How To Change A Bike Tyre

Changing a bike tyre is one of the things that all cyclists should know how to do. It’s certainly a job that warrants learning.

Depending on your wheel, you may need a 15mm wrench to remove it. Once you’ve done this, you can move on to the tyre itself. Start by using one or two tyre levers, if the tyre is really tight, though, you may need to use a third one. As well as the tyre levers, you’ll also need a pump, the tyre that you’re changing too, and possibly a new inner tube.
