    Nice how to change a (rear) flat video.

    Just found this video. It's 10 minutes versus the usual 4 or so minute videos on Youtube. Thought it might be useful for someone.

    Wow! I changed my first tire on my sister's road bike this morning after watching this video. The video gives some great advice, but these guys are a lot stronger and make the whole tire removal process look easy. It is not easy! I struggled for awhile getting the tire lever under the bead. It really is tight. I tried it with no tire lever and that isn't going to happen. I am just not strong enough in the hands. The last portion of the tire is also difficult to get over the rim. It took me awhile, but I did it.

    The video was very helpful for me. Gave me little tips to try when I was struggling and luckily I watched it closely because it was a back tire and I had to figure out how to get the chain back on the tire.

    Thanks for the video!

    Some tire levers are much better than others.
    The trick to getting the last bit of tire back in, is to use the palm of both hands, pushing back and forth on both sides, when you have the tire balanced against your legs, or on your lap if you are sitting.

    What makes a "good" lever vs. a bad lever. Thanks for the helpful hints. Next time I will try that. I about split a seam trying to get that last section of tire back on.
