How to Fix a Flat Tyre

By Annette 3 years agoNo Comments

get ready and goRideBike terms are a bit of a killer and when it comes to how to fix a flat tyre we have a really good example of confusing language being used.  Because, in most cases, it’s not actually a flat tyre but a flat tube you are dealing with – it’s the tube inside the tyre that holds the air.  You can get away with small holes/cuts in your tyre as long as the tube is not affected.  See Bike Parts – The Tyre for more info on this part of your bike.
