    Marathon Supreme 700x32 tubes?

    What tubes do you use with these tires? I'm currently running air locks that are rated to 28's, but am having trouble with flats. Any suggestions?

    I have the Marathon Plus in 26 X 1.75 and use regular tubes for the size. So far, so fabulous. No flats and part of my ride on Sunday involved lots of broken glass along a stretch of park road. Excellent stuff, those Marathons.

    Problem is, I can't find 700x32 in the local shops. The closest I've found is 35-38.

    Looks like they have 700 x 28-32's at REI stores. If anything, use the 35's, if anything, less expansion may increas tube thickness. Size isn't that big a deal if you're going up in that small of an increment.

    I'd go up a bit, but not down IMO.

    I wouldn't use a 23 in a 28, but that's me.
