I don't know how to change a tire. on my car or on my bike. and so far i have gotten through life ok with this secret confession. Thanks to triple A and some good luck... But - it's finally catching up with me. I got my new bike shoes this week. Used them on the trainer last night to try and get a feel for them before i take them on the road and break my neck. Well i decided that maybe it would be nice to get out on sunday (weather depending) and go for a nice ride. well i realize that i always ride with steve - (and he can't ride with me this sunday) which made me realize that I don't know how to change a flat tire... which made me realize that going for a ride on my own would not be a good idea - b/c what do you do if you are alone with a flat and don't know how to change it? I've decided that this situation is ridiculous and I need to learn how to change a tire asap!

LOL. I'll bring my tools just in case for Sunday ;)

I can show you how to do it. I've led a few sessions for the Cleveland Triathlon Club in the last couple of years. I do admit to still having problems changing my race wheels though.

just take the old one off and throw on the new one : ) I watched someone change a tire once and think I could manage, but it would probably take forever!
