    Noob Tube Time

    Gonna be riding mostly XC with some light DH mixed in in Colorado and Utah.

    -Got some 26x2.35 kenda excavator tires and looking for some good tubes.

    -Not worried about weight and Slime is on my proform.
    Thing is they only have 26x2.125

    Should I go with another brand or just suck it up and run a lil smaller tube?

    TLR: I hate fixing flats on the trail and I'm not ready to go tubeless yet.

    You could try out Michelin Protek Max tubes. Not sure if they make them wide enough though.

    Or just get some heavy duty Freeride/downhill tubes.

    Maxxis or Kenda make good Durable tubes, but you don't want a tube that's too wide cause you might blow off the tire off your wheel.

    To be honest I run lighweight Kenda tubes and cheap department store tubes, and I rarely flat. Although I do live in an area where there are no cactuses and not that many tubes.
