How to put a tire on a bicycle wheel

Summing up

Congratulations, you learned how to glue a bicycle tube yourself! As you can see, there is nothing complicated here and even a seven-year-old child can do this. Maybe someone will tell you that you need to sand the camera with sandpaper before applying the glue, and this person will be right. Also, if he tells you that the glue should be applied only to the camera, and not to the patch. Previously, I also cleaned with emery, but then I noticed that even without it, everything is glued with a bang. And I apply glue in the old fashioned way on both surfaces to be glued, for reliability, as my grandfather taught. In general, try it, you will succeed! Also, be sure to watch my video, which I shot especially for you, so that you understand everything as best as possible. Write to me about your result in the Комментарии и мнения владельцев below. That’s all for now!

Step 6

Take the prepared patch and remove the protective foil from it. Apply a pea-sized glue in an even layer, spreading it evenly with a match over the entire surface of the patch. Do the same with the camera. Let the glue dry for 5 minutes.

How to put on a bicycle tire

Today’s article will be devoted to such a simple matter as putting a tire on a wheel. In the last article I wrote about how to remove a tire from a wheel. so this information should be helpful.

  • Rim
  • Tire with tube
  • Wrench or spade

First of all, we put on the tire (without a camera) on the rim only half, or rather, insert only one part of the tire into the rim. As a result, it will look something like this:

Next, we put the wheel so that the open part of the tire is on top. Now we lay the completely deflated chamber exactly along the contour of the wheel.

We insert the camera under the tire, starting from the nipple

When the whole chamber is under the tire, we take the wheel with both hands and insert the tire into the rim with our thumbs.

It is necessary to start from the side of the nipple, so as not to damage it in the future.

Then you can get to the point where it is already very difficult to insert the tire with your hands. For this case, you will need a wrench (or spatula), insert it from the edge and continue to put the tire on the rim

Done, the tire is on the wheel, it remains only to pump up the camera.

If you have any questions, please ask in the Комментарии и мнения владельцев.

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 pushing the 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 turns 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 release the fixing nuts on the bushing a little.

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.

  • How to properly put a tire on a bicycle wheel. Before putting a tire on a wheel, you must first check it for thorns. To do this, you need to feel the tire with your fingers from the inside along the entire perimeter. If there are thorns, they can be easily felt with your fingers. If there are any, they will need to be removed. The thorns are easy to pick out with a needle or pin. After the tire has been checked, take the wheel and slide one side of the tire onto the rim. The next step is to move on to the camera. We take the camera and lay it out along the perimeter of the rim. Now the camera needs to pump up a little. You need to pump up only slightly, so that it can correctly, without folds, expand inside the tire on the rim. After pumping up the camera, we find a hole for the nipple on the rim. From this place, we begin to lay out the camera. We insert the nipple on the camera into the hole found and carefully place the camera into the tire along the perimeter of the rim. The camera is unfolded, we proceed to refueling the other side of the tire into the rim. Usually, everything is easy to do by hand. But, if at the last stage difficulties arise and it is not possible to manually fill in, you can use the handle of the spoon. It has no sharp parts and will not pierce the camera. With its help, we help the tire to fall into place on the wheel rim. We installed the camera with the tire on the wheel. Now we need to pump it up a little. It’s too early to pump up completely. We pumped up the camera a little, now we will knock our wheel in a circle. Thanks to this, the tube in the tire will finally fit correctly. Another very important point. This is the nipple section. It happens that the nipple, when installed on the rim, enters the hole completely, and then, when the tire is installed, its edges abut against the base of the nipple (it is rigid). As a result of this, a “ghoul” is obtained on the tire in the place of the nipple. To avoid this, you need to fix this area. To do this, we press the nipple into the tire, fix the side parts of the tire in this area on the rim and then pull the nipple back. After this operation, you can tap the wheel again and already pump it up completely.

Puncture protection for bicycle tubes and tires

A puncture on the road is the most common and common problem among cyclists. Absolutely every cyclist can face this failure, therefore, it is very important to know how to act correctly if a wheel puncture has already taken place.

