FAQ: How To Determine Bike Tube Size?

Will a 26 inch tube fit a 700c tire?

It’ ll work fine. It ‘could’ work if the 700c tube diameter is similar to the 26 inch. Some 700c are quite small, and some 26 are very large. Another concern is the size of the hole for the valve stem.

Does inner tube width matter?

No, tubes and tires don’t need to match exactly. Tubes are made from butyl rubber which can stretch. Bike inner tubes will accommodate a limited range of sizes. Larger tubes may be more susceptible to getting pinched between the tire and rim.

Will a 29 inch tube fit a 700c?

So a 29 inch MTB tube will have the same diameter as a 700c road wheel, while a 27.5 inch tube will be the same diameter as a 650b road wheel.

Can you use 1.5 Tire 1.75 tube?

The diameter 1.5″, 1.75″,1.95″ etcetera have tubes which will fall into the range, ie, tire = 26″ x 1.75″ so you can use a tube in the range of 1.5″ – 1.75″.

Is 26 inch the same as 700c?

A 26 inch, or a 650c wheel is about 1 inch smaller (about 2 inches smaller with road slicks) in diameter than a 700c. Some people think that because 700c wheels are the ‘standard’ for road bikes, they must be better.

Is a 28 inch wheel the same as 700c?

The wheel sizes 28”, 700C and 29er or 29” all refer to the same rim size: ETRTO 622. The tyres can differ, but the 28”, 700C and 29er are all the exact same rim diameter. The 700 markings will be followed by the width in mm, and the 28 or 29 markings will be followed by the width in inches.

Is the inner tube the same size as the tyre?

The size is almost always written somewhere on the sidewall of the tyre. Inner tubes typically state a wheel diameter and width range for which they will work, e.g. 26 x 1.95-2.125″, indicating that the tube is intended to fit a 26 inch tyre with a width of between 1.95 inches and 2.125 inches.

Can I use a smaller diameter inner tube?

Yes, you can, as long as you don’t go more than one size smaller, or the differential is not too extreme. A 1.25 in a 1.5 is fine. A 1.25 in a 2.25 is likely to have issues with flats. Your LBS will have tubes.

Will a 28 inch tube fit a 700C?

As I understand it, a 28″ tyre fits 700c wheels and vice versa, a 27″ tyre wo’nt fit a 700c rim. A 700c inner tube will fit a 27″ wheel (i’m guessng probably a 28″ wheel too).

How many inches is a 700C inner tube?

Will a 1.75 tube fit a 1.95 tire?

Will a 2.125 tire fit a 1.75 rim?

Will A 2.125 Tire Fit On A 1.75 Rim? Though this compatibility is dependent on your bike frame, all things being equal, a 2.125 tire will fit in nicely with a 1 75 rim.

Can you put any width tires on same rim?
