    Ha! ....Seriously.... 24 inch tubes work better, easier to keep snug and aligned when mounting a tire, for ghetto strips in 650b rims. Used 26 inch tubes can be too stretched to work at all.

    You could probably stretch a 26er tire on there eventually only about 2cm.

    Yeah, I figured that out the only reason I asked was the bike shops were closed yesterday and I'm having trouble with my stans valves leaking at the rim
