Strengths:    Still trying to figure that one out.

Weaknesses:    These things are junk. Don't be fooled by the price or the belief that all basic tubes are created equal.

Bottom Line:   
Bought a 5 pack of these a while back and finally got a chance to try them out when I flatted on the on the trail yesterday. My C02 cartridge blew multiple holes through the seam of the wafer thin rubber at several points all the way around the tube. Safe to say it wasn't a fluke as the exact same thing happened on my second tube. Luckily my bailed me out with his spare.

Strengths:    price

Weaknesses:    These tubes are horrible. 5 tubes, 5 rides, 5 flats. In hindsight i would have paid money not to have ever used them rather than have them completely ruin three rides. Do not buy these tubes.

Bottom Line:   
I wouldn't use them again even if they paid me.

Strengths:    Cheap in cost

Weaknesses:    Cheap

Bottom Line:   
I am a flat trail rider that may include a little bump from time to time. So I don't "push" the tires to a stressful limit. I pedaled about one mile in on the trail and the tube blew-out. Pulled out my handy spare tube (fresh out of the box)and made the change. Got roughly 30lbs in the new tube and it blew-out. Right there on the trail! Didn't have another spare and luckily the walk wasn't too far. Checked the inside of the tire out, and there were no apparent burrs or punctures. I had bought a 5 pack of these tubes and I must say they are not worth it, regardless of their cheap price. The other 3 tubes are on different bikes, and they have had flats. Didn't think much of it until this episode on the trail. They are cheap in price AND they are cheap in quality.

Strengths:    Inexpensive, eco-friendly box

Weaknesses:    I'd rather stuff my tire with dry leaves and rocks, infact I'd have better luck riding on a bare rim.

Bottom Line:   
These tubes are the bottom line.

Strengths:    Light?

Weaknesses:    Everything. I ride a soft compound Kenda Nevegal on the rear so even star thistle will poke through. tubes suck suck suck.

Bottom Line:   
These tubes are a joke. I rode one for 1 day, and punctured it with star thistle. Then with ram heads, they stand no chance. Less than a month later, i went through all 5 tubes. Get thick tires, then use these, or dont use them at all unless you like walking along side your bike.

Strengths:    Cheap

Weaknesses:    They do not last very long at all.

Bottom Line:   
Two of my brothers and I purchased 40 of these tubes along with an order that I made at Pricepoint.com to save on shipping. The logic was that you can never have enough when you ride where cati adorn the trails and, anyway, Tubes are tubes, right? Ha! That is what I thought. Fortunately I have never used my share of the tubes as the ones that came with my bike are holding up great. My brothers, on the other hand, have gone through ALL of their tubes. It is very disappointing to go out for a ride only to have someone walk back to the car because they have a flat. The longest I have seen on of these tubes hold up is for 1 1/2 10 mile rides. These things absolutely suck. This is for both the presta and schrader valve versions as we purchased both. Do not buy these things. I could not believe how fast they were going. I still have 7 for myself and now dont know what to do with them as I dont plan on using them.

Strengths:    Well, it's light.

Weaknesses:    Went through about five tubes in one month. Made every ride miserable.

Bottom Line:   
I wouldn't reccomend these tubes to anybody. No wonder Price Point is selling them so cheap, they can't find anybody to buy them. If your a fan of walking back to your car, then get them.

26 conversion or 27.5 Chinese carbon

I bought a IF 26inch steel frame to convert to a 27.5 650b bike. I love 29ers but thought I would try a 650 for the local trails which are twisty turny quick up and downs. I vaguely remember feeling that the 26in accelerated more quickly than my 26ers but I loved having the bigger 29 wheel to roll ... Read More »

Recommendations for a 26" front fork.

Any suggestions on a front fork for a 2004 s-works epic? I'm building up a 2004 s-works epic frame and need a recommendation for a fork. I believe it originally came with an 80mm fork, but I think I could go 100mm as well. I'm looking for a "value-build" and something I could buy used. I need a ... Read More »

26 Convert - Upgrade Frame?

So I'm riding a SC Blur LT2 Aluminum converted to 650b. I love the bike.. But as with most converts, get a bit of tire rubbing on the frame on big hits and the geo isn't necessarily built for the wheels. I see that the new Giant Trance aluminum frames are $1600. Decent price for a brand new frame w ... Read More »

So I recently converted my 2005 XT equipped hardtail to SS. I had to use a tensioner but it's working fine. I've only ridden it a few times but I already know a) I will ride SS more and b) I want a cleaner look. Maybe eventually I'll build up a dedicated SS with 29er or 650b wheels but, for no ...
