Find out how to change a bike tire! Click here to subscribe to GCN: Changing a bike tyre is one of the things that all cyclists should know how to do. It's certainly a job that warrants learning. Depending on your wheel, you may need a 15mm wrench to remove it. Once you've done this, you can move on to the tyre itself. Start by using one or two tyre levers, if the tyre is really tight, though, you may need to use a third one. As well as the tyre levers, you'll also need a pump, the tyre that you're changing too, and possibly a new inner tube. Are there any other mechanical jobs that you're struggling with? Let us know down in the comments and we'll see what we can do!
