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~

For tubes I try to support my LBS.They are available for discount in bulk from some of the on line suppliers; Jenson, Performance, Nashbar, Bike Tires Direct etc.

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.
