Larger size tube in a smaller tire?
Hi, I'm going to get some narrower 26x1.75 tires and want to ask if it'll be ok if I used my old tubes. However, my tubes are Maxxis Ultralights which were designed for 1.90"-2.125" tires. I know using too small a tube can over-stretch it making the tube too thin, but in this case, I will be doing the exact opposite. I know getting a new tube isn't very expensive, but I've already got these tubes and they are also quite light at 125g each. So will they work? Thanks.
