    cross tire tubes

    May be a silly question but is there any downside to using a 35mm-43mm tube in a 32mm tire? I didn't have the absolute correct tube to put in so I used a larger tube that I had laying around. Seems to have inflated fine. Haven't ridden on it yet. Should I expect any issues? I wouldn't think a 3mm should make a difference.
    Thanks in advance!

    If it fits without folds or kinks, than no problem, may be a bit heavier.

    No folds or kinks. I pre-inflated it a bit before installation; went in just like the correct size. I'll ride tomorrow and see how it works.

    Other than the fact that it's an inner tube?
    Nope. Since it's not creased or folded, you'll be fine. Tubes are often a tad undersized.
