The first step is to remove the wheel assembly from the bike. Once that is done insure all the air is removed from the tube by holding in the needle on the valve stem. You may have to remove the cap from your valve stem first. Next, using a flat blunt tool, pry the inside lip of the tire away from the rim and hold down the tool. Make sure you don't have the tube pinched with your tool. Next, using a second tool, repeat the first step about 6" from the first tool. This should start the tire to come off the rim on the side you are working on. You should now be able to pull out the tube and inspect for holes. Use a simple tire patch kit if you can or simply replace the tube. To replace the tube, remove the valve stem cap and insert it from the tire side through the hole in the rim for access. Replace cap on stem to help hold valve in place. Carefully lay tube inside tire without folding it. You may have to bunch it up a bit. Start pushing tire edge back around the edge of the rim. When you get almost to the end it will get tough to if the tire is tight.Use your blunt tool to help it over the edge of the rim. Once the tire is on, make sure the valve stem is pulled up tight and straight before refilling with air. Inspect the tire to make sure it is seated on the rim all the way around on both sides. If not, release air from tube and make adjustments and refill. Replace wheel on bike and enjoy your day! Big Daddy
