I haven't found a solution I was given a Bell Motivator for Christmas. Every time I use it the rear tire goes flat. I have replaced the tire three times and the inner tube five times. My solution is to buy a real stationary bike and junk the Bell Motivator.

Are you saying you have a tire that goes flat on the trainer? It might help for you to determine the root cause of the flat when you repair it next time.

How to Change a Flat Bicycle Tire


1) Begin by looking at your old bicycle tire, and find the dimesions of the tire on its side. Write down these dimesions, becuase you must then go buy a new innertube for the tire that is the same (or about the same) size. I suggest going to a bicycle store; at the one near me tires run about 5-10 dollars.

2) With this new innertube in hand, you can begin changing your bike tire. You must start by taking off the entire bike wheel. To do this you need a hexagonal-shaped wrench thingy that looks like this:

See the hexagonal wrenches on the left side? You're ging to need something like that to remove the wheel. If you don't already have one, you can get this one from here (Walmart.com), or you can look up 'bike tool' on Amazon or Ebay.

3) You then use this tool to remove two hexagonal bolts, one on either side of the wheel; shown here:

Then use a flathead screwdriver or another falt object/tool to pop the outer tire off to expose the old innertube inside, like this:

4) Remove this old innertub, and put the new one around the wheel. It might seem a little big, but that's okay. Proceed by slipping the outer tire back on over the new innertube, using the same tool you got it off with.

5) Put the wheel back on the bike, screw the bolts back in, and inflate the tire to whatever PSI (Pounds per Square Inch) it says on the side of the tire.

6) You're bike is ready to ride again!

Remove the front tire?


Put the bike on a front stand, remove the wheel assembly and use the proper tools to remove and re install the tire after removing the wheel weights and the air from the tire. If you do not have the proper tire tools then remove the wheel/tire and take it to a shop to have the tires switched out. If you do not have the proper stand to allow you to get the front tire off take the bike to a shop and let them do what they are trained for. Either way unless you have a tire balancer you will have to get a shop to balance it for you.

Struggling to fit replacement inner tube and tyre to our quinny buzz3... Any tips?


You need a set of tire levers to begin with.. anyplace that sells bike parts/tubes tires will have these.. they are just a nicely set of angled thin yet dull levers.

Using the levers you will need to lift one edge of the tire off the rim so the tire is half way on the wheel. To simply replace the tube.. continue on to B.

To completely remove the tire off the wheel.. flip the wheel over and using the levers pry the tire the rest of the way off the wheel. working your way around.. it will be snug then suddenly free.

Replaceing the tire is the same..except you only want to put it on half way before inserting the tube..


B. Remove the air stem cap and if you have the tool to remove the needle valve from the stem.. do that too as to let ALL the air out of the flat.. then pull the bad tube out.

Put the new deflated tube inside the wheel as flat and wrinkle free as possible starting with placing the air stem through the wheel.. and working it around until well seated.. some folks will use a bit of talcum powder on the tube.. usually they come dusted to allow them to properly fit when inflated.

Once you have the tube in the wheel.. start pressing the tire bead back under the rim.. depending on the wheel.. you may want to partly inflate the tube.. just a tiny bit.. so it will not get trapped between the tire and wheel rim when you re-seat the tire.. you can usually re-seat the tire to the rim with your fingers..becareful not to pinch yourself.

Inspect the wheel to make sure no parts of the inner tube is visible.. inflate to proper psi.. put on the stem cap.. replace the wheel.

You can buy a set of tire liners that will prevent punctures.. but of course this involves doing most of the above times four.

Lastly.. if you feel you just can't get it done.. stop by a good bike shop.. they will do it for you in just a few minutes.. possibly for no charge or little charge.

Best of luck!

I have a 1992 Chevy Lumina Van with Alum. rims that leaks air out of the tires. Is there a fix for that or do i need to buy steel rims? Any info. would be appreciated. Thanks.


What you have is a very common and annoying problem with aluminum wheels. There are 3 things you can do. Take it to a tire shop and have them put rubber sealant around the bead, put fix a flat in each tire, or like you said, buy steel wheels.

The training wheels won't reach the ground. I loosened them and lowered as much as possible and theare still above the back tire and will not touch the ground at the same time


The training wheels are not meant to be as low as the back wheel. The idea is that the child learns to balance the bike but if it goes over to one side the training wheel touches the ground and stops the bike from falling

Denali GMC 700C Women's road bike wrong tires!!!


Can you explain why you think the tires are too big? Do they NOT fit the rims? What condition was this bike in when you bought it? If the brake pads line up with the rims then the wheels are correctly sized for the frame.

I insralled training wheels, but now the chain does not move, why?


I'd look for unwanted contact between the hardware attaching the training wheels rear wheel nuts and the chain, wheel, gear or tire.

I suspect a screw is a tad too long.

Install training wheels


when installing the training wheels, check to see if it is put together in this order ....flat washer, training wheel, flat washer, lock washer, nut. I hope this helps. If you are missing any of these you can find them at any auto parts store, Wal-mart, or hardware store such as Lowe's or Home Depot. (Be sure to take the traing wheel and nut to make sure you have the right size)
