While some components on your bicycle may be different than those shown here, the process will be the same.

    • Insert the flat part of a tire lever under the tire coping. Apply pressure to the other end of the lever to lift the tire up and out of the wheel.

    • Slide the lever around the circumference of the wheel to completely remove the tire.

      • Alternatively, if you have multiple tire levers, see if you can clip the first lever to a spoke to keep it in place. Then insert the second lever a few inches away. Clip it to a spoke. Insert the third lever a few more inches along. Take out the second lever and insert it it a few inches past the third. Work along the rim until the tire pops off.

Re-insert the tube into the tire, and align the tube with the hole in the rim. Using the plastic tire levers, re-seat the tire on the rim. When inflating the tire, proceed slowly, ensuring that the bead is seated properly on the rim.
