Good tubes, surprisingly Hard to find

I use this product on my mountain bike when I have to put on road tires. Road tires on a mountain bike you ask? This is for New York City's Five Boro Bike Tour. Where you travel with 32,000 fellow bicyclists and visit all 5 boros in 40-44 miles. Some of these cyclists even know how to ride in a straight line. One time I took the tour with my road bike and someone rode into my derailleur. (Er. Sorry he said..), so for this ride I leave my road bike at home. It is sufficiently long and early enough in the season that I didn't want to use my Mountain Bike tires.

This application is uncommon enough that it is hard to get tubes in the correct size. Bike Tires direct had the correct tubes in stock. And Michelin is my favorite brand of bike tubes.

I was glad that I bought them and kept a spare in my saddlebag. I got a failure in my on-bike tube whilst on a training ride. This was NOT a Michelin tube and I had a handy replacement. It failed around the valve and would have been a show stopper if I didn't have a replacement tube.

The Michelin tube worked great. I finished the training ride and rode the five boro bike tour with no problem. I would certainly recommend these tubes.

This worked well with a 26 X 1-1/8 Gatorskin tire.

This was used on the rear of my recumbent trike. It gave no problems in installation. In combination with the Gatorskin, it has run flat free for over 100 miles.

Value for decent price

I've been commuting on Michelin slicks with this tube and it has minimal pressure loss if any. I would recommend it as a reliable tube. I carry a spare but I think it will be long before I have to use it.

Excellent quality!

The tubes look very well made and I was surprised how the valve stem is reinforced where it attaches to the tube. So far I've hadn't any problems with them. I suggest that when you change inner tubes, look at the condition and the type of rim strip that you're using. In the past I had a problem with tubes that were splitting on the side that was pressing against the rim. At first I thought it was caused by buying cheap inner tubes so I bought expensive tubes and I still was getting flats. The problem was actually caused because I was too cheap and was using inexpensive,poor quality rubber rim strips. You may want to spend a little more and buy rim strips that are made of a nylon cloth material.
