    700 x 47c Puncture Resistant Inner tubes?

    Does anyone know of any decent puncture resistant inner tubes that come in size 700 x 47c, if so could you post a link to it as I'm in desperate need of some. They can't be too expensive though. Thanks

    I don't know any but i think i pretty much solved the puncture problem by going hardcore on that. I don't worry about that anymore until something happen. I don't care about the extra weight neither.

    For each wheel:
    -schwalbe marathon plus tour
    -2 mr. tuffy liners (inner and outer)
    -2 rim tapes
    -extra tape around the valve tube

    No such thing as a puncture proof tube........ money can be spent for puncture resistant tires, though.

    Schwalbe Marathon Supreme, comes to mind.

    I plan to get these tyres:

    I was going to get Scwalbe Marathon Plus tyres but I wanted the mountain bike tread
    I found these but they're not wide enough:

    I want to keep the weight down aswell.

    Good choice but be aware that there is the smart sam and the smart sam plus with the greenguard puncture protection. The smart sam plus is available in 700x40C

    Thorn resistant tubes have a lot of rubber in them. the thick rubber does resist some penetration

    I rode a 6 month Tour on a set p/v in a 622-40 tire ..
    heavy wheels due to TR tubes and Puncture resistant tires

    will drive some performance focused folks nuts,
    but if taking your time and stopping to look at stuff along the way

    Is OK by you, Its really less of an Issue.
