    Tubular flatted after 2 days

    I just got the bike and i've only ridden it twice one time heavy riding and i just got a flat, i wasnt even sure if there was a flat on my ride home, i didnt even feel it. but in the morning the rear wheel is deflated. The only possible reasoning is a puncture. well i have no idea how to fix a tubular so i need to remove the rear wheel however i cant realyl take it off. How do i derail chain from the cog? Iro made the chain tension pretty tight

    any help?

    Just push the wheel forward so the chain can come off the cog, then take the wheel off. To patch a tubular, you have to cut the stitching in the tire and pull the tube out a few inches. Patch it, put it back in and sew it up.

    You got tubulars from IRO? I didn't even know that was an option.

    If the wheel won't go any further forward you'll have to walk the chain off of the chainring. Just push it off to the side while cranking forward, making sure not to lose a finger in the process.

    Why would you opt for tubulars if you cant even get your wheel off your bike, let alone fix a flat tire?

    Yes. don't be cheap and use a spoon either. you can get some cheap tire levers from any lbs.

    try a tire lever for all your prying needs

    edit: read this or search for changing a bike tire and find something that makes sense to you

    It depends, if you are just patching the tube than yes, if you are replacing it, no.

    thanks, i hope the wheel is still okay, i didnt even know i had a flat until the morning so it's possible for me to be riding with one (not sober)

    it looks true but is there other ways to tell a wheel if its in shape?

    you are doomed.
