Anybody know of some lightweight 29er tubes? Just got some new wheels and want to find some lightweight tubes for them. Having a hard time finding anything. I have heard o putting 26er tubes in instead, opinions?
I can't be the only one trying to avoid tubeless, don't want or need the hassle, I have never had a pinch flat and very rarely get a goat head.

Found some threads on this but they are several years old and I can't find the products that were mentioned. Maybe I'm just too old school???

Cheers!

Pinch flat protection isn't the only reason for going tubeless. You are also able to run lower pressures for more cush and traction. I highly, HIGHLY recommend it, going tubeless was the most noticeable upgrade I've done to a bike.

But if you insist on running tubes, the q-tubes mentioned above were always good to me before I switched over