Most often, bicycle tires have a tread, which can be used to judge the level of tire wear. If the tread has worn off and the center of the tire has become smooth, then the rubber has outlived its time and should be replaced. If you continue to ride on a worn tire, the chance of getting a puncture increases significantly. In slicks. initially smooth tires, in many models, special notches are made deep into the tire. When the notches are no longer visible, this is also a sign that it is time to change the tire.

How it works with CST sealant:

In the carrier liquid, which is not subject to evaporation, the finest synthetic fibers are dissolved, which, in the event of a puncture, under the action of internal pressure in the chamber, enter the hole and reinforce it. Then, as the wheel rotates, the polymer particles adhere to the fibers and plug the hole. Further, during movement, under the action of centrifugal force, moisture is squeezed out of the formed plug, the polymer becomes more and more compacted, and the plug formed from the inside becomes stronger and stronger, reliably plugging the hole.

CST does not guarantee sealing glass or metal cuts larger than 3mm in diameter. But, as our experience and experiments have shown, the number of holes that it can eliminate reaches several dozen.

Step 4

After marking any puncture points, wipe the chamber dry with a cloth. Next, you need the following inventory:

  • Degreaser (96% alcohol, gasoline or nail polish remover);
  • Cotton wool or cotton pads;
  • A set of patches from a bicycle first aid kit (this includes glue and patches themselves);
  • Match (needed for even application of glue over the surface);
  • Any heavy object (dumbbell, pot of water).

How it works in conventional sealants:

In sealants existing on the market today, rubber is used basically dissolved in easily evaporated solvents. When the composition comes into contact with the open air, the solvent evaporates and, as a result, the rubber hardens. This removes the puncture. The problem with this approach is that due to natural diffusion, the concentration of the solvent in the chamber drops within 3-6 months, the sealant thickens and ceases to perform its functions. In fact, the cyclist is faced with the fact that he does not remember exactly when he filled in, and does not know when the sealant will stop working. As a result, according to the law of meanness, when there is no spare camera or glue with you, the patch will have to walk home

Summing up

Congratulations, you learned how to glue a bicycle tube yourself! As you can see, there is nothing complicated here and even a seven-year-old child can do this. Maybe someone will tell you that you need to sand the camera with sandpaper before applying the glue, and this person will be right. Also, if he tells you that the glue should be applied only to the camera, and not to the patch. Previously, I also cleaned with emery, but then I noticed that even without it, everything is glued with a bang. And I apply glue in the old fashioned way on both surfaces to be glued, for reliability, as my grandfather taught. In general, try it, you will succeed! Also, be sure to watch my video, which I shot especially for you, so that you understand everything as best as possible. Write to me about your result in the Комментарии и мнения владельцев below. That’s all for now!

Step 2

After you take out the camera, be sure to check the inside of the tire for any remaining thorns. To do this, walk in a circle with the fingers of both hands on the inner surface, there may be small thorns that are not always visible from the outside.

Step 7

After the glue is dry, take the patch and press it firmly against the surface of the camera. You, of course, can feel like a vice, standing in this position for several minutes, or you can take a dumbbell, for example, and put the patches on top of the floor for an hour. When the whole thing is settled, you can remove the protective film on top of the patch and safely put the camera back into the wheel.

Ways to protect tires from punctures:

  • Protective tape. A special tape made of more durable rubber than the tube, or another, even more durable material, is installed between the tube and the tire. An object that has punctured the tire must rest against the protective tape and protect the camera. Unfortunately, this method of protection is far from the most effective. Often, the protective tape, after some time, slips and begins to rub the camera in some place.
  • Latex cameras. Latex is more elastic than rubber. It is more difficult to puncture, but it also does not guarantee complete puncture protection. In addition, latex chambers allow air to pass through faster, and the wheels will have to be pumped up more often. Usually, these cameras are used by athletes in competition, latex is lighter than rubber.
  • Sealant. Ordinary cameras are on sale, but with a special liquid inside. or the liquid is filled manually through the nipple. The point is that the punctures are sealed with sealant on the go, the wheel can deflate a little. In most cases, you will not even know that there was a puncture. Alas, it also does not guarantee 100% protection. With a large diameter of damage to the chamber, most likely, the sealant will not be able to seal it and the wheel will still be lowered, the sealant will leak out.

