    29er tube?
    What tubes are compatible with a Gravity G29? Will any 29 inch tube do? What are some cheap purchase options if I can wait?

    Any 29er tube will do. Check with your LBS, sometimes you can get a discount if you buy in bulk. One shop here does buy 2, get the 3rd half price.

    Yep, any 29er tube will be fine. Just make sure you get the right valve type, presta or schrader.

    You could actually use a 26" tube in a pinch, only thing you have to look out for is to use the right size/width, so if you've got 2.2" tyres, you don't want to use a tube for 1.5" tyres, as they just don't stretch that way much.

    ive always used 26" tubes on my 29ers but use 700c specific tubes if im running 700c tires.

    aLL TUBES GET THINNER AS THEY STRETCH, AND THAT CAUSES THEM TO BE A LITTLE WEAKER.....BUT NOT MUCH.

    48mm is the length of the valve stem.

    If you have the Schrader valve (as shown on the Gravity page), that tube should work.
