- Inner tubes for 29+ tyres
My front wheel is a 29×3″ tyre. Set up tubeless but i want to carry a spare tube for the inevitable time that i have puncture that won’t seal.
Seems to be little choice in 3″ tubes and they’re not cheap – but is an actual fat/plus 3″ tube necessary, or can i realistically get away with something smaller?Posted 2 years agowwaswasSubscriber
For something that’s ’emergency’ use I’d want to know it was the right thing for the job.
Having a tenner’s worth of tube in your bag for years as insurance isn’t that big a deal v a fiver’s worth that might go ‘pop’ as soon as you get it up to pressure or ride over the first root or rock?
You’ll always need it at 10 at night in January when it’s pissing down.Posted 2 years agoajantomSubscriber
When I bought my Krampus it had Surly 3″ inner tubes fitted that weighed about the same as a small star. They also seemed really prone to punctures.Posted 2 years ago
I then started using much lighter Conti 29er tubes (1.8″-2.4″), and not only were they lighter, they also seemed to puncture less.
I went tubeless with it a couple of years ago, but have a Conti 29er tube that I carry just in case. Not had to use it yet!andyg1966Member
