i'm picking up a set of the kenda kwik tires from nashbar for my redline which is moving towards a more urban/road bike... and I think these will fit the bill fairly well especially for the price

so the question... can I use standard 26er tubes for these? i do for my 29er tires but wasn't sure on these as they are a good bit smaller.

thanks

Probably not. Get some tubes in the 700x35-44 range.

Throw some Midge bars on that sucker too!

I used the 700x35-44 Forte tubes like Shiggy mentioned when I ran 700x47 Forte Gotham's on my Monocog Flight - better fit.

I've done it using a 26"x 1.25-1.5" tube, it works fine. If you can easily get some speccific to that size it's easier not having to stretch the tube to make it fit.
