Sometimes you will get flat tires and you do need to deal with them. This one is definitely flat, so we are going to figure out what the problem is.
Push the tire off near the valve stem, because it's a lot easier to do there. You don't actually have to pull both sides off. You can leave one side on. I am just going to check and make sure the rim strip is okay, which it is. Always feel around inside of the tire casing. What you are feeling for is any kind of thorns sticking through that might be responsible for why this tire doesn't hold air.
We are going to put a little pressure in. Here it is. It's even on the rim side, that's kind of weird. Go ahead and mark it, and I will be able to find it again.
So now that you found it, you need to clean this surface up so that the glue will stick, and roughen it up, and here is your patch. This glue very often is dry by the time you get around to using it, but let's see, it looks fine. Make sure it's bigger than the size of the patch you are putting on.
So you let this dry for five minutes or so till it stops being shiny and all guey. You can also get this bulk sizes cement for patching tires. I found that actually plain old rubber cement works pretty well with these things. So now it's all uniformly dull color. Patch on.
I am going to go ahead and blow it up, hold the tire, tube in. This can inflate over the air compressor because its way easier to do, but you know how to use a pump. Okay. We are on the road again.
