This review is actually for the 1.5-2.0 Schrader MTB tube. These tubes need to be recalled. The lot numbers on the tubes in question are 07 02 77 34. Riding an old Schwinn MTB turned city bike has flattened at least 4 of these tubes. They flatten for no reason except they are cheap. They split at the seam at correct tire pressure and while cruising slow on a flat paved road. Performance buys these for probably 50 cents and then sells them "on sale" for $4.00. I've had to walk the bike back from the store on several occasions. Once the tire just blew sitting in the garage. Performance tires seem OK, just avoid their tubes.

Strength:

Cheap.. easily available. Works well enough when they aren't defective..

Weakness:

The tube blew my tire off the rim today after I repaired a flat and filling it to 45psi. The place it blew wasn't the patch spot. It happened at the valve area. Never had it happen.. except it also happened yesterday INSIDE of a Performance store on someone else's bike. The tire blew after the mechanic handed off the "repaired" bike to the customer lol.

I wouldn't buy Performance tubes ever again. I rather pay a bit more for quality than the chance of the tube blow up on me again. I wasn't even out riding on it!

it holds air

Weakness:

CAN YOU SAY PINCH FLATS

Jebus H man, I went through 2 tubes in 2 days on the same trail, different spots, different places on the tube, they are just not thick enough unless you run greater than 45 psi. You get what you pay for, and these are sh*t for sh*t. Too thin unless you do smooth trail riding ONLY.

Strength:

Weight

Weakness:

It's too damn thin. This ain't a DH tube, but it could be a little thicker.

Quick fix, and somewhat good if you ride with lots of pressure.

Strength:

Round, Black, Rubber Tubular construction provides pressurized air chamber for pnuematic tires.

Weakness:

Nothing Special

These are decent, but nothing special. I think Performance must buy these in massive quantities from Kenda and/or Cheng Shin. They are essentially identical to what came with your bike. Probably not better, probably not worse. Periodically they go on sale so I'll give 'em a good rating for value.
