    which tubes?

    I recently purchased a Sun EZsport and love it. IT has Kenda Kwest 16 and 20 1.5 tires. Please advise me as to the best possible tubes to buy since I am ridind without one. Also are there better more puncture proof tires that a can purchase. mine do not have a kevlar belt. Is it preferrable to have them for better puncture resistence. Please advise. Thanks

    In my opinion, for pucture resistance, a liner works best--Tuffy or others--in your stock tires. Then ordinary tubes work just fine. If you are determined to change tires (I would do the liners first and get some miles on your bike--Kendas are good) then there are so many possibilities from Schwalbe Marathon Plus to Maxxis and everything in between. Search tires on this forum if you want plenty to read about.

    I have the Kendas with Tuffys on one of my trikes and get no flats.
