you can use a 24" tube, it just doesn't fit as snugly so watch it as your airing up. As far as durability, I don't really see that as an issue with the "rim strip"...are you having issues with the 20" tubes?
no, no issues. I have just noticed that when I have taken the 20" tubes out after a while (for swapping tires, ripped sidewalls, etc), they seem stretched-out, really thin and flimsy. The tires I am getting ready to convert are wire bead, so I am hoping to keep the rim strip in for a LONG time. I just thought that a 24 wouldn't get quite so stretched out over time and might, ultimately, hold up better after a year or more.mtnbiker72 said:are you having issues with the 20" tubes?
