    TUBES

    Post by Mathew_3066 on Mon Nov 30, 2015 7:15 pm

    Last weekend I realised I lost some air from my rear tyre so before heading out sunday I wanna change the tube on the bike.

    I wanna fit some mousse's in the new year but with xmas and all that for the time being would fitting a 120/90/18 tube into a 180/40/18 tyre be okay?

    Thought i'd check before buying one tomorrow morning.

    Thanks guys Very Happy

    A 21" 90/90 will fit in any rear 18" & will get you home Very Happy
    If your buying one tomorrow go for a heavy duty 18" ....little bit more money but worth it in the long run.
