    Any bulk deals on 29er presta tubes?

    I'd like to buy 6-10 presta 29er tubes if a good deal is out there. I run 2.25-2.5 tires so I need bigger than average tubes to fit. Normal, not long prong stems.

    You don't need extra wide tubes or anything special for a 2.25-2.5" wide tire. I run 2.1-2.3" tubes in a 3" wide tire. Tubes stretch quite a bit before they burst or get so thin that they puncture extremely easy. If you find a good deal on anything wider than 2.1" you'll be fine.

    Hmm, I might go that way. But the specific tubes that I want will not be available until the 4th of January. Not exactly immediate gratification.

    Unless you have a flat right now, I don't think tubes are ever going to give instant gratification are they? lol... unless you're not actually using them for their designed purpose?

    Also, you might find that the store(s) have them - I think the website let's you check if stores local to you ( if there are any) have stock...

    These don't suck.
    They used to do volume pricing for 5 or 10, but it looks like individual tubes are on sale.

    If you have abandoned 26'' wheels way back in 2003, then why are you still using tubes in, soon to be over, 2013?

    I am not trying to be an ass**** here. Just an honest question since I still ride 26'' wheels, but converted to tubeless way back. Best upgrade ever!

    Not everyone is on the tubeless bandwagon. I tried them did not like them and have gone back to tubes.

    Jenson has the best deal I have found. $2.99
