Michelin Airstop Tubes
by Anonymous user on 15/11/2019

After so many times of tyres going down with seemingly no punctures, to find air is slowly seeping from removable valves, OK when tightened up properly, but then if you have pumps like the Lezyne ,screw on adaptor which is the best type, and then the valve stays in the pump adaptor on unscrewing, the tyre then goes down obviously, then you have to find your tools to remove the valve from the pump., meanwhile you run out of time to meet up with you club for the Sunday run.(This happened to me) You dont need removable valves the Michelin are fixed so no problems, If you do damage a valve the tube is scrap but how often does that happen, Get these Michelis highly recomended. Those that say patches dont stick ... the tube surface should be sanded lightly first, and the patch needs to cure for a few hours. Carry a spare tube and fix punctures properly at home.

Inner Tubes Size Guide

 

Inner Tubes Guide

What Size Inner Tube Do I Need?

Follow these three simple steps to find the right size inner tube for your bike.

Wheel size diameter on tyre sidewall for correct inner tube sizing

1. Wheel Size

Inner tubes are made to fit specific wheel sizes, so you need to know what size the wheel on your bike is.

The easiest way to do this is by looking at the tyres on your bike. On the sidewall you'll see a combination of digits such as:

700 x 28c (road bike wheel) or 27.5 x 2.4 (mountain bike wheel)

It’s the first figure that shows the diameter of the wheel or the wheel size.

The next figure is tyre width which is the other measurement you need to know.

Wheel size diameter on tyre sidewall for correct inner tube sizing

2. Tyre Width

Inner tubes are designed to fit a range of tyre widths, so the next thing you need to know is the width of your tyre.

This is shown in the second number that’s printed on the side of the tyre.

700 x 28c (road bike wheel) or 27.5 x 2.4 (mountain bike wheel)

When choosing an inner tube you need one with a width range that covers your tyre width as well as exactly matching the size of the wheel. See the tables below for examples.

Note: Sometimes metric sizes are shown as c instead of mm. This is just a different way of saying the same thing. A 25c tyre is the same width as a 25mm tyre.

3. Valve Type

There are two types of inner tube valve; Shrader and Presta. The easiest way to see which one you need is to look at the tube on your bike.

Schrader Valve

Schrader Valve

Easily identified by the 'car type' stubby profile.

These valves are often found on entry-level hybrid, mountain and kids bikes which run on lower tyre pressures.

It is worth noting that Schrader valves require a slightly larger hole in the rim. This means that you can use Presta valve tubes on a Schrader compatible wheel rim but not the other way around.


Presta Valve

Presta Valve

These have a long and narrow profile. They have a central core you unscrew before inflating the tube.

Presta valves are often used on road bikes which run at higher tyre pressures as well as mid to high-end mountain bikes.

These valves come in a range of lengths. Longer valves are designed for use with deep section aero rims.



ETRTO bike tyre sizing can be found on tyre sidewall

My tyre size looks different - ETRTO Sizing

Sometimes tyre size on the sidewall of your tyre is shown in the ETRTO format like this 54-559 or 23-622. ETRTO size tyres are the same size as Imperial / Metric tyres, it’s just that the measurements are shown differently.

All our inner tubes are listed in Metric or Imperial sizing but you can use the table below to convert your ETRTO size to Imperial for MTB tyres or Metric for road bike tyres.

The Benefits Of Self-Sealing Inner Tubes

Punctures are inevitable. Instead of having to lug around spare inner tubes with you, you can opt for a self-sealing inner tube. These bike inner tubes are delivered with tube sealant already inside. When you get a puncture the sealant will plug the gap so you can keep riding.
