Changing a tyre

Changing a tyre doesn't have to be an expensive and time-consuming ordeal. We agree that it's a little inconvenient when you go to ride your bike and a tyre is flat, but by following these steps outlined in a very easy-to-understand and uncomplicated way by Trek Bicycle, you can fix it yourself and be back on your bike in no time.

Tips from Piotr

1. Do not rush. The subject that punctured your tyre is probably still stuck in there so take your time to investigate the cause before putting in the new inner tube.

2. Take time putting the tyre back on. This can be a challenging task, reassemble it slowly.

3. Always remember to check the brakes and whether the wheel is secured in the frame before going off on the bike.
