    inner tube size vs tire size

    hey all,
    details... got a LHT. Bought spare inner tube for the LHT complete with 1.5 inch tires (tube size is 1.5+). Got home, swiched to mt bike slicks 1.25, never had/couldnt find spare inner tube for mt bike slicks. Commute sort-ish distances, haven't cared about differnce in size. Will be overnight touring, care about difference in sizes.
    Can I put a larger inner tube in a smaller tire?

    Within reason, yes. Make sure that the tube is tucked in well away from the bead before inflating.
