Inner Tubes

I was fed up with countless punctures so I changed to a pair of Bontrager Tubes which have the special sealant in them, although I deflated these the other weekend as I was changing my tyres and all the sealant came out the valve. What inner tubes do people reckon are the best? I am a little concious of the weight factor too...

  • Nokian DH tubes arn't as heavy as you would think, and are pretty damn tough, do therefore hard to puncture.

    All tubes with sealant will 'leak' when deflated. Deflate the tube with the valve at 12 o'clock rather than 6 o'clock.
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.
  • to be honest the best innertubes is no inner tubes as a move to UST tyres and converted rims is the easiest way to never have to worry about those unreliable blighters ever again.
