I have never changed a bike tube/tire before, and I’m having some trouble in the process. I wanted to replace my rear bike tube, as it had a hole in it. I have Kylin Brand tires, 26x1.95, and have not ridden the bike in years.
The old bike tube states its measurements as 26x2.0-2.4. And I bought a new Kenda bike tube with measurements 26x1.9/2.125.
When inserting the bike tube on the rim, I try to inflate it with the tire, and it creates a gap between the rim and the tire. When looking at the tire, you can clearly see the tube in between the rim and the tire, and the lip of the tire does not touch the rim. This is also at a very minimum PSI, around 5-10.
I just don’t know what I am doing wrong. I am not sure if it’s an issue with the bike tube sizing, or my old tire. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
