Do you have a neighbour who hates you? I do ride bikes for 60 years now, and never had two punctures in a row within half a year. Actually last 10 years only one puncture in one of my tires, and from the place I could deduce someone had pressed something sharp from the side into the tire. So nothing from the oad.
And the newer tires, are almost not to puncture when driving on a road. It must be someone punching in these holes. Because if some sharp thing pointing up on your road your front tire would have been punctured at least once or twice too.
I have an Itera Bicycle and I feel your pain, getting the rear wheel off was the hardest job Ive ever had to do with bikes! The wheel cant be just lifted off, I took the rear wheel out by wedging both sides of the frame apart then using brute strength to pull the wheel off. The guys in Sweden really didnt think this maintenence through when they built this thing! Obviously be careful though, I got some nasty blisters on my hands. There should be enough give in the plastic body to lever the wheel off, just hope I wont be getting any more rear punctures soon!!
I had the same problem with front wheel wobble, the fix for me was easy. I removed the four screws holding the foot rest in place and tightened the bolt holding the front wheel on, to tight and the wheel won't turn so leave the foot rest off and try it out until you get the the right amount of tension.
Yes, something isn't turning freely. It's either the front wheel, the back wheel, or the pedals and chain. Lift the bike off the ground and turn the front wheel by hand. If it doesn't turn very freely, it could be the hand-brake is dragging or the hub bearing is too tight. Try the back wheel in both directions. It should move freely in the forward direction. When rolling it backwards it is normal for the pedals to move too if this bike has a coaster brake (that is the kind of brake that is applied by pushing the pedals backwards.) It the back wheel moves forward freely, but backwards is a problem, then try the pedals by hand with the rear wheel off the ground. If this doesn't turn freely, the pedal crank bearing (a.k.a. bottom bracket) is too tight. Once you have identified the problem take it back to where you got it. It should be easy to fix, or they should replace it.
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.
Lift the front wheel, use jack or put something under the exhaust. Loosen the front wheel nut and pull out the bolt. Pull out the speedometer cap. Pull out the wheel. Now you got your front wheel off your bike. The rear wheel is harder to handle. You can bring the wheel to bike workshop or you can do it yourself provided that you got all the tools.
I've had two flats on the back tyre on my jane power twin - the first time myself and my husband bought a tyre puncture kit and fixed it. The second time we tried the same thing but the puncture was in such an awkward position that the patch wouldn't adhere to the tyre so I needed a replacement. I went to my nearest Mothercare shop which sells the power twin and asked them to order me a new tyre. It took a week but the part came it and it wasn't just a tyre it was a whole back wheel. They charged me 10 euros (7 Stg approx). Hope this helps.
Call or email the company. I had the same problem and they sent me a new inner tube for free b/c my stroller was still under warranty (yours should be too). I took the new tube and the stroller to a bike shop where they finished the repair for me for $5.
