Introduction: How to Fix a Detached Valve From the Inner Tube
For the begining, I am sory for my bad english. So, let's start the instructable.
One day I ride my mountain bike in the middle of nowhere where I made a flat tire. No problem I said, I have my pump, patches and glue, so I started fixing. When I opened the tire I saw that the valve was broken. Civilization had to be done about 25-30 km, the phone signal was missing so after a swearing series I started looking for solutions. After 15 minutes of thinking, bike and nature study for solutions, I foud to the following solution:
I took off two washers from the brake, 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 tire on the wheel. If you like this instructable, please vote! Now, let's see all 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 SUCCES. I could continue my ride. After about 5 days my wheel was deflated. I change the tube and I made this Instructable.
If I had some wider washers, my wheel wouldn't deflated and I wouldn't needed to remove the tube again.
