Being a bicycle shop owner, I notice that most people really don't know how to change a flat tire. Not knowing how to change your own flat tire can mean you’re stuck on the side of the road, having to call someone to pick you up! If you’re in a race, it could be the difference in your overall finishing time of 5-25 minutes. Not to mention tons of added stress!
This can be easily preventable by taking a few minutes to learn the proper technique.
This is a video of our Pro Race Mechanic Sean Belfast at a group ride demonstrating how to change a flat tire. It’s about 5 minutes and well worth the time. Enjoy, and please let us know if you have any questions.
Pacific Swim Bike Run offers free flat tire clinics at least once a month. The next one is this Thursday, September 20th at noon and 6pm. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org as space is limited.
