Just went on the chain reaction cycles to buy some inner tubes and saw this deal and snapped their hands off.

These might not be the best inner tubes on the market but when you can pay this much for one its a no brainer for me.

I have paid £5.99 in halfords in the past and even cheap ones of the internet are normally around £2.99 so its a massive saving.



5th of August - Just received my inner tubes none of them have punctures which is a bt of a surprise. Now the hard job of getting them back in to the bag.

hmm review:

"Absolutely terrible. From a box of 10, 1 arrived with an area about the size of a penny coin covered in splits holes, 1 had the valve torn away from the tube, and the 2 that actually made it onto a wheel had their valves fall off after a couple of rides. The rest went in the bin. Just get the nutrak ones which actually work. Its pretty terrible thet CRC are still selling these."

that was 2 years ago, hopefully not the same now..

ones from merlin i got were all raleigh, and all pretty consistent quality.

You are joking aren't you? Send it to landfill rather than repair it? What is society coming to these days, I despair.

I must admit I rather enjoy the achievement of a puncture repair done well, no cheap throwaway tubes for me.

Hats off to you then, but ... I haven't the time or skill to fix an inner tube mega quickly / or be sure it will hold, in a race situation - just can't risk re-inflating to find the patch/fix hasn't held, I do see your point though. Although I buy more expensive inner tubes than these, still a hot deal though.

Imho you'd need no brains to fall for buying these. What if you're 15 miles from home and your cheap inner tubes pop, which they're more likely to do? Repair kits are also much smaller than carrying round full inner tubes, and will repair more than the one problem. I'd much rather be using decent inner tubes in the first place that I can rely on to get me out, and home, safely.

Nothing about paying to repair/replace etc, just they aren't as convenient as you may originally think, and as far as safety goes its a bad idea.

thanks, nice find
#11
Good deal if you want to spend your evening changing an inner tube, personally I would fit a Slime Tyre Liner.

Had one in my mountain/road bike since I bought it over 10 years ago. Never had a puncture and that's even with living in the country where farmers cover the road in thorns when they hedge trim.

lol, behave!
skill:roll: repairing an inner tube is childs play and anyone with half a brain can do it!!
I must have repaired dozens and dozens of punctures over the years and the only time I have failed is when I was foolish enough to not check the inside of the tyre and sure enough the thorn that had originally inflicted the puncture was still their and simply caused a new puncture (the repair was rock solid as they always are)

STOP BEING LAZY AND SELFISH It takes no more than 20-25mins from start to finish to fix a puncture and innertubes are o.k for a good 3-4 repairs before even thinking about binning them!
No wonder we are running out of places to dump our rubbish when people have such wasteful mindsets !!

Another bike related thread, another tale of doom, gloom and potential death to anyone trying to cycle on the cheap. Personally I prefer expensive sound systems that go to a decent volume crisply and cleanly. Should I be trolling every audio deal and telling people they will go deaf by listening to their cheaper, harsher products :whistling:

Best advice given, I started using these after the farmers left thorns all over where I used to live resulting in lots of punctures, and have never had any problems since. But always carry your essentials with you anyway (including a compact repair kit, mini toolkit, chain link kit, minor first aid, and a few pounds) just incase.

Kind of a stupid analogy really, as listening to a slightly fuzzy bassline isn't going to risk leaving you stranded in the middle of nowhere. But yeah, I like nice stereos as well. Gz!

Thats a great price, though personally I prefer to stick with branded tubes for the sake of quality. I tend to ride in some remote places but for day to day use these are a steal.

Rather than fadge around trying to repair, trust me it's much faster to chuck a new tube in ... Do you repair at the side of the road in the pouring rain? - or put a new tube in? :)

Slime layer doesn't prevent punctures ...
#21
These arent the best but hey they arent expensive ethier - bring a couple with you on a trip, if you get a puncture a quick swap out and fix it later is better than trying to do it at the side of the road or in the middle of a field.

Cant see why people a whining on about other things
Question - can you get 10 inner tubes at that size for cheaper
Answer - No
= good deal :thumbsup:

The point of the analogy is that in both cases something can go wrong whether you have the cheap or the pricey option. As such me telling people the cheap stereos are going to do them harm would be as much nonsense as this idea that any cheap cycle kit will ruin your fun and endanger your life.

With ten inner tubes you are less likely to get stranded in the middle of no where than with one expensive tube and a puncture kit, FACT. Price does not make them completely puncture proof and not all punctures can be fixed.

I bought a bottle of that green slime stuff they sell in Halfords to squirt into the inner tubes for about a fiver six or seven years ago. Never had a puncture since.

But who wants to carry around ten inner tubes? If you just take one spare poor quality one, then that is likely to go as well. Much better to spend the money on one decent spare and carry that around with you.

Currently £1.82 each in Tesco (except 700c). You can buy only the number you need and no wait for delivery (you'll probably be out when they come anyway!).

Not voting cold, just offering an attractive alternative.

Considering you most often don't have to remove the entire tube and wheel to fix a puncture, and preparing the tube and applying the patch is a very quick operation then I doubt replacing the entire tube is much faster. It also means you need to carry a bulky tube around rather than a tiny puncture repair kit. The only time a complete tube may be advantageous is it you had completely knackered the original beyond repair, but then again chances are the rim and tyre wouldn't be too healthy in that situation anyway.

Tubeless tyres weigh a ton.

I don't know what you lot do to get punctures so often, but I think these would be fine. I've used wrong sized tubes, cheap ones from tesco and survived a fair time with near bald tyres. This is along canal paths, through the city, forests, jumps, skate parks and generally all over the place. If you see a thorny hedge, keep a distance. If you see broken glass, don't ride through it.

Slime also works very well, or similar brands. Using an old inner tube as a liner helps, too.

Nope, its a stupid analogy. Scrimp on your stereo and at worst your treble won't be quite balanced right. So what? Scrimp on your tubes and you might get a puncture, then discover your cheap spare might have a faulty valve. Then you're screwed as you're unable to cycle back home (unless you fancy screwing up your tyre and wheel as well). 20-30+ miles isn't uncommon for me, and that would be a bloody long way to walk while pushing a bike. So is just a couple of miles.

Nobody in their right mind would carry more than one (or maybe two) spares. Just one is about five times the size of a repair kit. Saying you're going to go out carrying ten spare inner tubes is just plain stupid. FACT. Get decent tubes, slime layers, and the ability that most children learn at about age 8 to repair punctures, and you're much less likely to get stranded in the middle of no where.

Plus you're contributing less to our wasteful dumping society and helping save the hedgehogs.

You don't need tubeless tyres- proper ust tyres are expensive and heavy. Stan's rims and some wheel milk here with my regular nobby nics...

most any tyre can be converted to tubeless cheaply and effectively- google 'ghetto tubeless'
