How to Fix a Flat Tire (Introduction)


Many bicycles sit unused in American garages because owners are daunted by the task of either fixing the flat or taking the bike to a bike store for repair.


It is true that beginners can spend up to an hour trying to fix a flat. And it is true that sometimes they are not successful even after all that effort.


With the information in these instructions and practice, most people should be able to fix a flat in under 10 minutes. Practice at home when you are not in a hurry-you'll feel more confident if you get a flat on the road.
