Where to find an 201 tube?

We bought our 7 yo a Fuji ace 20. The tire size is 20x1. The tube popped and I need to replace it. I am having trouble finding this as not every 7 yo is out on a road bike. Help please.

If I lived in Stevens Point Wisconsin I'd try the Hostel Shoppe. 800 233 4340.

I suppose the place you bought the bike from doesn't support it?

JB Importers, a wholeseller that your LBS can order from, has both PV and SV versions listed. Part #63695 for PV and # 63667 for SV. But there's more to a tube/tire's size then the labeled size. There's a few different rim diameters that share the same 20" reference (as labeled on the tire) but need different rubber. I would find the ISO or the ERTRO size, likely molded into the tire's side wall. Something like 406-25 or 451-25 as examples. While tubes have some ability to stretch they really don't like to be compressed. Andy

They will have what is needed. Advice and goods.

May be a 451 rim, based on this: https://archive.fujibikes.com/2013/Fuji/ace-204 (tire size listed as 20 x 1 1/8)
20 x (fraction) is usually 451 and 20 x (decimal) is usually 406.

Until someone who doesn't know the "normal" terminology writes a post and subs a decimal for the fraction. From that point on in the thread the confusion continues until someone who does know asks for exactly what the label has written, not what the OP has written. For more understanding on this sometimes confusing subject of bicycle tire size nomenclature see https://www.sheldonbrown.com/tire-sizing.html Andy

Yes, the key question in this case is what sizing information is written on the tire?

(Math rules/logic not always in alignment with bike tire sizing)
Agree that Sheldon Brown is the best resource.

Fixed.

'Course, with an innertube, how critical is the difference, if at all?

Hmmm...

If you search for something like:
451 Presta Tube
It will weed out a lot of the junk you'll be finding when you try to search by 20x1.

Hmmm... I've been trying to stock most of the common tube sizes that I use, but for some reason I just haven't been bumping into those.

I did, however, discover that one can take your standard 700c tube (new?), and carefully insert it into the tire, and fold it back on itself.

It will get you back on the road in a pinch, and may well be good enough for permanent use, especially considering the 451 tubes seem to be about 3x the cost of 700c tubes.

Both 20" sizes are in common use for BMX. BMX is everywhere. Say hello to nearest LBS.

Probably good plan.
Also, Hostel Shoppe bike shop in the OP's hometown is a large recumbent dealer that also has dealt with 20" wheels (406 and 451) for a long time.

I agree with poster # 10. Any decent full service bike shop. The Raleigh 20, had a 20" dia. wheel. Sorry I never owned a folder. They must use them on trailers & recumbments too. The 24" Schwinn wheel, fits a 26" MTB tube. Try a co-op ? cheers

If none of the local shops carries the size;
try Thorusa or Amazon.
