Sorry just another quick one please.

My Ten's tyre sizes are "3.00 - 21"  Front and " 130-80-18" Rear.

Does this matter if I get the HD Tubes, or can I just order 21 and 18 '??

Also, where to get this from please, seems like the Heidenau Rubber ones are the best, so that's what I would like.

A Member Supplier would onbiously be 1st prize, would like to support in here.

THANKS

It will only take the prevention of one puncture to make them worth while and you will probably never even know.

They are for peace of mind, that can be expensive sometimes.

If you are carrying them as spares then buy normal. HD are extremely hard to change when punctured in the bush. Also Michelin is agood brand and repairable with patches

Those prices - bliksem  :eek7: - and just recently I gave 2 brand new heavy duty tubes away (21 and 18 inch) - anyway - hopefully the new owner appreciates it.  :thumleft:

Have changed tubes many times off road and find no difference in effort between HD and normal tubes.

petri I think you can just fit the normal 21 and 18.

I normally buy mine from Tracmac, I dont think Heidenhaus tubes are better than Michelin
you can also check bikegear if flyingbrick doesnt have

Never mind the HD tubes, I have been running UHD tubes in my 990 at normal pressures for a few years now... last time I had a puncture was before I ran UHD tubes  :thumleft:

Not sure where you price these but I pay around R900 for Michelin UHD for BOTH wheels.

Concerning speed, I had both wheels balanced when UHD were fitted and even up to 200kmh no vibration/shake.... way to go imo (bar tubeless) unless you like spending your arvie on your knees wrenching rims while sweating in the dust... ;D

My tyre sizes are front 3.00 - 21

..........Would a Heidenau 140/80/18 also fit on the 130/80/80 size??

And then what the HELL do I buy for the front, they talk about 90/90 - 21 sizes and all that?? (edit - looks like mine is same as the other Tenere, 90/90/21, so sorted here).

PLEASE try help me here, I want to order but dunno what.

Looking at 3,5 - 4mm UHD tubes, Heidenau or Michelin, in above sizes.

Petri, you buy tubes according to your rim/tyre sizes. If you just ask for a 18" tube, you could end up with a tube for a rear wheel on a DT125, or a 990, which are both 18".

Het hom so Dan. Maar op my voor tyre is die size " 3.00 - 21". Maar die ander Tenere se voorband lyk redelik identies, sy size op die tyre is " 90/90 - 21", so ek dink daai size is reg, ek kan hom so bestel.

My agter tyre is 'n " 130/80/18 ", maar ek sien NERENS daai size HD (Michelin of Heidenau) tube nie, die enigste wat ek sien is 140/80/18

.......dit was my concern, of daai agter tyre size tube (140) reg sal wees in my tyre (130).

Reggekom baie dankie aan almal vir Raad en Advies.

Het 130/80 (regte size) agter tube gekry, Michelin UHD, hoop hy werk OK.

Supplier het nie voor ook Michelin UHD gehad nie, het toe Heidenau HD gekry vir voor by ander Supplier.

Ek hoop om binnekort so 5/6/7/7 dae se solo trippie met die ou XT te kan doen, en puncture fixes en kits en tools en pompies is NIE deel van my beplanning nou nie. Gaag maar anyway gravel en hier en daar seker maar oor 'n klippie of iets ry, so ek dink ek sal OK wees.

Maar ja, thanks almal - ek weet nou so 1% meer van bike bande af as 'n week terug >:D

Nou nie meer relevant vir jou nie, maar uit al ons bike trips, sover ek kan onthou, was meeste pap wiele aan die voorkant.

Maak sin want oor die algemeen is die agter groter knobs etc.

Ek het nou mousse voor en agter maar gaan agter n tube gooi.

As die voor mousse die helfte so lank hou as Poskitt s'n, is ek happy.
