Changing a Bicycle Tube and Tire –

Stephan, a mechanic at, demonstrates how to change an bicycle inner tube. The bike he demonstrates on is a single speed beach cruiser bike with a coaster brake. He shows us how to disengage the coaster brake, remove the rear wheel and change the bicycle tube. The procedure is pretty much the same for all bikes except for the removal of the wheel. This can vary based on the rear gearing and brake system.

  2. Thank you! Very clear and easy to follow instructions. This taught me how to do it myself ­čść´╗┐

  3. Ty for posting this. It was very helpful and I successfully changed the back tire of my beach cruiser.´╗┐

  4. I've been putting the the washer on the inside of the dropouts because i assumed the serrated flange nut needed something fixed to hook into.´╗┐

  5. YAY! Thank you so much for posting! I just blew the tube on my new beach cruiser. I've never changed my own tubes. I'm going to now. I really appreciate your post! :D´╗┐

  6. I am sorry, but whoever is recording is really not that good, because they're not even aware of what needs to be seen and I can't even see some of the steps because he is on the wrong side of the tire. Other than that, the explanation was good.´╗┐

  7. i have a kulana moon dog. the rear tube is shot but i have never removed a wheel from a bike that has different speeds can anyone show or tell me how to do this´╗┐

  8. thanks for video!´╗┐

  9. Thank you for posting this I have never changed a bike inner tube before and I was able to replace the inner tubes on both tires from watching this video. Thanks for making it so easy to follow.´╗┐

  10. Thank you for video. I changed the tire on my own with your video. Putting the tire back on over the new tube was a bitch to do!´╗┐

  11. Thanks so much; this video was the one that helped me finish the job. I also replaced some rusty nuts with stainless ones while I was at it.´╗┐

  12. I have 2 beach bikes both with 26×2.125 tires. Why is there a HUGE difference in the physical size.? The one on my old Huffy are balloons but on a China made Murray they are no bigger than 175s or 195s.´╗┐

  13. Great video. My first time replacing a tire on my bike – success!´╗┐

  14. If the tire is flat ALWAYS remove the entire tire. Check the rim strip and run your hand inside the tire to check for a tiny piece of wire etc that caused the flat.´╗┐

  15. I appreciate you taking the time to do this video it helped me so much´╗┐

  16. Thanks so much. ┬áThis walked me step by step through how to change my tube and I have never done it before. ┬áGreat video and very thoroughly explained. ┬á ┬á´╗┐

  17. Thanks buddy :)´╗┐

  18. Good job on this. Helped me out immensely! Thanks´╗┐

  19. I have 3 complements for you, thank you so much for the video, I think you have a pretty mouth and love how you wore your pants like a man. Now for my question what size chain is on the bike. This is the first time I am doing all this and the bike was given to us from moving neighbors and had no chain to compare to.´╗┐

  20. This was an excellent demo especially for someone like myself who is older and not experienced in changing inner tubes. I was really worried about the rear tire because of the coaster brake and chain but it looks as though this won't be a problem. Camera work on this video was TERRIBLE!´╗┐

  21. thanks for this! i used the back of a spoon to get it out. ´╗┐

  22. Any video on how to install a rear break on a single speed beach cruiser?´╗┐

  23. the only thing i knew about changing tires is you have to drink a beer while doing it – thats what my dad taught me – you taught me the rest! my cruiser looks fucking fresh thanks to this video – thank you!!´╗┐
