    what tube size do i get ??? help, i'm confused

    Hello friends, I'm perplexed......I have a Kona Smoke bike which has tires sized 700x47....I'm trying to buy a new tube to repair my flat. The problem is that I can't get a consistent answer from various bike dealers as to which tube size I need, some say use a 28x1-1/2......some say use a 29er tube.....some say use 700x44. Which do I buy?

    Buy one that says it will fit a tire up to 700X45 or 47.

    Many are offered that will go far greater ranges. 700X35 to 700X50 would be fine.

    Barring not finding exact replacement, a 700X45 would do.

    Yea, find something that will get you close to the 47, otherwise the tube will be stretched to thin and I would think more prone to flats.
