This note is published at the request of SOB member Julie Jacobs
it has come to my attention that some SOBs do not know how to change a flat tire. I do and will be glad to share what I know. Email me JulieJacobs2303@yahoo.com and we’ll set a date. if we get very many people responding, we’ll need a place indoors with lots of room. I’ll need help finding that. The supplies needed obviously are your bicycle, (not just a wheel), a tube of the size that your bicycle uses, a pump, patch kit. If you want your hands to stay clean then bring tight fitting rubber gloves. No tubeless tires! A willingness to “man-handle” your bike and tire are required. Broken fingernails, greasy hands, used muscles, are all to be expected. Haha.
Just let me know and I’ll be glad to help with this.
