    Tire question

    I just bought slicks (700X38C) for my GF 29er. Do I have to change the innertube that I used with my knobbies? Or will it be to big to fit under the slicks?

    Depends on your current tubes, obviously. If you have 2.1-2.3 tubes, you just have to try it to whether it will work. Major PITA I suspect.
    Ideally a tube, barely inflated, matches the width of the tire closely, but without any wrinkles. Some will tell you they swear by 18-23mm tubes in their 38mm tires. Like Jackass, don't try this at home!