Step 4

After marking any puncture points, wipe the chamber dry with a cloth. Next, you need the following inventory:

tire, bicycle, wheel
  • Degreaser (96% alcohol, gasoline or nail polish remover);
  • Cotton wool or cotton pads;
  • A set of patches from a bicycle first aid kit (this includes glue and patches themselves);
  • Match (needed for even application of glue over the surface);
  • Any heavy object (dumbbell, pot of water).

Greetings, dear friend! I know why you came here. broke a wheel on your favorite bike after a good ride? Well, with whom it does not happen! Thorns, glass, nails, as well as other evil spirits come across to us on the road and sometimes presents surprises in the form of another puncture. But do not despair, in this article you will learn how to properly glue a bicycle camera, because there is nothing complicated about it.

Here you were driving yourself calmly enjoying active rest and the surrounding landscapes, drove onto a country road, not even thinking about the hidden “surprises” cunningly awaiting you somewhere down there. And now you go further, and at this time a thorn stuck into the wheel, just like some kind of leech. After a few kilometers, or maybe meters, you begin to notice that something is wrong with the bike. it has become harder to pedal, control has deteriorated. Well, that’s sad, you got a puncture! I hope you haven’t forgotten to bring a spare camera with you. because it will take a long way to roll the bike.

Well, let’s step back from the lyrics and move on to practice. What if you puncture your camera? Returning home, immediately inspect the tire of the wheel on which the puncture occurred. Most often, the thorn remains sticking out in it. If you find this infection, then carefully pull it out with tweezers, because if you break off a thorn with your fingers, it will be much more difficult to pull it out. Ok, done! Then we will act with you according to the step-by-step instructions below.

Step 3

Your next task will be to find and then defuse the puncture in the chamber. Take a household bowl at home and fill it with water. Then pump up the camera well and submerge it in the water. Rotate it slowly, starting from the nipple, and when you see air bubbles, pull out the camera and circle the puncture site with a ballpoint pen.

Step 5

Take a degreaser, moisten cotton with it and then wipe the puncture site with it (remove all dirt and paste from the handle). Remember the place where the hole is and prepare the patch while the alcohol evaporates.

How To Fit Any Difficult-To-Fit Bike Tyre

Designation on some tires with directional arrows.

Tires are marked with a ROTATION or DRIVE arrow. this is the recommended direction for wheel rotation. The tire is oriented on the wheel by rotation in the direction of the arrow in the direction of the bicycle, clockwise.

For front and rear wheel, arrows in different directions

Arrows FRONT. direction of rotation for the front wheel and REAR. direction of rotation for rear wheel.

A new tire and a used one must be installed according to the arrows on the side of it, on some the arrows are replaced with inscriptions in English, and the arrows can additionally show the direction. Arrows and labels indicate the clockwise direction of rotation of the wheel.

How To Change A Bike Tyre

Having decided on the direction, we pull without any keys, only with our hands one side of the tire onto the rim so that the arrows on the side surface point clockwise of the clock.

In order not to look for the nipple of the camera for pumping it in the future, it is necessary that the brightest pattern on the tire coincides with the nipple hole on the rim, so we turn the tire on the rim until this pattern coincides with the nipple hole on the rim.

Rear Bicycle Wheel.

We put the wheel on a flat surface with a ratchet up. It could be the ground near the bike. We inspect the tire itself. If this is a tire that has already been on your bike, then you need to make sure that there are no remnants of glass, wire, nails and the tire cord is not worn anywhere or exposed.

Cord is a wire insertion into the tire at the innermost diameter of the rubber. tire seat. Broken, exposed cord does not hold the shape of the tire and could damage the tube.

