650 tube in a 700 wheel
Picked up a 650 tube for my 700 wheel by accident D:
I could probably just take it back and trade it in, but that involves driving back across town. What exactly are the dangers of riding with a 650 inside a 700, if any?
I don't think it will work at all. There is a big difference in the two sizes. But.... I never have tried it.
I would take it back.
wasting an hour trying to get the tire on the rim with that tube.....I bought one by mistake and put it in my seat bag....one day on a ride I had to use it. It got me home... go buy a 700c tube
Shoowee. Thanks again, guys. Will do.
It must be 5g lighter, so use it and tell us how it improves your climbing performance.
im sure you can fit it in there but i wouldnt. its going ot stretch too much

A 650 tube, eh? Once I ordered a can of Finish Line Teflon lubricant from Nashbar. They sent me a Vittoria 20" X 1 1/4" - 1 1/8" tube. It was marked Finish Line lubricant. I sometimes carry it with me, hoping to run into a recumbent. I doubt it would fit my 700C rims.

The question is why would you want to do that? it's like stretching a size small undies on a XL ass....
I think you should sell ur existing one on ebay or swap with the fellow rider on the forum...
