Flats. Just when you least expect them, or in the least convenient location, you get one (or multiple if you're really unlucky). For someone who may have never changed a flat, it can seem daunting to pull your wheel off your bike and dismantle it all (nevertheless on a trail or in some remote location) but I'm here to reassure you it much easier than you might think! Not only does learning skills like learning how to change your flat make you a life-saver for your friends who might not know how to ( and in that case, show them this video!) but it will also have you riding with more confidence knowing you can tackle the issue with confidence. Enjoy!
Want to #JoinTheRusch for your own adventure? My team and I have planned ways for riders and adventurers of all levels to stretch your limits, challenge yourself, and see parts of the world that will amaze and inspire you. Celebrate my hometown with a Labor Day Weekend ride of 20, 62.5, or 100 miles at Rebecca's Private Idaho, or travel with us this December to experience the epic trails, impactful history, and beautiful people of Laos on the MTB-LAO trip.
