edited September 2011 in Legacy Products
Ok can some one please make a video on how to change the tube on the path 8. I'd love to go to all 3 tires having slime tubes Had to change one tube again and changed the other just becuase I had a second slime tube laying around.

    The instructions in this post will work for a Trike with the internal hub. viewtopic.php?f=29&t=476
  • :) Changed both fronts last night have the universal valve on my tubes in other the ShraderThat's not the problem the one I'm trying to change God forbid is changing the back tire with the internal hub. I know I have to use a 15 mm wrench have a set of rachets Lost my wrenches Want to go slime tubs on all 3 or the thorn resistant tubes. With the chain and everything back there don't want to mess that up.
  • You should check out our linear tubes:

    You don't have to take off the wheel to put this on.

  • Cool thanks for the heads up.
  • Once again problem with the Bicycle stop they sell TTs and don't have the Linear tubes come on how can people sell your products and not have the stuff the riders need on hand I mean come on.
  • You would have to take the rear wheel off to remove the old tube first.

    Food for thought? Going to a more spendy tire might well lessen the risk of fl@ts for you. Something like a Marathon Plus, or the like is very popular over on BROL for those worried about the risk.

    I was thinking about the linear tube yesterday, and came to the same conclusion, unless you just cut the old tube in half to remove it. Then the other issue, is , do you want the linear tube to be your permanent tube? I think I would prefer a normal tube in my tire, rather than a tube with a seam in the middle. Something to think about. It really isn't that hard to change the rear tube.
  • I agree Bob. Keep in mind I have neither seen or used one, but my concern would be possibly a bumpy ride or a lump or the like from it (where the two ends meet?). Or at least the wheel would not be balanced? I don't know...

    I simply carry a 15mm combo wench, and since I like my rear fender, I cut it shorter, so I can pull the rear wheel out without messing with the fender. I still get all the benefits of the fender, but now it won't add to the hassle of removing the wheel.

  • As a collector and restorer of vintage English 3 speed bicycles, I can tell you that the most difficult aspect of changing the rear tube is doing it for the first time. Overcome that fear, and it's quite simple. Every 3 speed system has a means to disconnect the shift cable from the hub without disturbing the gear settings. Once the cable is disconnected, you simply remove the wheel, take out the damaged tube, install the new tube and reverse the process.
  • Yup - I have changed both tire and tube on mine. But, the stock rear fender on a Rover must be removed to allow the wheel to be removed.

  • It happened last night the dang back tire went flat. Don't know what the fine fine people of springfield threw in the street was coming home then next thing I knew had a darn flat had to change the tube the hard way. So now I'm without a front idler. Oh and have to wait until thursday to get the darn thing fixed I asked for a video to show how to change that tube so I could avoid this problem because I knew it was going to happen sooner or later or when I was going to put a slime tube on the back tire so now here I is. :shock: :shock: :shock:
  • :( My problem is got the chain kinked and had to take that off as well now I can't get a straight answer or I'm just so furstrated that I can't see straight. Wish I had someone to help and show me how to do this without breaking crap. Wish i could get people to understand. i'm blind and have trouble seeing things like how to put the chain back on and how to work on my trikie. Right now there ain't a soul open in Springfield so I can get help with my trike. I'm totally frustrated.
  • I do wish we lived closer together so I could help you with this. I do know how you are feeling. I see it with my Mom in-law often. I thank God this is a issue I do not have. I'm pulling for you!

    I do not remember if you are using the stock tire or not? I'd highly suggest upgrading the rear tire into the Marathon or Big Apple line - they seem to have less fl@ts.

  • Gary my problem is I got the chain twisted and all that good junk now it's off the trike. Kinda don't want to mess the trike up anymore than I already did. As I can't afford to replace anything that gets messed up.
