one or two assemblies. To do this, place the assembly under the free edge of the tire and hook it onto the edge of the rim flange. Then, using it as a lever, fill the remaining section of the bicycle tire bead inside the wheel rim.
  • to prevent or eliminate the allowed twists, kinks of the cycling tube, its pinching between the sides of the tire and the rim, it is recommended to wash the newly assembled tire with the filled camera thoroughly by hand in a circle.

When to change your bike tube?

The list of situations in which you need to replace the camera on a bicycle should include:

  • a puncture or rupture of a bicycle tube, which can occur for many reasons and almost anywhere: on an off-road, country road, in a city, even on a flat highway with a smooth hard surface;
  • the need to replace any components of a bicycle wheel: an old bicycle tube (repaired many times, obsolete, with a damaged nipple / spool valve), bicycle tires, wheel rims, wheel spokes;
  • complete disassembly of the bike for its setting for long-term or seasonal storage, and its subsequent assembly.

Fitting the wheel to the bike

To re-mount the wheel to the bike, you must:

  • make sure that the clamping nuts on the wheel axle are sufficiently loosened (if the eccentric is unbuttoned);
  • put a bicycle chain on the sprocket (cassette, ratchet) of the rear wheel before installing it in the dropouts;
  • insert the wheel into the mounting brackets: the front wheel. into the dropouts on the front fork legs, the rear wheel. into the dropouts of the rear bike frame stays. If the installed bicycle brakes are disc brakes, at the same time make sure that the brake rotor disc fits neatly between the open brake pads. If the brake pads are still compressed, first carry out the operation to unclench them.
  • alternately tighten the clamping nuts on the wheel axle (if the eccentric, then fasten it);
  • bring the brakes to the working position: rim. “fasten”, disc. adjust, drum. screw the brake lever to the right lower frame stays;
  • turn the bike over and put it on wheels;
  • take the pump, pump the wheels (chambers) with air to the standard pressure;
  • check the bike on the go.

Disassembling a bicycle tire

Disassembling a bicycle tire on a wheel with the subsequent removal of the bicycle tube is probably the most important operation. If it is carried out incorrectly or carelessly, damage to the bicycle tube, tires, and even the wheel rim may occur.

For this purpose, it is categorically not recommended to use sharp objects as edging, such as screwdrivers, blades of or kitchen knives, chisels, and the like. The best option is to use specifically specialized plastic or metal bicycle mountings.

How to remove a tire from a bike? To do this, it is necessary to disassemble it, during which it is necessary:

  • completely bleed the air from the cycle tube through the nipple / spool (if it is still partially inflated);
  • start the first assembly between the inner edge of the rim bead and the outer edge of the tire bead (on either side of the wheel, anywhere on the rim);
  • pick up the edge of the tire bead. In this case, you must act carefully so as not to pick up (not press, not puncture) the cycle tube itself, which is directly under the tire. This will take some experience and skill, and for beginners and inexperienced. luck.
  • using the first assembly as a lever, “turn out” the tire bead through the rim bead outward;
  • while continuing to hold the first mounting in the achieved position, in the same way start the second mounting 10-15 cm from the first, and also “turn” the adjacent section of the tire bead through the rim bead with it, while the tension of the tire bead should significantly weaken;
  • if this did not happen (when trying to pull out one of the inserted assemblies, the extracted section of the tire bead tends to “refuel” back inside), then the same operation will be required using a third assembly;
  • if the tension of the removed part of the tire bead is still weakened, and it no longer tends to spontaneously “refuel” inside the rim, one of the assemblies should be removed one by one, put it between the not removed part of the tire and the rim (at a distance of 10-15 cm from the already removed part ), and bring the next section of the tire bead out. Often, on soft bicycle tires, this can be done simply by hand, without the use of beads. The operation ends when one bead of the tire is completely removed from the wheel rim outward.

How to remove the camera from the bike? To extract it you need:

  • completely twist (by hand, pliers or a wrench) the nipple / spool cap and the lock nut of its glass (if its presence is provided for by the design);
  • run your fingers under the tire in the area where the nipple / spool is located, and remove the first section of the cycle tube together with the nipple / spool glass outward;
  • gently pull the entire removable bicycle tube out from under the tire.

