Inner tube advice...

Hello

I recently purchased a mountain bike and got out on it straight away. Woke up 1 morning to a flat knew it was a puncture. Blew the tire up couldn't hear/feel anything. Didn't use the bike but felt the tire every day and was getting softer and softer by third morning flat as a pancake. The problem is rather than patch it up I wanted to buy a new replacement inner tube and a few extras it says 26x2.2 but I can't find anything at all online?

I'm running an inner tube that says max 26x1.75 in a 26x2.1 tire and it hasn't exploded (yet). You should be able to get by with any Walmart inner tube.

Any 26 tube will do.
