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

My wheelbarrow has a flat tire, how can I change it?

Depending on the type of wheelbarrow you have and the tires that it takes you might just need to patch the tire and then pump it with air, replace the innertube, or replace the whole tire.

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 (, 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!

Any tips on putting a new inner tube into the tire

If you have had a puncture check the inside of tire for likely causes of puncture (nails tacks etc THORNS if moutain biking in the countryside. Make sure the inner liner is o.k. partially inflate the innertube. Line up the valve with the hole in rim gently insert the tube into the tyre working from either side of the valve . Check that the innertube is not pinching as you press tyre into position again working both ways from the valve. Squeeze the tyre between hand and fingers to ensure the it is properly positioned, inflate and off you go.
