Inner tubes.

Postby mikeitup » Sun Jul 29, 2007 18:33 pm

After having several punctures in as many weeks I am a bit cheesed off (even though I am getting quicker at fixing 'em). I am thinking of getting Dr Sludge self sealers for my Fury.
Anyone know which size I will need. I have seen these : 26 x 1.75-2.125 x 0.6mm Presta.
Will these fit my gravity 2.3 tyres?
Dumb question I know but any help will be appreciated.

Yes, will fit fine. Do check the rim for sharp edges, and that the rim tape is in place.

Thanks for that. Have ordered two. :D

Have put insulation tape on rims as well as grey rim tape that was on already.

if your getting 'snake bite' punctures you might not have enough air in your tires. they are when the tube pinches between the rim and a hard object your riding over like a step! i have had 4 in the last week but it's cause i been riding a bit to hard and i had skinny tires on a demo bike in work. also make sure if you get a thorn or something in the tire that you remove it before you fit a new tube.
