How often do you change your tubes?

10 posts in this topic

Do you change them every time you change your tire? Does riding on the street (60mph+) wear a tube more?

I bet that street riding does wear them more.

I usually change the tube every third or fourth time. It depends on what it looks like when I change the tire. Lately I've been getting pinch flats often enough that it's not an issue.

I do HD Tubes, every few tire changes. It depends what the tubes look like as stated by cleonard.

dirt racers like to do it every tire change, but I'm in the opinion of what the tubes look like.

Only if it's really chafted (rashed)sometimes you can't put enough baby powder in there! Or the stem is rusted bad.

I change em with every tire change IF they are unknown's i.e. replacing tires on an old rim, on a older bike for the first time

- otherwise I inspect and reinstall.