Bicycle Tube Replacement Tools

The minimum set of tools for rebuilding wheels on the road:

Procedure for replacing the bike camera yourself

Changing the camera is carried out as follows:

  • Unscrewing the nuts that attach the wheel to the bike frame. If this fails, a special lubricant such as WD-40 should be used. A modern bike is equipped with a quick-release mechanism that makes it possible to dismantle a wheel in just a few minutes.
  • Removing the bicycle wheel. For unhindered pulling out of the front wheel, separate the halves of the vibration racks (rim brakes). To remove the rear wheel, the chain is removed from the sprocket with a preliminary shift to the lower bicycle gear.
  • Air outlet from the chamber by pressing the nipple valve. If the air outlet is not good enough, the camera will need to be squeezed.
  • Removing the tube from under the tire. For this purpose, the tire is pushed off with a blunt object. As the latter, a special “spatula” or an ordinary metal spoon can be used.
  • Pulling out the “nipple” and carefully removing the splint.
  • Close inspection of the rim. If there are stones or other sharp objects, they are removed. When using duct tape, check for bulging bicycle spokes. Such precautions are required to avoid a new puncture of the tire.
  • Actually replacing the camera. First, a little air should be pumped into the new chamber. Then it is mounted under the bus. Make sure that there is no pinching and that the installation is correct. It is important to pay attention to the appropriate markings on the bicycle tire. This will allow you to put it on correctly, taking into account the direction of the tread pattern. It should be put on the rim first one side and then the other. After that, the chamber is pumped up and inserted into the rim. The “nipple” of the camera is tucked into the hole located on the baud. If the progress of these works is insufficiently successful, a special spatula or spoon should be used.
  • All wheel parts are re-secured. If the tube is replaced on the front bicycle wheel, the brake is engaged and the mounting nuts are locked. Care must be taken to maintain approximately the same distance between the fork and wheel. From now on, full pumping of the cycle tube is possible. If the rear wheel breaks, the chain needs to be installed.

Dimensions (edit)

When choosing a bicycle camera, you need to remember that it must exactly match the dimensions of the wheel. The dimensions of bicycle wheels are slightly different:

  • Mountain models have 26 “and 27.5”.
  • For children and BMX. 20 “.
  • City and highway. 28 “
  • Niners have 29 “.

To replace a bicycle tube, pay attention to the markings on the tire. Its first 2 digits represent the diameter of the tire, and the next. its width, expressed in inches. Then the same characteristics are indicated in brackets in mm.

Correct selection of bike cameras

  • Tire dimensions.
  • Fitting type.

Bike Fitting Varieties

The purpose of this part is to pump air into the cycle chamber. According to the material, bicycle nipples are divided into 5 types:

Recommendations for replacing a bicycle tube

With a little trick, you can replace the camera more quickly with less effort.

  • Before installing a new bike tube, you need to pump it up slightly.
  • When using a spoon or a special spatula, use extreme caution to avoid damage to the bike tube.
  • When inflating the inner tube, take into account the pressure indicated on the tire. If you overdo it, the tire sometimes does not hold up.
  • If you notice damage to the cycle tube, you must immediately stop moving and start replacing. After all, when driving, it will tear even more. In addition, there is a risk of damage, in addition to the tire, also the rim.

Purpose of the bike camera

It keeps the air inside the wheel, giving it shape and strength. Elastic material is used for manufacturing. The bicycle chamber constructively includes a nipple for air injection. When going on a long bike ride, you should bring a spare camera and pump with you. In the absence of spare rubber, at least a camera repair kit should be taken.

How to remove the front wheel QiCYCLE

First, we will learn how to remove the front wheel, it is easier to work with it.

On the left inner side of the front fork, unscrew the screw securing the holder for the fender and the cable leading to the motor.

READ  How to remove the front wheel of a speed bike

Using a 19 key, unscrew the right fastening nut.

