    Presta or Schrader for Goblin and Guardian?

    I just ordered 2 new bikes and obviously don't have them yet. Never having owned 29ers before, I thought I'd go ahead and pick up some spare tubes while I'm getting my pedals and other accessories. I'm guessing both these bikes use Presta valves, correct?


    Does anyone have a favorite brand of 29er tubes or all they are about the same?


    Thanks

    None.

    Buy a Stan's kit and run tubeless. You won't go back to tubes.

    Thanks for the order!

    All of our XC bikes ship with Presta Valves.

    A lot of people have had good luck with the Forte tubes (Performance's house brand). They usually have them on sale for a good price and they seem to be decent quality.

    Thanks Jeremy. I'm sure you'll hear from me again sometime next week. Looking forward to receiving the new rig!
