Quick Answer: Can I use a smaller bike tube?

Does the tube have to be the same size as the tire?

The tube should match the tire size diameter closely. However, tires that are close in bead diameter may use the same inner tube. For example, an inner tube for an ISO 630 tire (27-inch) will also fit an ISO 622 (700c) tire.

What size rim does a 26×1 95 tire fit?

All tires of 26″ will fit on a 26″ rim. 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″.

Will a 26 inch tube fit a 700c?

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.

Can you change the size of bike tires?

Bicycle wheels can handle a range of different widths, so it’s not absolutely necessary to replace your tires with one with the exact same width. In fact, there are often advantages to using a tire that is a little wider, as long as your bicycle has adequate clearance to handle the larger size.
