Introduzione

If the road ahead seems to be getting a little rough, it might be time to think about tire replacement! Mountain bike tires take a lot of abuse—it's not the same as street riding, where a patched tire isn’t quite as risky as it could be for you, riding around out in the boondocks. You’re better off replacing tires with large tears or holes close to the valve stem, where a tire patch isn’t a suitable repair option. But whether you’re replacing a blown-out tire tube, a faulty valve stem, or the tire itself—this guide shows you how to do it yourself on a Supercycle SC1800 bike tire, taking you step-by-step through the easy-to-follow procedure for separating a tire from the rim, transferring a tire tube into the new tire, and placing it back on the rim. When you’re back on the road, remember to be eco-friendly—always check the guidelines at your local landfill before discarding used tires!
