Good find. It's worth keeping a couple of spare inner tubes at the ready if you cycle to work or use your bike every week.
thanks, have just ordered some 1.5/2.2 shraeder's for trials bike
thanks. was in need of more long valve 700x20
Agree with the need to have spares BUT SPECIALIZED are one of the worst inners I have ever had the misfortune to use. Indeed the 'SPECIALIZED' equates to a sub standard make. Once you realize that its far less heartache.

be warned.
Sold. Just got my bike back on the road and a couple of spare inner tubes for a fiver is ideal.

Utter rubbish, and you're showing your ignorance of bikes by saying this. I've been using these tubes for years and have rarely had problems. Used loads of different makes and *always* come back to Specialized.
will it just be an auto 50 % of instore?

New to MTB.

I've got 26" tyres an my innertube is 26x2.35.
Will the 26x2.4-3 be ok as an emergency spare?

What size tires are you running at the moment? 2.35-4 is large, just check the size of your current tire (marked on the side wall), and buy one which is equal to, or no greater than that size.

Look at the valve fittting as well, a lot of new bikes come fitted with Schrader (car type) valves, but you will find a lot of riders using Presta valves.
There maxxi ones.

Size 3.5 but i can't find the right tubes on halfords either

I've still got 4 out of the 5 Specialized inner tubes I bought the last time they were on offer. It was only within the last year but that doesn't seem to suggest there is anything sub standard about them....
Might head down to evans tomorrow and clear the shelf lol, not that I puncture a lot lolz.
I need some spare tubes and these are great price, only thing is I cant tell which size I need! My bkie is bikeradar.com/gea…691
My local bike shop went under about a year ago, he was doing 3 for £5 on schwalbe tubes, needless to say I cleared him out of all 26x1, 26x2 and 700c, still have quiet a few left... to me a tube is a tube, if it came from a bike shop that's not a bikehut, all should be well, jsut carry these evanscycles.com/pro…ros with you.
My tyres require 1.5 sized tubes. I usually just go for '26 x 1.2/1.5' but is there any reason for choosing these over '26 x 1.5/2.2' tubes? I'm sure there's probably no difference but I wonder if I go for the larger tube it may be slightly more durable. Thanks in advance

It's more than likely down to the tyres and/or pressures used more than anything. I switched from a set of slicks on my hybrid to a pair of Schwalbes (a reputable make obviously) with a bit more tread on for the winter, and I've never had so many punctures in my life. I got the first one within 10 minutes of going out! I had to ditch them in the end, too much pressure and they just ended up with constant snakebites, drop any pressure out of them and they were just no good for fast riding (you could feel them trying to roll off the rim as you went around corners).



It will be absolutely fine as either a main tube or a spare.
Just managed to ride over an old dart in the road!!!! so got tubes, now need tyre and mudguard. Good find have some heat
perfect :-)
Good deal, you can never have too many tubes!

Although having said that I use the Airwave, from ChainReaction... Get a 10 pack (share with a mate if needs be) chainreactioncycles.com/Mod…326 £18 for 10 pack, bargain!

Doesn't that if anything add credence to his comment, as after however long viewing these forums as a guest he thought his point was important enough to register and post?

I took advantage of this last time round. I used one at the time and found the valve was broken so got a replacement. The second I kept in my drawer for 6 months, to find that when I needed to use it, it had the same fault. I'm confident it was just bad luck, as others have been fine, but I can see why someone else might think they were terrible and worth warning others.
5 quid for 1 tube har har, laughin all the way to the bank this lot... still dear at £2.50... tubes a tube, just buy in bulk off ebay !!
Hi Folks - newbie here!

Does it matter re the valve type? My hybrid bike came with 700 x 38c semi-slick tyres and the inner tubes are 700 x35/42 (i think) with Presta valves. Should I go for the 700 x 35/45 Schrader valve inner tubes or the 700 x 28/38 Presta ones (I didn't see any 700 x 35/45 Prestas)? Any major differences/benefits?

Any advice is welcome and appreciated - thanks in advance.

Thanks this looks like the cheapest deal nowadays. It used to be possible to buy individual 26" inner tubes from lots of places, Tesco, Wilkinsons for £1.99 but not now, and I can't see a deal for ten for less than this on Ebay.

Don't forget Quidco @ 5%

Their view is just as valid as yours, and both are anecdotal.

Just leave them be, if this really is the case more people will say so.


Personally I use "****" nutrak stuff and I get less punctures (almost none) on the thinest lightest tyres than people using thick guarded heavy tyres with puncture resistant tubes and all that - so I don't really think it matters all that much, its probably just luck.

the stem of the valve will be a different width (wider) for schrader, so may not fit through the hole in the wheel rim. If you currently have presta, buy presta....
Just bought a bunch of the (usually rip off) 29er tubes. Thanks......
