I got a flat the other day, and now I’m looking to replace the spare tube I carry with me.
I can’t seem to find anything locally in the size I need (29x2.6) and I don’t want to pay shipping on a small inexpensive item.
I spoke with an LBS on the phone and the sales person told me that a 29x2.125 - 2.4" tube would work. I realize that’s a small difference in width and I assume tubes are built to inflate more than is listed on the box, but has anyone else heard that or had experience with using tubes that are listed as smaller than their tire?
I don’t want to end up buying a tube that will end up failing right after replacing a flat mid-ride.
- I’m still doing the rounds calling LBS’s too.
