    Looking for inexpensive tubes

    any advice, either locally or online. Don't have time to do the research myself.

    Willing to spend between $2.30 and $2.40 a tube (any cheaper, and you get crap, and can't afford anything more than $2.40). Please be as detailed as possible:
    1. Address and phone number (and directions) if local
    2. Website address if online
    3. Specific brand and stem length
    4. As many online reviews of said brands
    5. Shipping costs to Phoenix for a order of 10, 20, and 30 tubes

    Thanks in advance.

    Have you tried working with any LBS? They get price breaks for buying in bulk, plus the LBS may cut a deal just for buying in bulk as well.

    Huh? DH? Are these round? Can you do me a favor, and measure from the absoulte center and let me know what the circumference is of each tube. I need the exact circumference for EACH, not just one. This is extremely important. If they fit, I can pay you $1.20 each, as since I'm assuming you're not a local business, there is very little overhead for you.

    I know exactly what you are inquiring about and have a source. Please deposit $2.00 per tire in to my pay-pal account. I will let your freight company come and pick them up.

    cheapest and best tubes are NO tubes

    1) no address, online store only. Phone: (800) 774-2376
    2) Website: http://www.pricepoint.com/detail/173...-Tube-29er.htm
    3) Brand: PricePoint 26/29'er (they are stretchy and can be used for either). My stem length is 90mm.
    4) Reviews can be found HERE
    5) Shipping is $5.95 for any quantity up to 1,000

    These tubes are 29 cents over your budget but I think if we started a collection we could come up with 29 cents, maybe.
