Since I started riding a few years ago, I’ve been pretty lucky with flats—maybe having to fix two a year. This year however…  I’ve had FOUR flats—on TWO different sets of wheels!

On the upside, the frequent flats have allowed me to refine my flat-changing skills, which, frankly, were lacking.

If you also struggle to change flats, don’t let that stop you from riding. Practice at home using this step-by-step instructional video from Liv/giant so you’re prepared when the bad-luck bike fairy pays you a visit.
