Tube sizing

Violetta has 700×35 Schwalbe Marathon tyres.  I went to the LBS near my work the other day, and they didn’t have tubes for 700×35, but assured me that a 27 x 1 1/4 tube would do the trick.  I was skeptical, because he didn’t seem all that confident about it, but it turns out he was right.  Here’s an article from Schwalbe themselves, with a handy tube sizing chart.

About Max

I'm an IT nerd who spends much less time on my bike than I'd like. I'm planning a big cycle tour for when I get long service leave (2013). Until then, I keep plodding along at my job and get on my bike when I can. Did I mention I love riding my bike?
