Rear inner tube

Front inner tube spares are easy but finding a rear inner tube is not proving so easy.

Anyone in the UK managed to source or even look for one yet?

Continental ones are advertised on internet but there are non available, even through Continental directly.

A Heidenau one is available in a 4.5 x 18 size that lists 150/70 18 as a correct fitting but I can't find one from a more mainstream manufacturer.

I don't need one but I like to have spares just in case, especially of an odd sized one.

Try here.
I've just bought the Mefo rear tyre for my AT.
They list a tube too.

I've put punctureseal in tubes today and ordered Hiendau 4.5 x 18 spare just in case.
Now I need to find somewhere to fasten tool tube from www.zenoverland.com site mentioned earlier.
Very good site I've not seen before, thank you Welshgar.

I carry one 19 inch tube as a spare it will stretch to 21 inch or squeze into the 18inch rear,make sure you carry axle nut spanners as they do not come in the AT tool kit.

Where did you get the Punctureseal from? Seems a fairly new, or at least low key setup here in the UK...

Cheers

Both very similar products, I believe, but each says theirs is the best.

In cars and tubeless tyres it's brilliant. In tubes it's more limited because a nail in tyre is more likely to rip tube than puncture it but its definitely an extra preventative measure.

Thanks Tinpot.

I have a similar problem with my bicycle tyres - stops thorns etc. but has no chance with anything bigger in tubes.

If you believe the hype they make your tyres last longer - maybe I'll put them in the next set of tyres but not the first set then!

I use similar stuff in my 690 and, this stuff DOES work !! We ride in places here is SA that are riddled with thorn trees that have thorns that will penetrate acerbis hand guards . the only PROBLEM is with balancing the wheels -- Balance first then add the slime , once the tube has slime in it cant be balanced .. But as I am sure.... we all replace the tube with a new set of tyres anyway .