We remove part of the magnetic lock and the washer under it. So far, everything on this side.

On the left side, remove the plastic cap.

We unscrew the nut (just like the previous one). Removing the washer and dropout amplifier.

Now unscrew the screw securing the front brake cable.

The brake pads will come apart, and nothing will interfere with the removal of the wheel.

However, all this need not be done if you let the air out of the wheel in advance.

Now it is better to put the bike on its right side. The wheel can already be removed, but do not forget about the motor cable connector.

The wheel is free. Note that on the right side is the corresponding dropout amplifier. And he stands with a ledge outward. On the left side, it was the other way around.

Slow Riding Skills Part 1of 3 | The Friction Zone

Bleed the air from the chamber (if there is one).

Using a plastic spatula, pry the tire from the side opposite to the nipple.

QiCYCLE can be removed very easily even by hand.

Here’s just in case the marking of the QiCYCLE camera.

Wheel assembly always starts from the nipple side.

Since I removed the front wheel, I also checked the performance of my spare motor, which I bought very cheaply last year. The QiCYCLE motor turned out to be fully operational, new, hurray.

Once again about the correct assembly sequence. On the left side, the dropout amplifier is first put on the axle, then the washer, then the nut.

On the right is the dropout booster (before installing the wheel), then the washer, then the magnetic holder, then the nut.

Remember to connect the motor cable connector (aligning with the arrows on both sides) and secure the holder to the inside of the plug. And also attach the brake cable back.

Do-it-yourself tire removal is no big deal, and most riders do this repair exercise the first time around. Accuracy of execution, the availability of convenient tools. and changing the camera will not be difficult.

If you decide to change the camera for the first time on a bike, or it happens that after the change, the camera releases, it will be useful for you to read these tips.

Before unscrewing and removing the wheel, if it is not fully deflated, completely lower it by pressing the nipple. This will make it easier to remove it from the brakes.

We unscrew the wheel with two keys at the same time, if there is only one available, then we turn the nuts in turn one by one on each side.

We take a special plastic plate and insert it between the rim and the tire. We pull on the tire and hook the plate by the spoke.

Three of these plates are enough for me so that one side of the tire begins to easily climb out of the rim. When I used keys, screwdrivers, or any other materials at hand instead of plastic plates, I very often punched a new camera when installing.

Next, we take out the old camera, starting with the nipple, after unscrewing the cap and washer.

Now we carefully unpack the new camera without violating its integrity. I stopped gluing old cameras a long time ago. As a rule, it takes longer and more expensive.

Before shoving a new tube into the tire, you should swing it a little so that it takes shape and we have less chance of chewing it between the rim and the tire.

First of all, insert the nipple and secure it well with a washer. Next, we push the camera under the tire with our hands along the entire perimeter.

Now we feed the tire back into the rim, first with our hands, and at the end with the same plates that we took out. At this stage, you need to exercise the utmost care, as it is at this moment that you can damage the camera.

After the tire is in place, you need to lightly tap the wheel on the ground, turn it in a circle. Thus, the camera will take its place where it could get between the tire and the rim.

Install the wheel into the fork. Tighten the nuts alternately on both sides, while making sure that the distance between the fork and the wheel, closer to the frame, is approximately the same. If you are changing the camera on the rear wheel, be sure to put on the chain when installing.

Having installed the wheel, turn it by hand, if it spins a little more by inertia, then everything is in order, you can pump it up, If it stops almost immediately, then you need to unscrew it and slightly release the fixing nuts on the sleeve.

If I am not in a hurry and do everything in order, then it takes me no more than 15 minutes to replace the camera.

A bicycle is such a thing that sooner or later you will be faced with the need to repair the camera, or you just want to exchange worn-out tires for new ones. And our favorite electric cable, QiCYCLE, is no exception. Of course, such an operation on it is a little more complicated than on a regular bicycle, but if you have a small set of tools, you can do it yourself without going to the service.

In this article, I will describe the process of removing both wheels and replacing the camera.

