just remember to take spare tubes when you go out
a wee bit puncture prone in my experience.

I didn't have any problems with mine - lasted for years and eventually perished.

Had to pump them up every couple of weeks or so, more often than butyl, but having those red dust caps told those that knew that you'd just blown a load of money on some red latex!

Now replaced by a really nice michelin latex tube, bright green tube green anodised valve and matching cap. Nice

best tubes around?>??????? :shock:

Absolute crap

I remember one particular street winter ride with my mate where this tube ended up being ripped out of the tyre and slung across the road never to be touched again to the tune of more expletives than Billy Connely after a night on the lash

It attracted punctures even more than Mr Tuffy

Maybe it was just us though :?
