    i need tubes.....

    today was a great ride during lunch. all was fine till i hear a hissing sound at the signal light. good thing it's nearby my work already.. so i can still ride back.

    after getting into office.. checked and found 4 of these plugged deep into my front tire; which i have no clue what they are... see photo

    now my front tire is flat after i removed all 4. never saw my tire went down that quick.

    anyway.. instead of using my park patch to fill up 4 holes... these tubes has been in there for over 6 yrs. time to change it.

    so where do you guys buy affordable and reliable tubes at? do they sell them in bulk?

    please kindly let me know. thanks~

    I say buy them from your bike shop locally.

    Here's a tip I got shortly after I joined these forums and it works. In the box or plastic bag you carry your spare tube on your bike put a cotton ball in too. When you pull the bad tube out rub the cotton ball inside the tire and fibers will pull off anywhere there's a sharp.

    A single serve wet wipe (I swipe them from BBQ joints) is nice in that package also for after you re-mount the tire.
