    question on tube size for a new bike.

    i just took delivery of my Kona Dew Plus ... and will be ordering some tubes to have on hand this weekend. but a quick look i have noticed there are a few different sizes to pick from so i am wanting to verify which ones i need.

    the bike has 700c rims (not sure on the width)

    the markings on the tire are as follows ...

    28x1 3/8 - 1 5/8
    37 - 622

    they are Continental Country Ride 700x37

    i am assuming i need a tube that will cover the 37 ... but so far the largest i have found has been 35 .. is that close enough ? the ones i am looking at say 28 - 35 ...
