Specialized tubes

Postby ahsatb » Wed May 23, 2007 09:04 am

Hi all

Sorry, im being a bit of an idiot! I just bought a Spes Rockhopper Pro and want to get some spare tubes. The set up on the bike is:

FRONT TYRE Specialized Fast Trak, 26x2.0", DC, 120TPI, aramid bead
REAR TYRE Specialized Fast Trak, 26x2.0", DC, 120TPI, aramid bead
TUBES Specialized schraeder valve

I've looked on wiggle, but I'm not sure which tube is the right one for my bike on this page.

Would really appreciate some help.
Cheers

26x1.5-2.2 car valve (which is schraeder).

Since you've got 26x2.0 tyres and want a schraeder valve.

Not entirely sue how to explain how you work it out, though. You just go for the one that's the right size...

Ahhh...ok - it was the one I thought. Good stuff - I'm not quite a stupid as I think. Thanks ever so much.

Yeah, 26" is obvously the diameter of the wheel, which has to be right.
- Then 2.0 is the diameter of the crosssection of the tyre (ie, how wide it is) which has to be roughly right, but can be within a range.

And car-type = Schraeder and visaversa. And is just down to personal choice and the pump you have.
