    The gotta-declutter Waltworks summer tube sale!

    I have a terrible tube hoarding disorder, where at one point I think there was $20k worth of tubing in my racks. I've finally moved past the denial stage and realized that I probably don't need this many tubes, so see if you might want some!

    All of these are True Temper (RIP) NOS items, unblemished and uncut, in perfect condition. I'm asking 1/2 to 1/3 of their original MSRP.

    -TK270917. This is a heat treated 34.9mm downtube (750mm long) that was used for some sizes of Gary Fisher Ferrous 29er frames. It's 9/5/8 butting (which is sweet) with the upper .9mm butt 150mm long (leave this at the top) and the .8mm lower butt 70mm long. Great tube for a variety of small to medium mountain bikes as well as gravel bikes. $10 each.

    -HOXPLAT13. 34.9 x 740 x 8/5/8. Butts are roughly 80/100mm long (I can't find the print online anymore so I measured a couple to check). This is another fine choice for lighter duty mountain bikes and gravel bikes. $15 each.

    -HOXPLAT09. 34.9 x 691 x 7/4/7. Looking to build a stiff road or gravel bike? Weight weenie (small) mountain bike? Here's your tube. It's no good for modern slack/long mountain bikes, of course, but it's a great option for lots of other things. $12 each.

    Want a bunch of tubes? I have something like 30 of each of these and I'm happy to give you a bulk price.

    Hi mtb1983, I'm not trying to elbow in on Walt here, but I have a few HOXPLAT08 tubes that I can part with. Same wall and OD, 40mm shorter than HOXPLAT07. They're 580 OAL, 60/51/321/38/110 butt profile. $30 ea.

    Give me a call if those work for you. I'll be in the orifice Monday 8/25

    Hmmm for the frames I am planning I think the shorter PLAT08 might be a little bit too short.

    I will let you know if that changes. Thx for the offer.

    If you have any of the HOXPLAT13 and TK270917 I would like some. I'd take 3 of each, if you have that many, but let me know what you have.

    Thanks!
