Fix a detached valve from the inner tube of a bike with this step by step guide. One day I ride my mountain bike in the middle of nowhere where I made a flat tyre. No problem I said, I have my pump, patches and glue, so I started fixing. When I opened the tyre I saw that the valve was broken. Civilization was probably 25-30 km away, there was no phone signal so after some swearing I started to look for solutions. After 15 minutes of thinking, I thought of the following solution:

I took off two washers from the brakes, I put glue on the end of the valve, put one washer on the valve and I stuffed the valve and the washer in the inner tube. I spread glue solution on the outside of the tube, I put the other washer over the tube, then I screwed the nut that holds the valve normally. I mounted the tube and the tyre on the wheel. If you like these instructions, please comment! Now, let’s see all the steps.


I put glue on the end of the valve and put one washer on the valve.


I stuffed the valve and the washer in the inner tube. I put some glue on the washer side in contact with the tube.


I spread glue solution on the outside of the tube, I put the other washer over the tube


I screwed the nut that holds normally the valve.


I mounted the tube and the tire on the wheel, I inflated it, and SUCCESS. I could continue my ride. After about 5 days my wheel was deflated. I changed the tube. If I had some wider washers, my tyre would not have deflated and I wouldn't needed to remove the tube again.
