Changing a Flat

Despite our best efforts, most bike riders will experience a flat at least once while riding. Replacing a tube or tire can seem like a daunting task, but we're here to help! In this episode of "Riding Rad" we take you through the steps you'll take to remove your wheel, replace your tube, and get you back riding!

 Watch the video below and contact Rad Power Bikes if you have questions. If you are not confident in your ability to successfully and safely perform all steps, we recommend having the work performed by a local, certified, and reputable bike mechanic. 

Replacement tires and tubes can be found on our Replacement Parts Page

 When changing a tire or tube, ensure that all air pressure has been removed from the inner tube prior to removing tire from the rim. Failure to remove all air pressure from the inner tube could result in serious injury. It is critically important that proper air pressure is always maintained in pneumatic tires. Do not underinflate or overinflate your tires. Low pressure may result in loss of control, and overinflated tires may burst. Failure to always maintain the air pressure rating indicated on pneumatic tires may result in tire and/or wheel failure. Inflate your tires from a regulated air source with an available pressure gauge. Inflating your tires from an unregulated air source could overinflate them, resulting in a burst tire.
