Removing rear tire

You need two tyre levers and soapy water. Leave out all air from tyre.
Put water on tyre with cloth. Place one tyre lever in between rim and tyre. Make sure it is firmly seated and lift tyre from rim. Place second in approx 10 cm a log rim and lift tyre. Now take out first and move 10cm along and again lift tyre. Tyre should now e loose enough to lift off.

How to remove the front wheel on bike to change inner tube

If the wheel is quick release all you need to do is turn the lever one half turn clockwise, and the wheel should drop out of the forks.If , however, it is retained by nuts you will need the appropriate size spanner - slacken the nuts and drop the wheel out. Open the valve ( or if it's a car type- depress the pin to let the air out). Next you need a set of three tyre levers (from your local cycle shop) Carefully ease one side of the tyre away from the rim. If there is a lock ring on the valve, undo it.Pull out the inner tube and replace with a new one. Ease the tyre back into position being careful not to trap the new tube.Blow up the tyre, refit the wheel,tighten the nuts or quick release system.Ensure that the wheel is secure before riding the bike.

Huffy green machine front tire is flat

There are nuts at each side of the axel, on which the wheel turns. These may have to loosened by a spanner or may have quick release levers. If there are levers pull them outwards from the wheel and you can then turn them to release the wheel. Let all the air out of the wheel. Then insert 2 levers under the edge of the tyre, about 6 inches apart and pull the tyre out over the rim of the wheel. Put in your finger and pull the rest of the tyre over the rim. Then lever the other side of the tyre over the same side of the wheel and remove the tube. Replace the tube ensuring that the valve for pumping is in place first. Replace the tyre as far as possible by hand and use the levers for the final few inches taking care not to trap the tube between the lever and the rim of the wheel as this could cut the tube. Place the wheel back on the bike and tighten the nuts.

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

I have kit, but no instructions on how to repair a bike tube. help please.I have bike tube repair kit with patches, glue and metal things

The metal thingy is used to roughen up the tube, where the patch will go, so the glue will stick. The glue may have instructions on it, but place glue onto the patch and the tube and let it dry for a few minutes, then place patch over hole.
when refitting the tube, sprinkle some powder on it around the patch and inside the tyre, make sure you have removed whatever caused the initial puncture. Try to refit the tyre without using any levers, so you dont pinch the tube again

I cant remove the tyre form my wheel.

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.

Good luck

Flat tyre

We've just had same problem with a drawing pin. The tyres have an inner tube (like a bicycle tyre) which you can fix with a puncture repair kit- just find your local bicycle shop or somewhere like Halfords for this. Good luck!

Help- wheel problem!

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.
