I have done a similar thing with my mountain bike. The first number is the size of your wheel. The second number is how thick your tire is. You can get any road tire that has a "24" in the first number of the 24X***. Depending on the number after the 'X' you will probably need to get an inner tube that falls within that size. Most of the inner tubes will have a range for that second number. If the number is too large the inner tube will not fit inside the road tire.
the tire size is molded into the side wall of the tire. It will look something like: 26 x 2.125 or 700 x 35c
If the bike does not get a lot of use, you will notice after a few weeks that the tires are soft, this is because butyl rubber tire seep air, just like you car tires do over time. You may have picked up thorn or multiple thorns or glass and this could be imbedded in the tire. The tubes manufacturers spec on new bikes are notoriously thin and very prone to flats. Try replacing your tubes with Thorn Resistant tubes or tubes that have tire sealant in them like Slime Tubes (brand name). Remember to rub your fingers on the inside of the tire before installing a new tube to make sure you have removed the offending thorn, or else you are going to have another flat, sure as shootin'.
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.
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
Your inner tube is leaking air. Remove the wheel and remove the tire on one side only (one bead over the rim edge) to allow access to the inner tube. remove the tube and the tire the rest of the way. Basic tire removing tools are neccesary such as tire spoons and rim protectors. check the rim for sharp points as well as any debris that might have punctured the tire. Check the inside of the tire very carefully as well. If somthing punctured the tire it might be still sticking out on the inside - a potential hazard to your fingers. Patch the tube or, better yet, replace it - a much more dependable solution. Install one bead of the tire back on and then the tube. Infate and deflate the tube with one side of the tire off the rim to ensure proper fit and arrangement of the tube inside the tire. Reinstall the tire and the wheel back into the bike following manufacturers recommended procedures and torques found in a service manual.
True Goo inner tube sealant! Go to a bicycle repair shop with your stroller, and honestly, have all the tires shot up with this goo and then pumped up to your desired firmness...
I have a different jogging stroller, but I know the Maxi Cosi's Mura has the same air pump access as other bicycle tires like my jogger does. I kept getting flats, and this goo has kept my tires firm for 6 years now, I used to have to bring along a pump, but never again after this repair, it plugged up a small leak for one of my tires that kept going flat quickly and keeps the others from the eventual softness that was recurring.
The tube has rotated on the rim. You will need to let the air out of the inner tube then "break the bead " on the tire to free the tire from the rim. With the tire edges now separated from the rim you can squeeze the tire and tube together as you turn the tire in the direction needed to rotate the inner tube back into alignment with the hole in the rim. Now refill the inner tube to 5 lbs less than the max pressure noted on the sidewall of the tire. Low tire pressure is what allowed the tire to spin on the rim, taking the tube with it.