Since the QiCYCLE is an electric bike, you need to start any action by disconnecting the battery. This golden rule must be followed in all situations, and sooner or later it will save you a lot of money on repairs.

How to remove a camera from a bicycle wheel

Not everyone punches their own wheels, and not everyone repairs a bicycle on their own. Nevertheless, understanding how you can remove a tire from a bike and put what you need for this and how to do it easily and without unnecessary problems is useful for most riders.

When we remove a bicycle tire?

  • The camera is broken. you need to remove the tire, then change the camera, and then assemble the wheel;
  • When replacing, in fact, bicycle tires. they tend to wear out, especially with aggressive or prolonged driving;
  • When servicing the wheel. when other elements, for example, the camera, can interfere.

Sequencing

So, what needs to be done to remove the tire from the bike?

pull, camera, bicycle, wheel
  • We begin to remove the wheel by washing out the brakes (in the case of V-Brake) or removing the caliper (disc), they can greatly interfere with the next steps.
  • Loosen the bolt or eccentric holding the wheel in the frame.
  • We take out the wheel.
  • We release excess air from the chamber through the nipple, it is important that there is as little air as possible, otherwise the camera can easily be touched and damaged.
  • We pry off the edge with the help of unbundling or its replacement at one point.
  • We measure 10-15 cm and repeat the operation, bending the segment between the two bevels, and, taking it outside the rim, outward.
  • Carefully continue removing the tires until one side is completely behind the rim.
  • We repeat the action in the same direction with the second side of the tire. Usually this stage is already easier.
  • Done!

Repair of the camera only is limited to items 1-7.

  • It is necessary to put on the tire, starting to lay it inside the rim with one side.
  • On the last 15-30 cm, we fix one side of the tire with a bead and carefully transfer the entire edge inside the rim.
  • Place the edge of the tire inside the rim and install the camera.
  • We repeat the process of folding through the rim with the second edge of the tire to finally put it on.
  • Done!
  • We mount the wheel, close the brakes.

Do not forget that all actions should be carried out correctly. Rubber does not like heavy loads, especially the thin and soft rubber used in cameras. All operations with the tube inside the tire should be done delicately.

Tools

Different tools will be needed depending on the design of the bike.

The minimum set is hands (preferably with gloves), nothing else is needed. What is used to facilitate the process?

  • Dismantling a bicycle wheel. small oblong plastic plates with a “hook” at the end. Very helpful to hold the edge when starting to dismantle without effort, and then remove it.
  • Any replacement of the folding. keys (from locks or wrenches), coins, sticks are often used (which is quite traumatic, by the way).
  • Wrenches for removing the wheel. there are also models where the axle is fixed with bolts, not eccentrics.
  • Pump. needed when installing the wheel back.

How to remove the QiCYCLE rear wheel

There are a little more operations with the rear wheel, but in general there is nothing complicated.

First of all, set the shifter to 1st gear.

Using a 10 key, unscrew the screw that secures the pusher body and remove the body.

On the left side, unscrew the second axle nut in the same way.

Now you need two 10 keys to unscrew the rear brake mount. One wrench. on the nut on the back of the feather, the second wrench. on the bolt in front.

Remove the chain and the wheel is free. But the rear brake cable keeps it from completely removing it. (In the photo you can also see the removed force sensor. I overdid it, you don’t need to remove it).

Although there is already access to the tire and tube, it is still better for convenience to unscrew the rear brake mounting nut and remove it. This will require keys for 8 and 17.

The brake is not screwed on very tightly, so the nut can be unscrewed easily, after which the brake can be easily removed.

And now we have in our hands a completely dismantled rear wheel.

I will not demonstrate how to change the tube or tire, since this procedure is completely analogous to the actions on the front wheel.

We assemble and install the wheel in reverse order. Important: first tighten the right axle nut, then the left (where the washer is). Then the load cell will not be overtightened.

After all the steps, check the functionality of the bike. Basically, if the work was done carefully, no problems should arise. QiCYCLE is very easy to disassemble and assemble.

