I personaly wouldn't recommend loosening any spokes,ive never had to do this and you could get into all sorts of bother trying to straighten up the wheel afterwards.
First make sure that you have let down all the air out of the inner tube (if theres any left).Next with both hands grab the tyre and make sure that the bead of the tyre (where the tyre sits in the rim of the wheel) is loose and away from the rim (sometimes the bead can get stuck against the rim and this will make it much harder to remove the tyre).Do this all the way round the tyre and on both sides.Now if you have a very good quality tyre lever,wet it slightly and the tyre casing as well with some soapy water and try to lever the tyre bead up and over the edge of the rim of the wheel.While holding this position use a second tyre lever in the same way about 2 inches further away and do the same thing.Once you get both levers down you should (hopefully) find the rest of the trye starts to come off a bit easier.Just wiggle and push one of the levers along the bead of the tyre until most of the tyre is off and your there.
Putting the tyre back on is just as much fun!Only try not to use the tyre levers as much as you can very easily damage the new inner tube that your trying to put in.So eat 3 weetabix and you should then have the strength to attempt this.

Deflate the tyre completely by removing the tyre valve only then undo the nuts on the outer bolts take the two halves of the wheel apart remove the old inner tube noting carefully how the valve was placed through the wheel. Check the wheel interior and rims for rough or rusty patches, clean it up fit the new (empty) inner tube making sure that nothing is pinched reassemble the wheel halves together and be sure to fully tighten all nuts before fitting a new inner tube valve and you are ready to inflate the wheel. Do this in stages and gently bounce the wheel to settle the tube and rims then continue inflating continue a bit beyond the recommended tyre pressure and then release the air to the optimum pressure.
idea. If you have uniform wheels, consider buying a 5th wheel as a spare and fit it to the tow bar/ accessory attachment point behind your seat. I've done this on my venerable Pride Celebrity XL8.
Yes. Be careful! Only remove the wheel's central nut, NOT the outer ring of nuts yet. Remove the tyre valve slowly and with care to empty the inner tube. Remove the wheel by tapping the rear of the wheel as necessary - be careful to remove the axle key and keep it safely to one side. Remove the remaining wheel nuts split the wheel and remove the tube from the tyre and wheel. Check the wheel inner surfaces for rough spots and clean. Insert the new tube and making sure that nothing is pinched reassemble the wheel inflate the tyre to the recommended pressure in stages gently bounce the wheel once or twice to help the tyre to seat properly. Inflate to just above the recommended pressure and release surplus air. Offer the wheel up to the axle with the wheel and axle key slots exactly opposite each other. Insert the "key" in the slot and gently hammer it home.

Simply buy a replacement spoke. Unscrew the dustcap on the tyre valve and deflate the tyres inner tube. Remove tyre using tyre levers(as you do to repair a puncture). Next remove the inner tube to reveal the spoke tensioners. undo the tension nut and allow the broken spoke to fall out, feed the other part of the broken spoke out of the hub. feed the replacement spoke through the hub and into the hole on the wheel rim. Now screw on the tensioning nut to the spoke.Tighten up to the same tension as the other spokes. replace inner tube and tyre, then reinflate. Viola!
hi, the chances are you have a puncture os something sharp sticking into the inner tube inside the tyre, what you need to do is buy a puncture repair kit then using the repair kit you take the tyre off the wheel then take the inner tube out. now blow the inner tube up and place it in bowl of water and you should see bubbles coming off the inner tube, mark this with pen when dry so you know where the whole is, now use the puncture kit and place a patch over the whole, you can buy glue type patches or stick on patches without glue, you peel the back off the patch and put glue on or stick it over the whole if its a stick on patch and not glue.
then whilst this dry run your fingers around the inside of the tyre and check for any thorns or something sharp sticking in the tyre if you feel anything remove it and you should be ok, then when glue dry put the inner tube back in tyre and fit the tyre back on wheel now when you pump it up it shouldnt go back down unless you get another puncture.
if you are unsure what you are doing then taking your stroller into any bike shop and ask them to repair the punctures for you and they will do this for you whilst you wait.
Hi it sounds like you have something stuck in th tyre itself that is punturing the new inner tube, take them out & feel inside the tyre if there is anything sharp there remove it. Then you can repair the tubes.
No sorry but you can get new inner tubes very cheaply off ebay & something called gludge(i think thats what it is called) anyway all bike shops sell it so does ebay, you can buy it to put inside tyre so you won't get a punture or a spray which you put inside inner tube it seals it right away if you get a puncture . it is easy to do I did it myself.
hi there you need to remove the rear wheel an then remove tyre fom one side of the rim to be able to pull the inner tube out pretty much the same as you would with a bicycle tyre and wheel and either repair the hole if repairable or simply replace the inner tube and refit tyre and wheel hope this helps you
The wheel will have to be removed firstly. Then with something blunt, (like a spoon handle, not too flexible, and smooth,) carefully pry up the bead of the tyre over the rim of the wheel, now it's easier to take a second lever or spoon handle, and repeat the process, a couple of inches away from the first. Then you should easily be able to run the smooth lever, around the tyre and rim, to expose the tube. Then push the valve through the wheel, if neccesary, and remove the tube. You should also inspect the inside of the tyre, thoroughly, to make sure that there isn't anything in there that shouldn't be. After you are sure all is well, just reverse the procedure. Just make sure that the tube does not get 'pinched' between the tyre and wheel. Hope that helps.
