Inner tube recommendations?

Recommended Posts

I am a cycling enthusiasts and planning to attend a racing completion which is due in the next month. So, I started looking for bike tubes online which are ideal for racing. I found a site https://gearbikesreview.com/best-bike-tubes/ which is highly resourceful in terms of different types of bikes. But, this site cannot suggest me tubes particularly useful for racing. Then, I found another site https://www.thegeekycyclist.com/best-things/bike-tubes/ where I found some good quality tubes. But, to my utter helplessness, this too cannot suggest me  tubes which is perfect for racing. Can anyone suggest me bike tubes which are suitable for racing?

If you are mountain bike racing tubeless tires are the way to go provided you have tubeless compatible rims. Road racing is a mixed bag as far as tubeless but I would go with some lightweight tubes if you don't want tubeless. Any good bike shop should be able to help you out.

Hi Bud,
This is James Jordan. I use image and user name (benriddle) here as my profile since I am a fan of the guy. Please note that cycling is my favorite free time activity. I seek advice here from other people due to my lack of ideas about ideal bike tubes for racing.

I thought it was going to be a thread about what size inner tubes fit the grips of various pistols. 🙃

I did too.  People always talk about using inner tubes as grip sleeves but they never say what size tube to use.  It’s most vexing.
