How do I know the size of an inner tube?

To choose the right size tube, you need to consider three major criteria: the size of your wheel, the width of the tire and the type of valve.

- The wheel size

First of all, the tube must perfectly cover the circumference of your tire. So you need to know the diameter of the wheel and choose a model of the same size. This varies depending on the type of bike: road, touring or mountain bike. To find out, simply look at the reference number usually indicated on the side of the tire. For example, for a tire marked 700 x 28 C, you should choose a 700 mm or 28 inch tube. These two numbers indicate the same diameter, but in two different units. Generally, for road bikes, the tire size can be 600C, 650C or 700C.

- Tire width

After selecting the right size, you now need to find the right width. Some road bike tires are wide while others are narrow. It is therefore important to make sure that your tube is compatible with the cross section of your wheel. If your tire is larger than the width of the tube, once inflated, the tube will stretch too much and eventually explode. On the other hand, if it is too wide, it may bend in the tire. This can cause a flat tire or an uneven tire surface.

Road bike sections are typically 18mm to 25mm. The thinner it is, the less effort you put into it. For Gravel, the tire sections are 25 mm to 45 mm. It needs grip and strength for comfort.

- The type of valve

The valve is a part screwed to the inner tube that is used for inflation or deflation. There are several types, but the most common on the market are the Presta and Schrader types. The Presta valve is also known as the small valve or French valve. With a diameter of 6 mm, these long and thin valves are the most common on road bikes. The Schrader valve is also known as the auto valve or big valve. Shorter and wider with a diameter of 8 mm, it is the same valve as the one on car tires. It is usually mounted on mountain bikes.

Repairing and protecting the inner tube

Now that you've mastered the choice of tube, let's talk about the accessories needed to repair or protect it. There are various tricks to reduce the risk of a puncture. Among them, there are the anti-puncture strips. This is a kind of adhesive tape that protects the inner tube from possible punctures and increases its life. To repair a punctured inner tube, you need the right materials such as a patch or a patch. They allow you to quickly cover holes or tears. You can then resume and enjoy your bike rides.
