    I wouldn't waste my money on that. If you need a new tube get a new one they are cheap but don't waste twenty dollars on that.

    i was lookin at those stopflats a while ago. for a while i was goin through like 2 or 3 tubes a week. but then i realized that it was on the inside of the rim, not the outside.

    Dude seriously don't worry about it. Generic tubes are like two dollars they work as replacements.

    I had a guy that worked for one give me false info about gearing and hubs. Then, found out after I gained experience that he lied to me. Never went back there again I get all my stuff from Dan's Comp and most of my info on here.

    Did you guys even look at the weight, Shipping Weight (in pounds):3.25
    That means that the tube might be 3lbs, when a normal one is half a pound. wtf...
