In this post I will show you step by step on how to change the Inner Tube of my Racer Bicycle.

I bought this Racer Bicycle 5 years ago (2017) in a Secondary Bike Market for S$ 400. For quite some time it had been heavily used, as during that period I was actively participating in meetup Cycling, Bike Racing activities etc. 2019 Corvid Pandemic Struck, since then it had been Laying collecting dust in my Store Room.

After laying idle in the store room for a period of 2 to 3 years, things started to break down. The Gear is dislocated, things getting rusty, and most importantly the tire went flat. It took me half a day to readjust the gear and oil it. I had also fixed loosened joints and screws. The Last Fix I got to make is to change the Inner Tube of both Tires.
