[DIY Classroom]Don’t be afraid of a puncture!Simply learn how to repair a tire


Although you always pay attention to whether there are nails and glass fragments on the road when you ride a bicycle, it is easy to encounter a nail on the tire tread in daily life.

If it is a tire with an inner tube, there is usually only a problem of air leakage, but if it is a tubeless tire, it will not cause gas leakage due to nails or other things stuck to the tire.

To solve this frightening situation, the most reliable is the portable tire repair kit. As long as you carry a tire repair kit, you can continue to travel even if you encounter a flat tire during the Long March.


Even if a tubeless tire has a flat tire, it is difficult to detect?


If unfortunately you find a nail or other foreign object on the tread, if you can’t find a place to repair it or if you don’t have a repair tool at hand, it is more recommended not to remove the nail or debris immediately because the foreign object punctures the tire. The above words can still prevent gas leakage, so it is recommended to move to a place where the tire can be repaired first.

Although checking tire pressure and tire wear is the basic task of tire maintenance, even if you do these steps, you usually cannot avoid tire blowouts.

When riding on a wide road, it is always unavoidable that the tires get stuck in small nails or iron pieces, so there should be many riders who can only look at the nails on the tires silently, and can’t think of when they are actually Stuck in the tire.

When a motorcycle tire blows out, it often happens that “the foreign body is run over by the front wheel and then jumps up, and then the foreign body pierces into the rear wheel.” Just like when I was a child riding a bicycle, it seems that the rear wheel is easier A puncture occurred.

Regardless of whether it is the front wheel or the rear wheel, as long as the tire gets stuck in a foreign object, the air inside will run away. However, the common inner tube tires with steel spoke wheels and the more common tubeless tires with alloy wheels have different ways of leaking gas from the two tires.

If it is a tire with an inner tube, because the inner tube and the tire have a double-layer structure, as long as the foreign body is pierced and the gap between the inner tube and the tire leaks, the gas will leak out in a short time; relatively speaking, no The inner tube tire is maintained by the air pressure of the tire and the inner surface of the wheel frame.

Therefore, even if a tubeless tire is pierced by a nail, a hole will not appear as long as the nail is not pulled out. Therefore, the rate of gas leakage inside the tire will be much slower than that of a tire with a tube. Therefore, there are often some dull riders who continue to ride without seeing the tires being punctured.


・If a nail is pierced, a tubeless tire will leak air in a short time, but a tubeless tire will not leak air.
・Regularly check whether there is any foreign matter stuck in the tread of the tubeless tire.

Even if a foreign object gets stuck on a tubeless tire, it is rare that the gas will leak out in one breath, but it is not a good thing to continue riding after being stuck.

Because tires often deform continuously while they are traveling, foreign objects that were originally stuck on the tires may fall suddenly and cause the tires to start to leak. In addition, the continuous friction between the road surface and foreign objects will also cause the holes in the tires to become larger and larger, which may cause danger.

In the case of tubeless tires, as mentioned above, because there is no inner tube inside the tire, as long as the foreign objects stuck to the tire are removed and the hole is repaired, the air will not continue. Leak out.
