Strengths:    Price and lightweight

Weaknesses:    Valve stem

Bottom Line:   
After about 3 km of riding, the valve stem broke off. Well, I usually run 45psi. If you ride in hard surfaces whith this pressure in tubes, don´t use this ones. I´ll give 2 chilis because it could be good for guys that use lower pressure in it.

Strengths:    Light

Weaknesses:    Blows quite easily

Bottom Line:   
OK to be used on fronts. Rear blows easily(unless you really pump it up). Micelin(standards) on rear. Other than taht, this is a really good and high quality tube for not too much.

Bottom Line:   

I've tried all the glueless patches, there is only one original glueless patch and it is still the best regardless of what other idiots say! SPEEDPATCH rules!!! They invented it and others copied it. Ask Missy, Tinker, Ned, Johnny T. 5 Star all the way.

Bottom Line:   


I bought a bunch of these tubes from Nashbar about a year ago. Within 3 months my flat tire repair time improved 3 fold. What does it take to get this good? Practice, Practice, Practice! Try the Torelli's. I've had much better luck with them (3 months - no flats).

Bottom Line:   


I bought these tubes last year. The idea was, because they are so lightweight, I make a small slit in the tube and then put in a couple ounces of green slime, then use a rema patch to fix the hole. (If you buy a presta slime tube it's got 8 ounces of the stuff in it already). So I get the beneifts of the slime without the weight. Been over a year and absolutly no flats! Try it sometime, it actually works! Just make sure you use glue-on rema patches, and not those crappy instant peices of junk (speedpatch, etc...)

Bottom Line:   


These are the best butyl tubes I have ever used. They only weigh 115 grams. I have never had a flat. They do not loose air
like latex. They cost only 4.99 at Bike Nashbar. What more could you ask for???

Running lightweight tubes...recommendations?

Since day 1 of ownership, I've been running the relatively heavy Surly fat bike tubes. While changing a tire on a buddy's Fatback, I noticed he was running a standard 26" "lightweight" tube. When asked, he said that is the way his (complete) bike was shipped to him from the factory. He's never ha ... Read More »

lightweight tubes

can't find any existing threads to scour, so i'm putting it out there. in the quest for lighter rolling weight, does anyone run super light tubes? the Schwalbe 19a tubes seem pretty dam light, but i wonder if there is limitations in putting them in 2.4 tires. clearly you would run a bit higher pr ...

Lightweight tubes

Looking at picking up some light tubes, don't really have any experience with any. Was looking at: 1. Continental MTB Supersonic (Claimed 100g) 2. Maxxis Fly Weight Tubes (Claimed 105g) 3. Maxxis UltraLight Tubes (Claimed 125g) Any thoughts?Read More »

Edge Rims, lightweight tubes

Got a pair of Edge AM rims on the way and will be running them tubed for the rest of the winter before I mess w/ghetto tubeless. What's the lightest butyl tube with a long valve stem (44mm, I believe...)? I assume a 26" tube might be the way to go, but I haven't used tubes for the past four or ... Read More »
