Sounds like you have a spoke poking through, or causing a lump, in the rim tape. Or there is damage to the rim tape or some other thing stuck to the rim tape or rim. If you can't see of feel anything give the wheel a wash and scrub the rim. Hope this helps Mark

If you didn't already, you need to clear the inside of the tire of whatever debris is causing the flat, before replacing the tube. From your description, it sounds like the culprit that is causing the problem hasn't been cleared from the inside of the tire, so you may continue to get flats over and over. At this point, I'd replace the tube at least, and ...

This puncture made from outside - the glass isn't inside the tube, but did you get it out of the tire? Is your tire intact? Did you hear the tube blowing up? It looks like your tire have something that punctures the tube. It maybe a glass in it, or metal hoop that inside tire bead came out, or the tire sniped in some place. As every time when you install the ...

It looks like a glass cut to me. It is common for glass to lurk in the tire case, so this is unusual. Take the tire and tube off completely and inspect the inside of the rim and the tire carefully. If you can't see anything, run your fingers around the rim and the tire. If you still haven't found anything, take the rim tape off and check it and the rim ...

Alternative to the other suggestions, repair tube while the wheel is in place, with the break and all. You take one side of the tire off the wheel, pull the tube out and patch it, replace the tube (a bit of air in it makes it easier) and put the tire back. This is a Dutch language video but with very clear pictures, front wheel but rear wheel works the ...

You may choose to simply file it down. If there is enough threading on the spoke that the nipple still has purchase despite the penetration, you can safely remove the excess by snipping it, then filing the resulting sharp edge. If you do this, you may need to be careful later when trueing the wheel. Tightening the spoke could either cause the issue to ...

I'd cut it without a special tool: fully unthread the nipple remove spoke from the rim (no need to remove it from hub) fully thread the nipple as far as it can go cut 5mm of spoke thread with a regular cutting plier fully unthread the nipple. mushed threads (from the cheap pliers) will be fixed that way insert spoke into rim thread nipple as much as ...

Based on your fender/brake setup I think you might benefit from this: http://problemsolversbike.com/products/travel_agents The barrel adjuster (on the silver model) on the top could be tuned to do this with out tools. So that instead of needing a 5mm to release the tension on the cable you could screw in the adjuster and bam, instant slack. Just a ...

A shimano noodle can help you. It have a "shortcut" to get it out of the holder.

A properly tuned V-Brake system, assembled with proper, compatible components should let you disengage the quick release by just pressing the brake arms together with one hand and wiggling the noodle out. But if it is really necesary to have the cable so tight for the brakes to work, there may be some mismatch in the components or simply bad design. Here ...

Grip the arms together using your hand and you should be able to disengage the noodle from the quick release.

Yeah. Use the quick release. If you push the brake arms together, you should be able to pull the noodle out of the noodle holder (you may need to wiggle it a bit out). Then the arms will be wide enough to remove the wheel. Alternatively, you can de-inflate the tire, remove it and then re-inflate it after re-installation.
