I could have sold you some Foss tubes, fitted, but unridden quite cheaply.

Be aware that if you fit them in an oversize tyre, they will fail when riddensince they do not stretch evenly like rubber/butyl inners (no need to ask how I know that).

I just like gears too much, and a few bits became available that allowed me to run gears and keep it under 8kg cheaply... :D
