Question about Diamondback Cycling
Taking some air out of a tire depends on the type of valve you have:
If it looks like this: http://practicalbiking.org/wordpress/files/2010/05/2010_05_01_Schrader_valve_no_cap_DSC_7546.jpg It's called a Shrader valve. Simply press down on the little rod inside the valve using a fingernail or screwdriver or pin. Be careful though! The air comes out pretty fast!
But if it looks like this: http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2451/3882019093_918afc6b97.jpg It's called a Prest valve. You'll need to loosen counter-clockwise the small brass knob at the end of the valve stem. When tightened, it ensures no air can leak from it, and makes a good seal. But when loosened, you can just press on it to let a bit of air out. Remember to tighten it back up once your done though!
Hope this helps you! -The Chicken
