    Flat Tire on my 08 69er, will this tire work and what tube size do I need?

    Looking at this tire: WTB EXIWOLF 29er TIRE

    http://www.nashbar.com/webapp/wcs/st...0052_208622_-1

    The stock tire hes less then 200 miles on it, somehow I got a tiny hole in the sidewall of the tire and I was told I should replace the tire AND innertube.

    Biggest inner tube I found for a 29" wheel is 29x1.75, will that work? Here is a link the the inner tube:

    It should be fine, but you might not have as much resistance against a flat as something like a 2.0 or larger inner tube. Personally, I'd say it would work fine.

    Remove your tube and read the size on it.

    What pressure do you run. That should work, but I wouldn't run it any lower then 50psi. It'll be thin

    I use 26" tubes in my Niner all the time. You've got to be a bit more careful about pinch flats.

    I'm sure the 29x1.75 or whatever will be fine.

    Pricepoint is where I buy tubes. 5 for $15.

    As for tires, the Exiwolfs are a pretty good all around tire. Numerous threads are around here and at the 29er forum at mtbr.com on tires. I'd look some of them up.
    Pulling the trigger as often as possible.
