Need instructions for installing innertube into a bike tire
Remove the wheel from bicycle.
Take the air off the wheel, by pressing with small screw driver or fingertip on the valve while make pressure on the tyre
With the help of a tyre remover lever or with somekind of non sharpie lever, put it between the tyre bed and the tyre and try to take the edge off the bed. Once you got one put another aroun one inch appart and repeat the procedure, then try to slip one of them all around the wheel and you will end with one side of the tyre off the wheel.
push the valve of the innertube in and pull off the innertube.
Put the new innertube inside the tyre and push the valve throught the orifice on the wheel.
By hand, try to put the tyre back on the bed, is good idea at this point put some air on the innertube, but not too much, just enought to get in the tyre and far from the tyre bed.
If not possible to put the tyre back on the bed by hand use the same tool to remove, but be very very carefull not to pinch the innertube, because is very easy to pinch it.
Put air on the tyre and put it back on the bicycle
