    26 x 1+3/8 Presta???

    I'm restoring an old Peugeot bike.
    It had 26 x 1+3/8 presta tubes in it.
    I went to get some more but the bro at the shop said they don't make them pv anymore and they're only schrader. Is he right? I saw some on line but I don't want to mail order them every time I need a tube.
    So, should I drill? ty ty for your help!

    Are you SURE the rim took ONLY presta? It's conceivably possible someone used presta with a schraeder valve size rim.

    you can use a 622x32mm presta tube in 26 1-3/8 if it's EA3 / ISO 590mm

    it's not ideal, but it works.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    No... 26 x 1 3/8 tubes in presta should be available at your well stocked LBS.

    I run 26x1 1/8 Presta, I buy my tubes on Nashbar.

    I'd rather get long stem valves, but I haven't found a source.

    Yes, I have the schrader tubes, and tried to use them but alas...
