Fixing a puncture on a bike can appear to be a daunting task at first, but it’s a simple process that will have you back on your bike in no time.
Firstly, we show you how to locate the puncture in the inner tube by checking the inside of the tyre for the problem and then -partially re-inflating the tube-.
Secondly, we demonstrate how to fix the hole using either traditional glue and patches or self adhesive stickers.
Finally it’s just a case of replacing the tube and re-inflating the tyre.
The Global Cycling Network puts you in the centre of the action: from the iconic summit of the Stelvio to the epic trails of Fort William, Scotland, everywhere there is pavé or dirt, world-class racing, and pro riders, we will be there bringing you all the action, essential analysis and unparalleled access every week, every month, and every year.

just take the wheel off
holy crap how tall is he cuz I can't imagine some one with a saddle that high and can still put their leg over.
Hi. Most often the puncture repair kits come with a vulcanizing solution, not necessarily glue. If you have applied the solution and put pressure on the patch and flatten the red outer part of the patch, you are actually vulcanizing the patch with the rubber of the inner tube. Vulcanization is a chemical process for converting natural rubber or related polymers into more durable materials by the addition of sulfur or other equivalent curatives or accelerators. Vulcanized materials are less sticky and have superior mechanical properties. Although the curing of rubber has been carried out since prehistoric times, the modern process of vulcanization, named after Vulcan, the Roman god of fire, was not developed until the 19th century, mainly by …..Charles Goodyear. Repairing an inner tube by the road side can be done through the cold vulcanization. You will feel a little bit of heat when the process starts.
There are patches on the market where the small cellophane covers peals off from the middle. These are more convenient then pealing it off the edges first.
Just bought a Giant Propel Advanced Pro 2 bike here in Cambodia and bought a Giant self adhesive inner tube repair set in the shop. Well… it does not work. Vulcanization is still the most reliable way of repairing an inner tube for me.
i always took the whole tube away from the tire, but leaving the valve in is a great idea. thanks fellas!
when i was 8 years old my tubes allways had atleast 5 of those xD
How much is that helmet
Good teaching particularly not fully removing the inner tube to help in localizing the prick in the tire.
However you are indirectly teaching removing the "lawyer tabs" on front forks an unsafe practice.
Redundancy in keeping your front wheel is a good idea .
15 degrees C, or 50? :))
What size are those patches?
if i do not have a quick release
Really clear and helpful video. Thanks
Would have been more useful to do the back wheel.
That's very long to do :/
Could you please do a video on the correct way to use CO2 inflators and cartridges ? I have no experience with them, but the idea of carrying a small inflator and spare cartridges in my saddle bag / jersey pocket is more appealing than attaching a mini pump to my frame. Cheers.
not too sure if these patches last, the last time i used these the tube burst at slightly over 100 psi
15 degrees celcius is actually not hot at all by my standard (probably because I live in Indonesia where it can reach 35 degrees)
Nice dotty helmet. Mind telling us the make and reference? probably reviewing it?
Recommend not to use finger but the end of the glue tube, it's much less messy and on my tube glue it says that it contains a carcinogenic material.
Hi, a few months back i bought a sort of aerosol puncture spray that you attached to the valve and sprayed in not only would it repair the Tyre and inflate it, would it be ,"wise" to use on a road bike. Thanks.
Flat tire? ERW high speed airless continues to improve. Our 700c is undergoing USOC testing. A full composite version is very near complete. The tire industry is in denial. They gave up too soon. Oh that's right…"We own all the patents".
even a kid knows how to do that cmon
When you tell the viewer to " click here for such and such ", there's never any buttons for me to actually click. Is there some setting i need to turn on to see and click these buttons?
a heat wave in Canada is three or more consecutive days with temperatures above 32°C or 89.6°F
After this is done do we need to change the inner tube when we get home, or can we continue with the same inner tube that we fixed ?
Front brake on right-hand lever? Is that "commuter" bike?
another tip: Put the sticker on the sidewall of your tire above the valve stem, so even if you pull the tire off, you'll know where the puncture is
