    Any tube marketed as a "long stem" should work fine. 45mm is long enough to get the pump on.

    I run Continental Race 700 with the long stem. They're generally $6-$7. you can get the cheep kenda ones with a long stem for closer to $5, but you'll probably have to order them. most shops should be able to get them for you. Don't pay extra for salsa tubes, they're the same as the kenda's.

    I got some long-stem tubes from probikekit.com for cheap, and it's free shipping to the US.

    i also use the conti long stems. no fiddling with extenders, and from my experience they last quite some time.

    I've always thought 60mm works out better than 45mm or 48mm or whatever with my Deep Veez. It just gives you some nice room if you have to use a mini-pump or something.

    yeah. No harm going longer unless the price goes up.

    If you go conti, get the Race 700, not the Race Lite 700. Unless you're concerned about counting grams.

    A lot of long stem tubes only come in the lightweight variety that you probably don't need and will flat easier. Thats why i like the continentals. You get a choice.

    The cheapest.... Forte' (Performance) presta tubes. Roughly $3 a tube. Very long stems.

    I'm on a Specialized Ultra Light bender right now. Roughly $8 a tube... but the valve fits. I've noticed, no matter what tube you put in the Deep V, it's still a heavy wheel.
