    Idiot tube question

    I just bought a trek 8000 and it had road tires on it. I have the dirt tires but it only came with , one tube. I went to wall mart and bought a tube but the stem is old school and huge, my trek takes the small stems like new road bikes.

    Is there a big store I can get a tube at, or do only bike shops sell them?

    You might be able to find it at a box store but a bike store will definitely have what you're looking for.

    I get my tubes at REI. The skinny valves are called Presta, fat ones are Schraeder. It should be marked on the box.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    I can't even find my bike when I'm on drugs. -Willie N.

    Drilling your rim is another option. Then you can use either.

    well, it's too late now, but for the future, to prevent this dilemma, you can:

    1 - ride tubeless! or
    B - always ALWAYS keep a spare tube or two around.
