what size tubse for 26x1 3/8 tires
My Triumph 3 speed has a flat. Last time I changed a tube I used 26" MTB tubes because that's what I had around, bbut I also blistered both thumbs and pinched 3 tubes trying to get the hard old tire mounted. This time I'm buying a new tire, but also wondering if maybe I didn't use the right size tube.

26 X 1 3/8 is a 590 erd. I sell tubes in that size as should any decently stocked lbs. The other closest size would be 650c at 571 erd but will prolly not be big enough volume for the tire you are going to use. look around and you should be able to find the correct one.

The tire is a Specialized Tri-Sport. Looks a little anachronistic on an old 3-speed, but it looks like a really nice tire with very smooth tread, and it only cost $10.
