    SWAT Box - Need a thin 29" tube with a long presto valve

    Hey All,

    I need tube help for a SWAT box I'm running on my Epic World Cup. When I use a standard Specialized tube it's too thick and has to be jammed into the SWAT box to fit. Specialized recommends a Turbo tube, which is a lot thinner. Problem is it only comes with a 32mm valve. I'm running Enve XC wheels and the 32 isn't long enough. Also, the Turbo doesn't have a removable stem to put an extender on.

    Any other brands make a thin 29" tube

    Just get a tread on extender what give over the stem. Once you get home your gonna pull that tube back out anyhow. Since I am not running a dropper seat post I went with a saddle bag and am using to standard Ti King bottle cages on a med frame. Just a thought.
