    Good tire / tube combo ...

    Hi guys.
    I need to get my weight down on my 29Žer.
    I have the Trek Mamba and I have already changed all the gearset to Shimano XT.
    Now I really have to cut weight.
    The first is a new wheelset and a good tire / tube combo.
    I have my mind set on the Mavic C29ssmax, they are 1755g for the set.
    Also have I considered Mavic Crossmax SLR wich are 1620g, but think that the C29ssmax will be stronger
    I ride mainly hardpack, I think the Conti RaceKing would be good tires for me.
    But I cant find any lightweight tubes anywhere specifically for 29" tires.

    Any comments on this matter would be brilliant.

    26" tubes stretch fine to work with my 29x2.25 Schwalbe Racing Ralph Performance tires on hardpack with lots of roots and rocks. They track clean through sand and gravel patches and wear longer than the Evo versions at half the price. 610g although mine are under 600. 25psi with tubes.
