I just ordered two of the S-Tubo's from BikeInn, @ $25.95 USD each, plus $7.95 shipping.They are $35 each and $11 shipped from the link. No USA vendors? Fairwheel bikes? Same price
These are the ones I carry. Only had to use them twice. No problems, but I did baby them for the rest of the ride.
Yeah, considering how rarely I have to tube up a tubeless tire, it'd be nice to have a smaller, lighter, "I just need to get home" option for my repair kit.They look interesting as a spare. Is it possible to fold it down to the same size after use? Or do they stretch/expand?
Specialized has an underseat carrier for a tube, CO2, lever, and valve that bolts to one of their seats (requires their seat though). That is what I have on my XC bike. With that, the SWAT bottle tool, and head tube chain breaker I don't really have to carry anything.Then you could do a steer tube tool/co2 set, maybe a bar end plug kit, and the tube under the saddle for race-ready hidden storage. I'm working on making something now for the saddle.
I did just the same. Crazy as the weight saved might be enough to compensate for my new dropper. Fair trade I would say. Even at $25 each plus shipping.I just ordered two of the S-Tubo's from BikeInn, @ $25.95 USD each, plus $7.95 shipping.

Ha, re the karma, though I have a net surplus, I believe...LOLI did just the same. Crazy as the weight saved might be enough to compensate for my new dropper. Fair trade I would say. Even at $25 each plus shipping.
The only bad thing is that given the cost trail karma becomes more interesting. Hard to just hand a stranger a $30 tube.
