    20" Tubes

    Does anyone know of a good place to get cheap 20" tubes on the Internet? I have a 406 and need a lightweight 1" and any weight 1.5". The LBS only has heavy tubes for $6.50 each.

    For a 1" ETRTO 406 tube, you can use tubes made for ETRTO 355–basically your standard Birdy tube, good for Conti Grand Prixs and Stelvios. Haven't seen them anywhere cheaper than Gaerlan's. If you want an "officially made" 1" tube, then Continental sells one. 1.5"ers are easier to get.

    Assuming you're using stock rims, I'd wager you're safe with anything up to 1.75".

    If these tubes are what you have on hand, I'd use 'em.

    not touting my own horn ... the prices will go up for the tubes after the first of the year....... but the schwalbe tubes have proven to be of real good quality.

    Thanks Thor

    Thanks everyone!! I took Spambait's advice since I have a ton of Birdy tubes and am running Stelvios.
