Bike Tire Repair (Regular Wheel Flat Fix)
Service Price: $15
A flat tire is the most common ailment to electric bicycle owners while riding around. These flat tires can be caused by anything from thorns (like goatheads), glass, nails, or even just not being properly inflated during a ride. Electric Bicycles in particular are slightly more prone to flat tires as they have a lot of added weight from the ebike motor and ebike battery. When you drop off your ebike for a flat tire repair, we repair the flat tire and figure out whatever caused the flat tire, to make sure another flat does not occur from the same issue.
For the repair, we would remove the tire and the old tube from your electric bicycle. Once the bike tire and tube are off of the wheel, we would inspect the tube and tire to check what caused the flat. If it was a puncture like from a thorn, we would thoroughly inspect the outer and inner sections of the tire to make sure nothing else is poking through that could damage the bike tube. If it was a puncture from the underside of the tube (the side touching the inside of the wheel), we would thoroughly inspect the internal rim of the ebike wheel to find what caused the flat. After the source of the flat tire has been identified and solved, we would then go about installing a fresh, new bicycle tube.
After the tire and tube are installed, we then inflate your ebike tire to the proper PSI, which is extra important to have as ebikes have increased weight, so we want to make sure the bicycle tire has enough pressure to support the rider and the weight of the ebike motor and ebike battery. After you take your ebike home, it is important to always make sure your ebike tires are inflated to the proper PSI, as this is one of the best ways to prevent future flat tires.
