A Quick-Fix Guide 25 solutions to vexing problems. [Bicycling]


EVERY TIME YOU FIX A PUNCTURE, THE NEW TUBE GOES FLAT
If the holes in the tube are on the bottom, the rim strip may be out of position, allowing the tube to get cut by the spokes. If they're on the top, there may be some small sharp object stuck in the tire. Find it by running your fingers lightly around the inside of the tire, then remove it.

FREQUENT PINCH FLATS
Put more air in your tires.

A REMOUNTED TIRE WON'T SIT RIGHT ON THE RIM
Let the air out, wiggle the bad spot around, reinflate to about 30 psi, and roll the bad spot into place with your hands. By pushing the tire in toward the middle of the rim you will be able to see if any of the tube is poking out. When the tube is fully inside the tire, inflate as normal.
