Bicycle Tube - Things To Consider
Bicycle Tubes, they force you to frequent to a bicycle store/workshop, either for a puncture or for air filling.
The visit can be reduced if not eliminated by
- Use Butyl tube instead of Latex, they are stronger, lighter and can retain precious pascals for longer periods of time.
- Have a spare tube with you always.
- If a tube has a habit of frequent punctures its good to replace it soon than fix the puncture again and again. One of my factory fitted tubes had frequent puncture problems this was fixed once changed the tube for good.
- Butyl tubes are costlier compared to latex ones, but yes the cost is justified for what you get back.
