Thanks for this how-to, Bear. I just took my wheel off to have the tire replaced, and with your instructions it only took about 10 minutes. It also helped knowing which tools I needed, because I didn't previously have everything I needed.

Take two tubes.. one for the front and back.

No idea on a compact air pump.

Sorry but you are taking the long way around changing that flat.... Not to step on any toes but in the last two months not to mention last year I have had four rear wheel flats. the first one I took to dealer to replace tube and tire, last three I have fixed myself. Simple way to do it...
Jack bike up using bike jack... Check
then remove brake rod , undo brake hub brace, remove cotter pin, remove nut, remove pretty chrome cover from left side, I just tap the axle bolt out, wiggle wheel out of finnale drive and pull wheel out from under bike, place wheel on two 4X4 piece of wood, stand on tire as close to Bead as possible, break bead, use two tire irons to pry tire from wheel, remover nut from value stem pull value stem out and tube out of tire Patch hole replace in revearse<(sorry if misspelled) order.
to remove and replace all together about 45min. time.
I have not pinched the tube or messed up my rim while doing any of my own work.
I just wish I could find the Magnet that is in the wheel that keeps attracting all of the road screws and nails......

this shows how to remove wheel and are damn good instructions and pics, but does not show how to remove tire . the tire has very stiff sidewalls and two pow's ( porkers on wheels) standing on it could not break the bead. we had to use a 2x4 wedged under work bench and across tire. how is this done on the road ?

i may be wrong, i have been wrong before.

I had a hellve time breaking the bead, finally used a 2x 4 8 ft long leveraged under the car and a additional board between the tire and the 2 x 4..that sucker just didn't want to break lose...got the new tube in, blew it up and then forgot to line up the wheel weights, so had to do over again.......
Next bike will have tubless tires

Once again, this site has rendered great instructions on the maintenance of my bike! I wasn't as quick as those who did it in 10 mins, I did it in about 30 mins give or take.

Saves me a bundle in getting my tube replaced...a tube that is less than a month old. Seems I got screwed...well, I ran over a screw anyway.

You did what? To who? For how many cookies?

I'm having trouble removing the bolt on the driveshaft side. The one one that require the 9mm allen. It seems like it's stripped. Any advice on removing it and where can I get a replacement? Also, I'm putting new tires on my bike, what is the rule of thumb on replacing the tube?
