How to install a tire?
There is nothing difficult in replacing. Even beginners can handle this. The main thing is to remember that everything must be done carefully. Tires constantly require replacement, and it is difficult to protect yourself from punctures, in general. Therefore, a little effort and time, the availability of the necessary tools. and replacing the tire will not be difficult.
Important! After completing all the actions, you should wipe the treated area dry, completely removing all wet traces.
As for the correct tools for disassembling the wheel, they include: a jack and wrenches, mounting blades, a steel corner and the same hammer.
The process of mounting a bicycle tire is the same, but in reverse order.
For installation it is necessary to perform the following steps:
- Put the tire on the rim, then begin to put it into the rim gradually, first from one side;
- Install the tube by placing the edge of the tire inside the rim;
- Repeat the whole set of actions with the other edge of the tire, until you finally put it on.
How to get Bicycle tire off the rim without tools (better)
It remains to mount the wheel and close the brakes. When handling the tire, keep in mind that the tube is made of a soft and thin material. All actions must be carried out so as not to damage the camera.
How to disassemble tubeless tires with your own hands
All of the above operations will also work for tubeless tire removal. However, there is one nuance that should be remembered: very often the edges of such tires are literally welded to the rim, so it can be difficult to tear them off without damaging them. And percussion methods of disassembly in the case of tubeless tires are dangerous to use. To carefully separate the edge of the tire from the rim, it is advisable to use an ordinary jack, which is either tied to the wheel with a belt, or placed under some kind of support (if you had to change the tire on the road, then the bumper of the car can serve as a support).
Bicycle tire repair tools. an overview
To repair tubeless tires, bikers usually use:
The most common repair tool is a cord harness. This is a nylon strip impregnated with an adhesive. The harness is mounted using two awls: a spiral and an installation one. This method is cheap, but at the same time quite effective. Repair results are enough for about 6 months.
A rubber band is a more expensive but reliable option. Before installation, it is lubricated with glue, which is recommended by the manufacturer.
Anchor. the same harness, but ending with a patch.
In any case, the use of harnesses is not a final repair. Only tire fitters will be able to qualitatively repair a bicycle wheel.
Using a sealant is a quick but short-term tire repair, which will allow you to get to the tire workshop without any problems. The ease of use is phenomenal. It is only necessary to pump the compound through the tire valve. Of course, such actions are fraught with imbalance of the wheel, but repairs are provided in record time.
Try not to rush during the procedure and be attentive at every step. Any carelessness can then turn into problems on the road. If you keep an old tire, do not forget to check the inside of the tire for any piercing or cutting elements. It often happens that part of the object that pierced the camera breaks off and remains in the tire. This could damage the camera again. So, if you manage to find the culprit of the tragedy, make sure that you remove it completely.
When working with a montage, be sure to hold it with your hand, even if it seems to you that it is holding itself. The resistance of the tire can easily push it out. In the best case, it will just fall and you will have to start over. At worst, it will fly out with force and can hit you in the face. Feeling unpleasant, not to mention the fact that it can be traumatic.
If desired, the tire can be removed and replaced without the use of tools (this will be discussed in detail). But, if you follow all the rules, then it can come in handy:
- Dismantling for a bicycle wheel. It is an oblong shaped plastic plate equipped with a hook;
- If there is no disassembly, it can be successfully replaced by a key: from a lock or a wrench. As a last resort, you can use a coin;
- Bicycle wheel removal wrench. In some models, the wheel is not fixed to the eccentric, but to the bolt;
- Pump. You will need it when reinstalling your bike wheel.
