What is the purpose of a rim lock?
A beadlock or bead lock is a mechanical device that secures the bead of a tire to the wheel of a vehicle. Tires and wheels are designed so that when the tire is inflated, the tire pressure pushes the bead of the tire against the inside of the wheel rim so that the tire stays on the wheel and the two rotate together.

How much air do you put in kids bike tires?
Overall, it should look like this: 35 – 45 psi / 2.4 – 3.1 bar. Here, 35psi (or 2.4bar) is the lowest pressure the tires should be allowed to run at, with 45psi (3.1bar) being the highest. Inflating the tire is as simple as connecting the pump to the wheel’s valve and pumping away.
How do I know what inner tube to buy?
The best way to check what size inner tube you need is to look on the sidewall of your tyre. Tyre manufacturers print the size on the sidewalls, so look out for numbers such as ‘700x23c’ for a road bike, or ’26×1. 75′ which is for mountain bikes.