Instruments

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 bead. often used keys (from locks or wrenches), coins, sticks (which is quite traumatic, by the way).
  • Keys for removing the wheel. there are also models where the axle is fixed with bolts, and not eccentrics.
  • Pump. needed when installing the wheel back.

How to Put on New Bike Tire & Tube | Bicycle Repair

There were graters with Fox about the correct installation of tires.

Actually what is the problem: There are 2 led and 2 types of tires (for convenience, different angles are selected)

Type 1 (standing by Fox, the drawing looks like a symbol):

Type 2 (stand at DELa, tread pattern, side view //// | (rectangular trapezoid)):

Fox says it’s the right way to fit tires.

My opinion is that they should be like this: Type 1

The theme was created solely in order to find the truth.

Most tires have ‘Drive’ written with an arrow to indicate the normal direction of rotation of the wheel. If there is no such inscription, then the tire is either absolutely symmetrical and it does not matter how to install it, or the manufacturer. lazy person. In the latter case, you can try to determine the direction of rotation from the tread pattern. As a rule, evil rubber has a herringbone type structure, that is, the track resembles something like this: ” The correct direction of rotation is such that the opening of the Christmas tree on the track is directed forward. The bicycle shown in the example trail has traveled from left to right. An example of the correct direction of real tires. on the picture.

those. As I understand from this, correctly installed tires should leave a trail of the Christmas tree directed forward. which contradicts what Fox says.

P.S. Again, not for the purpose of an argument, but for the sake of truth.

it all depends on which tire, if it is one-sided, then you need to put it as the arrow with the inscription Rotation or Direction indicates, if the tire is two-sided, then it usually has two oppositely directed arrows and under each Front or Rear is indicated. those. if you put the cover in front, then in accordance with the arrow at the Front inscription. If you put back, then in accordance with the arrow and the inscription Rear.

But an experienced biker can put the tires however he wants, depending on what he wants from each wheel. For example (using the example of Kenda nevegal): 1. There is a desire for the front tire to be more tenacious on the ground and under braking, and the rear rolling then the front tire is placed NOT as indicated on the sidewall of the tire. 2. I want to roll from both tires (the rowing and tenacity decreases): the rear should be put as it should (as the arrows indicate) 3. I want more grip on the whole bike (roll-off and braking speed are reduced):

BUT! here a lot depends on the structure and type of tread. And is largely determined by personal experience.

Conclusion: Yes, Del and Zhazh, you really got a little screwed up, it happens and it is quite forgivable. Fox told me about this shit today, and today he looked at how his tires were installed. they are standing correctly from the point of view of the manufacturer’s recommendation.

The direction of movement, according to the manufacturer’s definitions, must match the arrow indicated by you Drive.

I would put the bottom tire forward in the Drive direction, because it will hold the side loads well, and the upper back in the order you indicated. This will give: roll of the front tire and good handling, coupled with good braking, Poor braking / roll and lateral stability of the rear tire (which are not so important to me) but it will row well.

tire, bicycle, wheel

This setting on asphalt is not particularly relevant, but it is suitable for any soil.

PS: By the way, if you think carefully, it is easy to find that there is no difference from the bottom view or from the top

THE MOST RIGHT SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM, RESPECT: john_lennon (00:27:05 23/03/2009)

tires should be labeled with the office on the right)

jaj, this is not the FOX method (with all due respect to him), but the method of the majority 2. Drozd has already told you about two types of tires. I will give examples on which I skated myself: Maxxis LarsenTT. unilateral, one arrow on the sidewall Scott OXYD, Scott Ozon, Continental Mountain King. with two arrows and different direction of installation front / rear, respectively. 3. refers to the highlighted quote.

complete nonsense! Scott Ozon, installed according to the manufacturer’s recommendations, bears the inscription ANIMAL on different sides. but in Continental, apparently, they took into account all the subtleties of cycling feng shui, and despite the fact that the tires are installed on different sides, the Continental inscription on one side
