What is the thing inside bike TYRE?
The inner tube is a soft, pliable rubber donut with an air valve on its underbelly that allows air in and out. Note that a filled inner tube can appear larger than the tire. This is perfectly normal. When encased inside the tire, the tube will not exceed the tire’s dimensions.
How do I protect my bike tires?
Add Extra Protection Both rim strips and tire liners guard the sides of the tube from its neighbors, the rim and the tire. As the name implies, rim strips protect the tube from the holes in the rim, and the ends of the spokes. These are as simple as a rubber strip or a cloth tape and fit inside the rim bed.

Why does a bike tire keep going flat?
