tyre and tubes

Postby Unko » Mon Feb 25, 2008 12:06 pm

i was just wondering if i can fit 195 tubes in to 125 tyre on a mountain bike just bourght slicks for her a friend wanted to take the adliade to victor harbor with me.

i have fitted the frount together and cant get all the tube inside the tyre compleatly when its all together its sticking out a bout 2 mm under the steal belt i was thinking it could rub and get a puncher or is it ok to do that.

or is it safer do get 125 tubes to fit the tyres which are 125

You are meant to get the tube that fits the tyre. If you are trying to gt it in and can't put it in all the way i am guessing you haven't pumped it up yet...so no it wont work IMO.

I have enough trouble getting a 1.25 tube in my 1.3 conti slicks! Unless I inflate the tube just right, I inevitably pinchflat the danged thing getting the last bit of the bead over the rim. :oops:

Trying to get anything bigger in there - forgeddit! ... Although I did try some 1.5" tubes once ... and gave up. :lol: Too much tube for the space.
