good tubes for road bikes
A must as a spare to carry on you when you are out on a long ride
This tube seems fine, I have tried the Decathlon cheaper ones and found them to b every prone to punctures.
Would have prefered a locking nut at the valve.
These inner tubes are good quality, based on previous experience, and the multi buy makes them an amazing bargain
I bought two. I took my time and took care fitting. The first one had a flaw in the rubber which when pumped up inside the tyre left a weak area. Solid all around apart from the weak area. Took it off and tried again thinking it was a twist or something. It wasn't. The second tube i inflated before i did anything else and the tube was deformed due to weak and inconsistent rubber. I didn't expect much for the price but i didn't expect to have to throw them into the bin just yet.
bought two, both faulty
Thank you for your feedback. If an innertube is inflated outside of the tyre, it is not necessarily abnormal that it will deform. Inside the the tyre however it is constrained and will not affect your ride. You needn't worry too much about this.
If you are not confident with this product, please feel free to return them to us for a refund or an exchange.

As with any bulk purchase, you need to get it right. I've always favoured un-threaded valve bodies, believing the thread and its knurled lock nut to be redundant and a possible cause of tube to valve joint failure.
Valve length needs to be adequate and unless you use very deep section rims these easily meet most requirements. (I run several bikes with a variety of wheel sets in use)
Tubes should be stored in a dark and dry place, thus ensuring, even after a year or so they remain in good condition.
Excellent value, sensible valve length.
Nothing, just what I needed.
Does excatly whats required for a reasonable price
Quality vs price
If there are threads around the valve so a nut can be screwed on, then it'd be a lot easier to pump up a flat tyre.
No threads around the valve
Compact packaging, easy to transport, easy to use, good value, no problems fitting when I've had a puncture.
