Giriş

There are many reasons why a bicycle tire may become flat. Often it is caused by running over debris or pumping up the tires too much. Punctures can create small holes that can cause slow leaks whereas tires pumped up too much will cause the inner tube to burst. When anything like this occurs, the inner tube needs to be replaced. This guide will demonstrate the process required to fix a worn or punctured bike tube on a Trek 800 model bicycle with no prior experience. After finishing, your bicycle will be ready to ride!

Thanks for providing these instructions. But I think the most difficult step (getting the tire off the rim) should be explained in more detail.