How to remove a tire from a wheel

I didn’t think that disassembling the wheel would be a problem for me. Before buying my first car, this is almost the only thing that I knew how to repair. Rearranging the tire is not a problem for me after I have not finished smoking the nuts on the wheel of my father’s Muscovite. For the killed disk, Father made me completely remove and put on tires from all wheels that he found in the garage, including from Moskvich. But before I dealt with puzoterok wheels, but here they are big, hard. In general, a couple of blows with a sledgehammer on the corner and a tire bar will not do. I realized this when I needed to shove a camera into a tubeless camera. It would be possible to contact the service. But the last time they charged me 700 rubles. for the hole. Having a tool, a garage and hands are not out of. And in the forest, the need can happen. He jumped, spun, invented levers, put them under the car. Doesn’t break down. I already thought to put it back and take a ride so that it could be disassembled. Having rummaged through the vastness of the network in search of a convenient tool, I came across an article that clearly displays simple methods. I’ll post part of it as it is. Styrenna from the site www.suvorov-castom.ru.

There are several bumpless ways of easily tearing off the glued tire from the wheel rim. And the most common method, which by the way has several drawbacks, is a car hitting a board laid on a wheel tire, as in the photo.

It is not always possible to implement this in practice, since, firstly, you need a solid board, and secondly, in order to hit a punctured wheel, you need to replace this wheel on the car with a spare wheel, and if it is also punctured. over, if there is a spare wheel, then by installing it, you can safely drive to the nearest tire fitting.

Other non-shock wheel disassembly methods are based on the use of a standard jack of domestic cars. The use of a jack with the participation of the machine can be seen in the photo.

But most of the methods using a jack can be used without the participation of the machine (or rather, its weight).

Not everyone punches their own wheels, and not everyone repairs a bicycle on their own. Nevertheless, understanding how you can remove a tire from a bike and put in what you need for this and how to do it easily and without unnecessary problems is useful for most riders.

When we remove a bicycle tire?

  • The camera is broken. you need to remove the tire, then change the camera, and then assemble the wheel;
  • When replacing, in fact, bicycle tires. they tend to wear out, especially with aggressive or prolonged driving;
  • When servicing the wheel. when other elements, for example, the camera, can interfere.

Board cable

Its purpose is to securely fasten the tire in the wheel rim of the bike. Materials for its manufacture are kevlar (most often), synthetics or steel wire. Steel bead cable is the most budgetary. The cost of Kevlar cables is much higher, they have less weight, they are easy to store rolled up. You can take the Kevlar cable with you on your trip as a backup. It will not take up much space.

Tread

This is the part of the tire in direct contact with the road. Tire performance depends on tread depth and pattern variety.

For the manufacture of bicycle tires, ordinary rubber or polymer materials are used. Rubber has better adhesion to the surface, but in terms of wear resistance it is inferior to the compound. The cost of the compound is lower, but when driving off-road, it has proven itself better than rubber. By type, there are 4 main types of tread: slick, semi-slick, mountain, winter. Each of them behaves better in the environment for which it was created. Slick on the road, semi-slick on off-road, primer, winter tread has a stud for ice.

When is it necessary to remove or replace a tire

You may need to remove your bike tire in the following cases:

  • With a punctured camera. In this case, remove the tire, replace the punctured bicycle tube with a whole one, and then reassemble the wheel;
  • In case of tire wear. In particular, the tire wears out quickly with aggressive driving style;
  • When repairing a wheel of a bicycle, when the camera is simply in the way.

  • We repeat the action in the same direction with the second side of the tire. Usually this stage is already easier.
  • Done!

Repair of the camera only is limited to items 1-7.

  • It is necessary to put on the tire, starting to lay it inside the rim with one side.
  • On the last 15-30 cm, we fix one side of the tire with a bead and carefully transfer the entire edge inside the rim.
  • Place the edge of the tire inside the rim and install the camera.
  • We repeat the process of folding through the rim with the second edge of the tire to finally put it on.
  • Done!
  • We mount the wheel, close the brakes.

Do not forget that all actions should be carried out correctly. Rubber does not like heavy loads, especially the thin and soft rubber used in cameras. All operations with the tube inside the tire should be done delicately.

