Do you guys think (butyl-) inner tubes age and that rubber decay makes inner tubes more prone to leaks and punctures with time? If so, what time is the estimated half-life of a inner tube (1/2 way gone?)
Do you guys think that the attaching (self gluing of inner tubes to the clincher tire, which we often see in older tire/tubes is a sign of rubber disintegration?
The rubber of tires ages with time and gets harder an brittle, but that is more to exterior exposure- isn't it? Does the same (or different) apply to inner tubes?
