I want a heavy duty ish tube to use as backup if my tubeless is compromised somehow.

Must be thorn resistant.

Bike is SPecialized Camber 29

My tires are setup with stans tubes rim strips etc.
29" x 2.3 Specialized Ground Control Rear
29' x 2.35 Specialized Purgatory GRID

So you want to carry the heaviest, bulkiest, hardest to install tube possible?

If my main concern were thorns, I'd carry a preloaded Genuine Innovations tire plug/tool.



As far as a backup tube, I'd settle for a normal (not lightweight) .90mm thick tube and carry a couple glueless patches and an alcohol wipe to get latex residue off the tube (if I got a second flat).



.90mm thick tube on left, .60mm thick tube on right
