£8.49 for a tube and sold without a smile…
Any bike shop people willing to pass on the wholesale price? It was about 60p at my lbs 15 years ago.
I used to get some at better than shop rates unboxed as they were for the hire fleet. However they were apparently not able to sell the unboxed cheaper ones to the general public as they did not have the info from the box or something like that.
I once sold a tube to a guy in Morzine for 10 Euros including use of a track pump, he was very happy about not having to take lifts up and down for an hour to get another tube.Posted 4 years agoibnchrisSubscriber
Start of an all day ride on the flinty downs so unfortunately no other option really (other than being better prepped before any of you jump in…) To be honest, I’m not too fussed paying out for my own lack of organisation but I’d at least expected a quiet ‘sorry about that…’ Rather than the implication that it was totally reasonable.Posted 4 years agojk1980Member
I’ve only ever bought strong, more expensive tubes eg the maxxis free ride ones or I’ve got an mx style one on my dh bike. Both were around £12 each but I’ve not had a puncture for about 10 years on them, touch wood.
So the amount you’ve paid for an unbranded one does sound a bit steep to mePosted 4 years ago
