  • Bulk inner tubes – where from?

    I’ve recently had to return to using inner tubes on my big & bouncy bike (can’t get the current tyres to seal, no matter what I try) and am running low on my old stock of tubes, so where would you recommend for cheap bulk purchases of tubes?

    I’m after around 10 of them, 26″, 2.10″ – 2.60″ Presta valves.

    These are the cheapest I’ve found so far – don’t mind paying that prices but are there any other deals around at he moment?

    Most of the cheapies I’ve found only go up to 2.25″ but I need something a bit larger.

    Cheers.

    Those Airwaves are shite ime- the secret is to pump them all up, then send back all the ones that had holes in, 2 out of 5 for me…

    These are a wee bit more expensive but worked for me: http://www.southdownsbikes.com/products.php?plid=m11b1s123p713&mode=print

    They only go up to 2.3 in this offerbut I’m happy pushing them a bit further. There’s a bigger size but they’re basically lightweight dh tubes.

    We have used those from Chain Reaction for a few years now with no problems. They used to come in ten separate boxes but the last ones were loose in one big box. Just stocked up on a box for our Alps trip

    Tredz have bulk Specialized in.

    Edit: For some reason they are hard to find on the website, so it’s worth checking that they are actually available. Here was the direct link I found yesterday:

    Edit 2: ah, they aren’t specialized after all

    The 2.4/3.0 will be Specialized. Just give yourself enough time for them to deliver. I ordered 10 from them a month before our Alps trip. After a lot of chasing they were delivered the day we set off. Put the parcel in the car without checking and got to Alps with the right size tubes but they had got the wrong valves. Left them behind in the Alps

    Wiggle were doing deals on their own brand Lifeline(?)tubes a couple of weeks ago

    In case of emergencies, I saw Halfords have dropped the cardboard box and their own tubes were down to £3.99 or £2.99 on an offer

    I’m assuming this is a set of 3. Lots of other offers on the site though.

    I think they’re just singles – the 3 boxes each have a different size written on them.

    Double and triple check the valve length when ordering, I didn’t and have 5 tubes for waffer thin rims

    Rutland were doing a good deal a couple of months ago and they turned out to be specialized tubes too.

    No problem with airwaves here.

    I’ve had two contis explode for no apparent reason will never use them again
