Inner tubes

I probably won't use it. I didn't know what I was getting. They are huge stiff thick butt rubber tubes. You had better not get thorns. I bet they are extremely durable.

The picture as of June 14 is of a regular tire tube. The one that arrived is HUGE. It is about 4 times as big as a regular tire tube and weighs about 21 Oz/600 gr. Yes, that is 5 oz more than 1 pound. On the bright side, they look really tough.

    Comments about Kenda Thorn Resistant Presta Valve Tube:

    Bought 2 as a emergency spare. Both of them did NOT last not even a mile riding. Both valves separated from the rubber. I thought I scored on this one cause its on sale. What a headache. Won't buy it again. Jenson wont take it back not even for store credit because they said its over 60 days of purchased. I'm glad its just a small purchase but I'll be more careful buying high ticket item from them.

    I was a loyal customer for life.

            I did not buy these tubes for there lightweight, I got them because they are supposed to be thorn ressistant. I was only 3.5 miles into my ride when a hissing sound came from the front tire. The valve came off. After hauling the bike home and I was replacing the front tire and the same hissing sound came from the back one. I had bought 4 originally so I replaced both damaged tubes. 2 hours later the same thing happened, the valve came off and guess what? an hour later the fourth one did the same thing. I don't know if the tubes have been stored for a very very very long time at the warehouse and started to rot or what? DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.

                    I bought these because we have a hard time finding presta valve tubes in our town. I thought it was a good price and thorn resistant- heck yes! Unfortunately, when I received them, they were HUGE. They would fit a 26" tire but they were heavy and too big to fit into my hydration pack where I keep an extra tube in case of a flat on the trails. I sent my husband to return them and it cost us more to send them back than it did to purchase them (should have just tried to sell them online). Only buy these if you want big thick tubes that add weight to your wheels and you don't want to carry an extra one in case of a flat.

                      One tube (on rear) ripped after 20+ miles, probably because it spun inside the tire and the value became tilted. The front tube must be re-centered and re-pumped before every ride. Back to Schrader tubes - fortunately these were on sale, so only a few dollars were lost. And no Kenda tubes - I thought these would be best for the Small Block 8s I bought.

                          These tubes tear at the stems. I got one ride in for about 20 minutes and the next day when I got the bike out the tire was flat. I put the same tube in and the same thing happened.

                          Bought these as a possible alternative to Slime Tubes. Have not used, but the tubes are super thick/heavy. The box they come in is double the size of typical tube boxes so they don't fit in a seat pack and would take up a lot of room in the Camelback. Don't know when, if ever, I will use these.
