Inner Tube Quality
Being new to mountain biking I decided to learn how to change a flat and carry proper tools. Purchased Q tube thorn resistant inner tubes but they are VERY heavy so i'm returning them.
In Dick's Sporting Goods today picked up a couple of Avenir tubes at $6.99 each.
Got home and decided to pump them up to assure they were not defective.
When i inflate they each have an area where the rubber bulges. Not a small bubble but the entire tube for an area about 5-6 long is bulged. No leaks after 10 minutes just not uniform in shape.
Is this normal? Will the tube regain proper shape when inside a tire and inflated?
If these are not good tubes what do you all recommend in a tube?
Entirely normal. The tube just enlarges to fit the tire.
