Hey Guy's,Im am going to North Star{Very Rocky DH Resort.}. I am
going to run Mishy 2.8 62-559 Front and Rear. I also have Intense
2.5 and 2.7s' to choose from,but I think I'm going with the Dual 2.8. I
use Intense Tubes. 2.35 and the 2.7's for the big rubber. Question: Can
I use a 2.35 tube on the 2.8 Mishy? Or is it a stuped idea as I am thinking
due to the tube being stretched to thin? I run about 25 to 28 PSI. I have
not weighed the two,but the 2.35 Tube has tobe lighter?

Last year I ran a Rear 2.35 Intense Tire and Tube,I flatted four times,ruining
my day. I have a Super 8 so I can run a 24"or a 26" Rear wheel. On the 24" I run
a Intense 3.0 Tire with a 2.7 Intense Tube. Never a flat. On the 26" I ran a 2.7
Intense Tire/Tube,never a flat. This year I was thinking 2.8 Mishy to play it safe
after last year's trouble. I have more 2.35 tubes than 2.7,so I need to buy some
more tubes for the trip. I am 6'4 and come in at 227 butt naked.

Sidenote. I am running Dual 2.3 WTB TimberWorlf's right now and it seems like
the bike is 5 pounds lighter. However, these Tires would get ripped right off my
rim a North Star. Thank You for your time.

Thank's Mate.

I see what you are saying. Perhaps I did not ask the question right. I always
use the right tube for the Tire. As we know,you dont always have to go that
route. Like buying the wrong size seatpost and then use a shim to make it work.

I was thinking that at such low tire pressure,a 2.35 Tube in a 2.8 Tire would not
be stretched to a point where it could be a problem. At the same time mabye save
a little weight. I thought mabye someone out there has tried this?
