Tom’s Tips About Using Inner Tubes

By Tom Neale, 1/11/2007

1. Obviously inner tubes aren’t suited for everything. You’ll have to use common sense. For example, they’ll degrade rather quickly when exposed to sunlight continuously.

2. If you get a used inner tube (try to get a new one) be sure that no one has sprayed into it any of the products for temporarily fixing flat tires. They shouldn’t have because this is usually used for tubeless tires, but you never know. This product makes it difficult to use the inner tube and it may be caustic.

3. When you buy an inner tube it will usually come neatly packed in a relatively small package. You’ll never get it back into such a compact shape once you open the package and spread it out.

4. If you need to cut a small section from the inner tube, try to do it from an exposed part of the packaged product, without opening it up completely, so that the rest of it can continue to be stored in a small space.
