Question about Cycling
A part on my Presta Valve broke and I need to replace it. Is there a way to replace it without getting a new inner tube as well? And what size inner tube do I need for a Transeo GT 2.0 Medium size bike?
Unfortunately you have to buy a new tube...The size you need is embossed on the sidewall of the tire.

I recommend replacing the inner tube, the size is on your tire. I think that you should pay to have it done at a repair shop if it has gears, it will be worth it in the long run

Sue, there are lots of how-to videos out there about this. Just google "How to change bike tube" or tire, or flat. You have to remove the wheel, which is easiest with TWO wrenches - they can be the adjustable "Crescent" wrenches, but don't use pliers. You also have to remove the small screw that holds the fat little L-shaped lever to bike. Use a rag to remove the chain from the cog on the wheel. Then use the little "Tire irons" to remove the tire from the rim and get the old tube out - these come three to a set, the plastic ones are best, and you can get them at K-mart. Also, use some baby powder (talc is better than cornstarch) to make the new tube easier to position correctly in the tire - sprinkle the powder inside the tire when you have if off and put the tube in the tire before you put the tire back on the rim. It helps if you put a little air in the tube to make it a nice sausage first. And make sure you get the valve stem straight and pulled all of the way through the hole in the rim. Be very careful that you don't pinch the tube against the rim when you put the tire back on. And the hardest part might be getting a pump to hold tight onto the valve stem - using compressed air (like at a gas station) is by far the easiest method. Good luck.
