    LBS with continential tubes

    I want to get some removable core tubes and continental seems to be the only ones available with this option. Does anybody know of a local LBS that sells these tubes? I don't care if they are road, 29ers, etc. They will be cut out anyways. Let me know, thanks!

    You could also go with schrader valves. They all have a removable core, and don't need an adapter for an air compressor. You may have to drill your rim though.

    EDIT: You won't be able to get a threaded on as a tube, you will have to buy a threaded one from a motorcycle dealer.

    Really don't want to drill them out plus my pump is presta only so I would need to replace that... can't believe nobody carries them locally.. the road versions seem very common online. Maybe I need to call a hardcore roadie shop. Anybody know one?

    Landis on Rural and Warner has them I think. If they don't one of their other stores probably does.

    Just called two of their stores... was told that continental moved over over to the Taiwanese tube manufacturer (from the old German one) so they don't even know if they still make them with a removable core.... ugh. You would think with all the tubeless going on somebody would stock these or buy them direct from the German manufacturer.

    Slime tubes come with removable presta valve cores. Most shops carry them.

    FTR bontrager race tubes have removable cores on them and can be found at slippery pig.... Of course they are 12 each, so ordering continentals is still cheaper if you can wait.
