Can anyone tell me what inner tube I need for HED rims? I am guessing a long valve schrader but I cannot find anything suitable.

Use presta and get an extension

I assume Heds need a VERY long valve? It's easy enough to get 60mm prestas in the x1.75-2.25 sizes, but thin on the ground if you want skinny tyres.

Conti and Bontrager do 48 mm presta tubes for 26 x 1.5, I have them on my Reynold 32mm carbon rims, with about 15 mm sticking out. Or get valve extensions for about 7 quid on ebay, CR etc...

I take it the rims never came with the extender valves?
You could get some of these I think.

The new wheel is likely to create you quicker up the mountain and all over the sides,just in here we are at mud year, some beefy street bicycle on the dust tires.if you think a little bit of air time is the best way to sleek out the challenges.
