    Big Apple Users, did you specifically choose a particular tube?

    I'm acquiring a second wheel set that will allow me to have a dedicated set for my Big Apples. I am currently just using Bontrager tubes from LBS.

    Did anyone explicitly choose a specific tube to match to their Big Apples?

    I know tubes are pretty generic but with all the specialization out there, was just curious if anyone had any feedback on a specific tube.

    I didn't see this over the weekend, but no I don't use any fancy tubes. I also ran them tubeless for about a year without any problems.

    Thinking about it, I'm probably running a 1.75"-2.125" tube, even though I have the 2.35s. (but I also run 26er tubes on my 29er, so I tend not to sweat that stuff).

    I ran mine for 6k miles tubeless. Never put a tube in one.
    You have no excuse for driving to work
    (unless you don't have studded tires)
    (no excuse for that either)

    Nope. Skinny 26" tubes I have to get from REI or Amazon because they don`t carry them in my supermarket. For fat ones (2.0 inch) I just grab a Bell or whatever they stock when I buy groceries.
