Tubes?

Where on Earth does one find 20" Presta valve tubes? I forgot to ask about that at the shop when I picked-up my hot new folder (too eager to ride, I suppose!).

I bought mine directly from Schwalbe. Note that you should not go to their main site at www.schawlbe.com, but rather their North American site at http://www.schwalbetires.com/.

Thanks for the tip. As I see it, they only have short Presta valve stems for the 406c tubes -- I have to wonder if that will work with the snazzy aero rims on my Speed Pro. I think the tubes the bike has are long stemmed. Hmmm.

This site seems to sell the same (cheaper, though!).
