Don't understand which ones I can chose
I am looking for new inner tubes and tires for my EZ-1 SX. I am confused to what inner tubes and iires I can chose fromso they will fit on my EZ-1 SX. When looking at tires and inner tubes what should I look for please to make sure they will fit on a EZ-1 SX ?
Very often the sidewall of your tires can tell you what size to look for; your user manual as well.

The 16" and 20" tire/tube will be easy to find (less so the 349mm size), as they are the more common sizes.
Gaerlan does a good job of giving a brief explanation about this:
Also, you can look here as well, under the "Tires and Tubes" section:
"20" inch tire comes in two ERTO sizes: 406 and 459. 406 needs an innertube that is
18-19" diameter where 459 innertube will be 20-21" diameter. BMX bikes also use
20" wheels but with 1.75 to 2.1" size tires which need a larger diameter tube. Tubes
should be fit to the tire. 406 tires come in a range from 1" or a bit under to 2.1" and
the tube for a 1" would explode inside a 2.1'' tire where a tube for a 2.1" tire would barely if at all fit inside a 1" tire. Gaerlan and Hostel Shoppe cover some of this but be aware of the BMX factor and that BMX bikes are a LOT more common than bents,
so unless the shop sells bents, a "20in" tube may actually be for a BMX tire.
www.poweroncycling.com also covers this. Steve
