  1. I just tried repairing a puncture and applied the glue, waited then applied the patch, but it would bit stick! So i cleaned the area again and applied fresh glue then put the patch on straight away and it stuck this time. It's been 40 years since I last repaired a puncture

  2. why bother taking the clear plastic off at all?

  3. Wtf do they get a guy who s English is hard to understand 😂😂

  4. Thank you for another great video thats helping a cycling n00b like me!

  5. Good job so you have to wait for glue 5 minutes?

  6. Thank you so much, this helps me a lot.. Someone puncture my bike tire and I don't know what to do.. it's my first time experiencing puncture within 5 months of cycling

  7. I’m enjoying the bike so far https://www.youtube.com/post/UgkxMesz3KOGEmwmvyKQfLfrRSUXLFzfVHZA My only real complaints are the brakes and the pedals. I feel like a bike designed for bigger people should have much larger pedals and more heavy duty brakes. I’ve only gotten two really good rides out of it, minimal downhill action, and the brakes feel like they’re already going out. A larger person has more momentum, so I think this wasn’t thought through very well. Also, I wear size 13-14 wide shoes. My feet cramp up on these pedals that are clearly made for smaller feet. Since I’m not a pro rider (and I don’t think many are who purchase this bike) I don’t think that the straps on the pedal are necessary at all. None of this takes away from the enjoyment I get from riding, however. I’ll just head to a bike shop to improve on a few things.

  8. Thanks, there was no instructions with my repair kit and I hadn't done one since I was a kid. I'm trying to repair a wheelbarrow tyre but it's got a decent size cut in it so I'm not confident the repair will hold.. Still, I thought it'd be worth a try at least.

  9. Thanks for the video, im 29 and this helped

  10. 👍👍👍👍💯💯💯💯

  11. My questios is after patching inner tube there is still a hole in a tyre itself.Does it make sense to patch it as well from the inside.It seems like the patch on tube is located a bit aside and a new puncture on inner tube is waiting to happen,as I can see inner tube through that hole in the tyre

  12. What about the tire itself? What do I do about the hole in the tire? Do I just leave it as is after removing the culprit?

  13. My puncture was on the line of inner tube, had to put a triple patch because the air was escaping from both sides otherwise good job and excellent video, thankyou

    Ps I use soap liquid to put the tyre back on (this requires brut force lol) as I’m cautious I may damaged the tube 😁

  14. extra tip: buy a good quality kit, cheap chinese patches have many problems

  15. thank you, took 3 hours but i fixed it

  16. Thanks for helping me I’m young and my dad is in prison this helps a lot ❤❤❤

  17. I’ve never sanded the area ever. I’ve always wondered what the sand paper was for lol I’m such a dummy how ever my repairs pinchers have always been fine

  18. Rode to my local gas station after running over a thorn on my commute back home. Had to walk the bike back home. Literally the second time I’ve ridden the thing.
