    Inner Tube Question: Michelin Aircomp ultralight

    MICHELIN AIRCOMP ULTRALIGHT ROAD inner tube says 18/23C tire it will work with on package. Is it possible to use with size 25 tires? Upgrading to newer rims that are the wider type which only handle 25 on up for tire size.

    Thanks

    use a torque wrench

    at 70g it's really only medium weight in the WW scheme of things, where 100g is normal and 50g is really light.

    I wouldn't worry too much.

    There's sometimes a buggy.
    How many drivers does a buggy have?
    One.
    So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
    and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.

    I use 19-23 Tubes in 33mm tires. 25mm is most certainly no problem.

    Don't take me work for it though, blow up the tube outside the tire as see for yourself. Some real crappy tubes will blow at the seem pretty quick but most half decent ones go way beyond what they say.

    I've only got 20,000 miles on that setup so I can't tell how well they will work in the long term, but so far, so good.