Secrets of Proper Use of Bicycle Tires

For a comfortable ride on a bike, an important point is optimal tire inflation. With insufficient inflation, the cyclist has to apply more forces while riding, the bicycle tires wear out faster. Over-pumping reduces traction, the ride becomes harder, the risk of puncture of the bicycle tube increases.

To minimize the risk of punctures, look for tires with good lateral coverage when shopping. Another indicator is cord weaving. The denser it is, the better the quality of the products. A useful device is a special anti-puncture tape located between the tire and the tube.

Dismantling a bicycle wheel

Cyclists, especially inexperienced cyclists, have problems with bending the tire bead using only their hands (dismantling process) In this case, use a special tool made of plastic or metal, small in size, it is called a pry bar or a dismantling paddle. He helps to cope with this task and to put the tire in place.

Understanding the question of how to replace the bicycle wheel camera

There are more and more people who like to ride with the breeze on a two-wheeled iron friend. The number of those who are faced with the everyday problem of punctured wheels is also increasing. Changing them is not the most difficult thing, but skills are needed here and there are some rules. This article will help you figure it out.

What a cyclist should always have in stock:

Ideally, there should always be a repair kit, a spare chamber, a pump. Together, this makes up an impressive weight and takes up a lot of space. For a small bike, this is inconvenient, but it is not always possible to limit yourself to ordinary gluing. What you definitely can’t do without:

  • keys;
  • pump;
  • repair kit.

All of the above will help to dismantle the damaged wheel and install a new one, with the installation of the camera.

Repair kit

  • Degreaser. Necessary when gluing damaged elements. Before applying the patch, they wipe the surfaces to be glued.
  • Stripping tool. Metal tool to pre-strip the camera.
  • Glue. Special glue for gluing rubber elements.
  • Patches. Made of rubber. There are several of them in the kit and they are different.

Preparatory step before removing tires

Immediately, as soon as you notice that the wheel is “flat”, get off the bike. Further long-term movement on an iron horse in this form will damage its moving parts even more. It is better to repair a wheel in a special room. It does not rain on you there, if it has gone, and there is all the necessary tool.

Tire replacement procedure

We have prepared everything necessary for the repair, let’s proceed:

  • We dismantle (remove) the damaged wheel. To do this, loosen the screw and raise the chain.
  • We remove the protective cap from the nipple, release the air from the chamber. If the spool is like in a car, press the button in the middle with a sharp object and hold it until the air leaves.
  • We hook the edge of the tire with a special tool or other suitable object in two places at a short distance from each other. We take it out of the rim. The use of a special tool is preferable for repairs, it is professional and convenient. However, in the absence of it, use what is at hand and suitable for these purposes. Wrenches (not thick), a spoon will do. Items should not have sharp edges to avoid damaging the camera. Do not apply excessive physical force to the camera, otherwise damage it further. Try to do everything with the necessary effort, but carefully. If using metal objects, be careful not to let them fly off and injure you.
  • We take out the camera without using an additional tool, just with our hands. We take out the spool (nipple) and then the camera itself.
  • Check for serviceability of the rim, the integrity and working condition of the tire.

The first stage of repair work is completed, we are starting to install the wheel

  • Make sure the rim, tire and tube are free of sharp, foreign particles and protruding parts (such as spokes).
  • Pump up the camera a little.
  • Check the spool, insert it into the rim hole.
  • Place the camera carefully in the tire cavity.
  • Using a special tool, or another suitable tool that does not have sharp edges, tuck the edges of the tire into the rim. If you can do it only with your hands, then the tool is optional.
  • Pump up the wheel, knead the tire. The camera should unfold freely, creases are not allowed.
  • Place the wheel on the bike and secure with the screw.
  • Inflate the chamber fully and screw the caps on the nipple.

The wheel repair process is over and you can move on.

Any cyclist can change a tire. Be prepared for necessary repairs, carry tools and materials. Having fixed the bike with your own hands once, you can also help your friends with advice and deeds.
