How to Remove Your Bicycle Tire and Tube Using Bike Tire Levers

There are five steps to taking off your bicycle tire and rim: Turn the bike upside down, let the air out, release brake shoes, remove the wheel, and remove the tire. We made this video to help you learn how to use a set of bicycle tire levers to safely remove your tire and tube from your rear wheel.

NOTE: If you are going to try using a screwdriver instead you could easily pop your tube or damage your rear wheel rim. Before you can take your tire off you need to let the pressure out of it. Use a toothpick or end of a nail to push down on the valve stem.
