How do you deflate an inner tube?
To deflate inner tube, remove the rubber end cap by hand. Use a tire valve tool to loosen and remove the inner valve stem core. Remove the tube from cover, fold and curl as necessary to remove excess air. Once the inner tube is deflated, reinstall the valve stem core and tighten securely using the tire valve tool.
Can I change an inner tube without taking the wheel off?
A flat tire may be repaired either by replacing the inner tube or by patching it. To replace the inner tube, you must remove the wheel from the bicycle. But to patch the inner tube, you need only expose it, without removing the wheel. A wheel with axle nuts is harder to remove and replace than one with a quick release.
How do you deflate a self sealing tube?
What’s the best way to inflate/deflate a Slime treated tire? Whenever possible, we recommend rotating the tire so the valve stem is in the upper half of the tire, away from any sealant that may pool at the base of the tire. Then simply inflate/deflate as you normally would.
