Class: Tubes and Tires

  • The Bicycle Tree 811 N Main St Santa Ana, CA 92701 (map)

No bike should sit sad and lonely due to something as simple as a flat tire. Knowing how to repair a flat tire is one of the most important skills to learn for bicycling happiness.

This will be a hands-on workshop where each participant will repair a flat tire. In this workshop, we will:

• Discuss the wide world of tires, tubes, tire liners, rim strips, and rims.

• Remove wheels from bikes

• Remove tires from rims using tire levers

• Remove inner tubes, identify their sizing, find holes, and patch them. We will also discuss selecting and using new tubes.

• Install tubes and tires on the wheel

• Install wheels on bikes

• Air tires to proper pressure

We will have bikes and wheels to use for the class - no need to bring your own bike.
