Check the Placement of a Bike Inner Tube

Edited by Thor, Crystal, Eng

Hello and welcome to VisiHow. Today I'm going to show you how to check if a tire inner tube has been replaced properly. We need to check if everything is OK and that the inner tube has not been trapped underneath the tire, which would cause problems when the inner tube is inflated. If the inner tube is caught than it may cause tearing or another puncture.

    The best way to check is to take the tire and push the tire inwards so that you can see the yellow safety tape
    If you can only see tape when you rotate the wheel, then you can see that the inner tube has not been caught any where between the rim and the tire. Take the wheel all the way around to check, then turn it around and look at the other side. This is very important to do and something that some people forget. Make sure every time you replace an inner tube or take off a tire that you do this check.
