    Looking for some good 26 inch tubes

    Hi all,

    I am needing to find some good lightweight and reasonably durable tubes for my (retro?) 26 inch bikes. I don’t wish to run tubeless on these bikes. I used to use the Performance Lunarlight tubes, but apparently these are no longer made, and I am now depleted from my stock. As 26” is a less embraced standard these days, good 26” kit seems too be more difficult to come by.

    Does anyone have some good suggestions for a lightweight 26” (1.75 – 2.25), and reasonably durable tubes?

    Regards,
    Bernard

    I too used to stock up on tubes every once in a while. My go to for resupply were Performance and QBP. QBPs house brand, Q tubes, have a good variety of sizes and "thorn proof". They're around $6-7 and any shop could order them for you or buy them online, I use Universal.

    Revoloop and tubolito? God damn, $27-38 for tubes? They better be the end all be all of tubes, like NEVER have to buy tubes again for that price.

    I've always had good luck with Continental tubes.

    Presta or Schrader?

    But, yeah the r2 link above is a good list showing Conti and Schwalbe options in different weights. If Schrader, the full threaded valve stems on the Conti and Schwalbe tubes are very satisfying.
