I'm after some lightweight tubes for the almost ready Vit T2.
Thought i'd try here before eBay or the LBS.
Conti lites or Air-Bs would be nice but anything considered.

I used to use these Tioga superlights in Presta as they were cheap and pretty light. Work fine in a 2.1 tyre.

I bought some of those conti ones and they lasted about two rides before puncturing, they are very thin.
Replaced them with some salso ones which weighed 145g and they've lasted fine.
