    Vuelta XRP Road Pro wheels

    Anybody have a suggestion for a good lightweight set of tubes that would work well on my Vuelta XRP Road Pro wheels?

    I got a flat the other day and picked up a couple tubes at my LBS, but the valve stem isn't near as long as the Kenda tube that came with the bike. They work, but seem pretty iffy on how little I space I have to get the pump attached. I'm a recent mtb convert, and haven't had a flat in the last 4 years so I've got some learning to do. Here are the specs on the rims:

    Rim: 1186P 27mm (700c)
    Bead: clincher
    Hub: Pro Road
    Bearing: 2x2 precision
    Drilling: 20f/24r
    Pattern: radial / two cross
    Spoke Gauge: 2.8 butted
    Spoke Profile: Aero-bladed
    Nipple: brass
    Quick Release: cro-moly
    Spacing: 130mm
    Color: black

    get any tube with a 42mm stem or longer. look for light tubes 50-65 grams. Bontrager x-lite, Vittoria 55g are examples.
