I was following exactly the instructions above. My opinion: This is a conceptional weakness of A-Bike, nothing else. And a question of quality, of course. :twisted:
We are thinking about throwing it away.

Well, what can I say? I own my A-bike for 2 years that the tyres and tubes are still okay and have never been torn or been punctured. :roll:

I think the following threads may be useful to you. :)

After viewing the "help videos" I found out that the A-Bike chief designer needed about 9 minutes to change the inner tube in the first film. This film has about 1500 views (more than all the others) and that means that this is the BIGGEST problem for all A-Bike users.
That leads me to the question why they don´t use SOLID RUBBER /PU tires??
It would make a big difference to these f...... 90 psi tires they are using now and which are completely away from the needs and a simple handling.
Someone posted this question already before but he didn´t get an answer from these great designers ... :evil: :evil:

Here is a thread talking about installing solid rubber tyres on A-bike:

Here is a thread talking about installing solid rubber tyres


Hi Amuro,
thank you for your help.

Sounds very interesting but it is a pity
that this thread is not ending satisfactory.
It remains completely unclear why the designer is talking about damages:
Compared to these 90 psi tyres solid rubber tyres should make no big difference.

And there is not enough feedback from the other users of solid rubber tyres or
something else. :cry:

P.S.: I posted this comment in the other thread as well.
