You will be taking the wheel off of your bike, removing the tire from the wheel, and patching the hole.

Notes:

  • Make sure that the wheel is fully deflated throughout the process, except for finding the hole.
  • When applying the rubber cement to the hole, the thinner the layer the better, for faster drying.

Insert the third lever a few more inches along. Take out the second lever and insert it it a few inches past the third. Work along the rim until the tire pops off.
