CONTINENTAL MOUNTAIN BIKE INNER TUBE

The Continental Mountain Bike Inner Tube is a made of tough rubber. As basic inner tube it does a great job and fills the empty space in your tyre with airy bounce.

CONTINENTAL INNER TUBE EXTRA INFO

Butyl rubber mountain bike inner tube
For 26" bike wheels
Size: 26" x 1.75" - 2.5"
Seamless construction
Auto Schrader Valve

Seems like excellent value for money for a decent branded inner tube. I bought a couple of these 6 months ago and even though they were on offer then, I paid closer to £4.00 for them.

Likely to be Reserve and Collect only to get the discount price. I expect you'll end up paying £6.29 in-store otherwise.

Same, don't see why MTB need Presta TBH but it sucks as I could really do with a couple of spares at this price

I don't get it with people. At this price you buy the Schrader tube and buy a Schrader to Presta adaptor off eBay for pennies - its still squids cheaper than a Presta tube. I bought 4 of these tubes last time they were on here (a few weeks ago) and bought a 4 pack of adaptors for a couple of quid - job done.

mr cynical, if the bike is a presta type, the schrader valve itself will not fit through the much thinner hole in the presta rim, hope this helps clear up your confusion

My 2 bikes were Presta (well, mine and the missus). I bought. 4 of these, a pack of 4 adaptors as mentioned, and was back on the roads in days. No confusion, no problems with holes in wheels.

no problems with the holes in my wheels either

These are rubbish, I bought 6 and I've never had to replace one yet! Oh, hang on...

On my last 2 bikes that took presta valves, schrader valves wouldn't fit the hole.

My rims have valve holes big enough to fit presta only, do these adapters you mention screw into the tube?!?! Instead of patronising people, care to explain how you get a 5mm valve through a 3mm hole without drilling the rims?!?!

Exactly, the only way I can see an adapter working is if it screwed onto a presta to make a Schrader pump fit.... we will have to wait for MrCynical to enlighten us

Apologies people - you are right and I am wrong.
I though this was a repost of the deal from the other week, where I genuinely bought the "wrong" narrow presta tubes and bought the schrader adaptors off ebay (thats what happens when your trying to sneak a look at HotUKDeals on a mobile phone whilst at work!)

Im man enough to admit I made a mistake - we all do, but as for being patronising, definitely not.

You can just drill your rims! You don't need to open the holes up that much.

Agree with the above its quite easy to increase the size of the valve hole (?) on the rims for this to fit. I've done it before on old mountain bikes.

Can anyone recommend a place to buy tyre and tube sets? I've got 700c wheels. Thanks.

Bargain bagged 4 for under a tenner

Drill a £100 rim to save a couple of quid on a tube?
Don't think so buddy....

Oh dear, just showing your lack of knowledge there? You can get rim inserts and this means you can use both valve standards. Helps if you're doing some DH

How will an insert help me fit an 8mm valve into a 5mm hole??

Not sure what you're all arguing about. I bought two Presta tubes (I.e. the thinner type) for the same price as here from Barnstaple and conveniently got 20% off on a Monday deal :-)

Excellent tubes for stock (although I'm converting to tubeless now so I suspect that these will be the last I buy)

If you want Presta, buy the right ones! Both are available. And as for drilling out rims... ngggg :-/
