Hi. I got a problem. I just bought new tires for my MTB that are 26x1.3, but the narrowest tubes I can find says it will fit 26x1.5 to 26x2.0. What to do? Anyone know a place that has some really skinny MTB tubes? Or should I just get these ones? Am I risking a pinch flat running a bigger tube than the MTB tire?

You shouldn't have a problem witht those tube because I am currently running a 26 X1.95 tube in a Bontrager Satellite plus 26 X1.5 tire and I have put about 350-400miles on them with no problem. Just make sure you have a tire gauge so you dont over inflate.

You missed these:


But a good LBS should have the 26x1.0/1.25 tubes.
Man. I can't believe I missed that one! Thanks though. I'll get some of those next time I place a Performance order. The LBS didn't have anything close in that size, so I ended up just getting some 650 x 20c tires that the LBS employee said would work. I've installed and pumped them up. So far so good! Thanks again everyone for the tips!

I hope you mean 650x20 tubes, not tires! The tubes will work fine.

Oops. Haha! You're right. I did mean that I got some 650x20 tubes to fit in my 26x1.3" MTB tires. So far seems to work ok.
