Hi guys so I'm done with my bike I'm getting my Sunday freecoaster wheel sometime next week I forgot to get some tube so my question is would the bell tubes from walmart works and perform as the same as any of the dans tube. I just don't want to order just tube and pay six dollars for shipping and I don't want to wait two to five days for deviley I don't need anything else.

why not go out to your local bike/skate shop and buy some, don't bother ordering them, paying $6 for shipping is a rip, You'll save a lot of money just going out and buying them, i buy mine from my local shop,(QuickieMart rep!) for $2 each.

Stock up. Most local bike shops charge around 5-8 for a regular tube.

Honestly Dan's has been the cheapest I have come across in years, even when I worked in a shop.

Just for fun, let's do math (NEVER thought I would say that)

Dans-Tubes are $2.95 each. Buy 4 of em, $11.80. 10% off code saves 1.19. Brings it to 10.61. Add say 10 bucks shipping, we come up to 20.61.

Walmart-Last I bought one, tubes were 5.99-6.99. We will go low side. Total for 4, $23.96. $3.35 CHEAPER through Dans.

Bike shop 7.99 at my locals. $33.96. $13.35 CHEAPER through Dans.

So for your average shop, DANS is cheaper, even with shipping, assuming like 6-10 for shipping of 4 tubes. I bought 3 tubes and a brake part and it was around 10 bucks with free shipping.

Walmart tubes are fine. Some brands are very thin so i always wrap my new tubes in a cut up old tube for double protection.

Sourcebmx.com do 5 Kenda inner tubes for £10, absolutely no idea what it would be in dollars but worth a look maybe.

Try electrical tape. run it across the bottom of the rim normally if I rremember right it took three maybe four time to cover the rim. That way you wont worry about your rim strip moving to the side and spoke poking a hole in tube.

Run at least 2 good, legit rimstrips and a legit flat liner for a good measure. If you don't have or can't get legit flat liners, run one, two, or even three cut up old tubes wrapped up around your tube. Apart from that, it shouldn't matter what tube you run, unless you have a rim like the Gsport Birdcage with an offset valve hole that will constantly cut your tube's valve stem. If that makes you paranoid, wrap some tape around the bottom of the tube valve stem.

I ride a plaza, and rarely street, but this is great advice for street sessions!

Baby powder in the tire covering the tube is the best thing i've ever started doing

I always use Bell tubes. Any tubes you get at the shops around here are like 8 bucks a pop and are shitty quality. Danscomp has good tubes for cheap, but unless you're ordering a bunch, that's silly.

All that does it to prevent the tube from sticking to the tire after prolonged use of the tube, right? Tubes stick, but no one should even care about that. lol It's not like the tube and tire are seized together.

I do that too. I think it just makes it smoother to tuck the tube in. I've also NOT done it and been fine too.
