Tubes

Inner tubes

Once upon a time, bike wheels were made from solid rubber – no punctures, but backsides were hardier then, they had to be. The efforts of Mr John Dunlop, a Belfast vet, produced the first inner tube for his son’s tricycle in 1888 and cycling began to become more popular (and a lot more comfortable).

Carry a spare

But the extra comfort of the pneumatic tyre comes at a price – sometimes they get punctures, and dealing with them is never much fun. You can repair a blown inner tube by the roadside, which takes time and effort, and may not be permanent, but it’s much easier and more reliable to carry a spare.

Buy the best

Your wheels are only as good as your bicycle inner tubes, so it’s good advice to get the best you can afford. We have tubes for all sizes of wheel, from kids’ bikes and BMX bikes to skinny, lightweight racers and chunky mountain bike inner tubes too. And if removing your wheel is too much trouble, you can opt for self-repairing inner tubes, which come with a special sealant you pour into the valve if you get a flat – quick and easy to repair in seconds.
