Mountain Bike Maintenance : Remove Tires from Mountain Bikes


Knowing how to change a tire is a pretty useful
trick and tip when it comes to being a mountain biker. Because, I mean, changing tires for
preference is the same as changing tires when you get a flat. So, it’s always good to be
prepared and know how to do this. With this specific tire and wheel combination–we see
that we have what’s called a Presta valve. It’s a thinner valve than what you’d find
on a car. And instead of having a valve cap to keep it closed, there’s a little threaded
nut, which, as you can see–the valve is closed, if I push down on it no air comes out. Now I open the valve,
and if I push down on it, air comes out. So I’m going to let all the air out. It takes
a while. Sometimes it helps if I push down on the tire, to just let the air come out
a little bit quicker. You can hear it still coming out. Looks like we’re pretty good.
