tubes in bulk?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

tubes in bulk?

I would like to buy a ten pack or so of 700x23/25 tubes. With a couple bike trips coming up I would like to have a few in reserve with a couple on the bike. Not that I anticipate a flat festival just having extras for my wife and a couple other riders.
Any suggestions to where one would buy a ten pack+-?

I like the Performance brand Forte tubes.
They are buy 3 get 1 free. So go online and buy 9 and you'll get 12.

I also keep a bin of bike stuff in my car so I always have a stash of tubes on group rides if needed. Also tires, cables, pedals and socks.

I got the Venzo deal and the tubes are black and made of rubber ... and a lot cheaper in bulk.

I don't get a lot of flats but I also don't plan to stop riding for a long time, and every time I need a tube it seemed to cost a dollar more than last time, so ....

Have you considered patching? A properly patched tube is as good as a new one. Better, actually, since occasionally new ones fail.

Cool link, less than $15 for five 700x20/28 48mm presta valve tubes is pretty good. Price Point has also had some crazy good deals like $2 per tube recently.

Correction, PricePoint has tubes for $1.29 to $1.49 a tube right now! Price Point Road Tubes
