Whether you ride a road bike, mountain bike, BMX bike, commuter bike or scooter, you will need to consider road bike tubes and valve type for your ride. Bike inner tubes and quality bike tyres are your contact point with the road or trail, so you will need the best grip possible. Bike tubes are highly effective at the right pressure, with valve choices that include Presta valves and Schrader valves for optimal inner tube function.

WHAT IS AN INNER TUBE?

An inner tube is a balloon-like structure, which can be inflated and deflated using a valve. The inner tube is like an air-cushion, and when inflated beneath the tyre, it is what provides you with a comfortable, safe ride. Unless you've converted your bike to tubeless tyres, the chances are that your bike has inner tubes. However, with so many wheel and tyre sizes out there, you need to make sure you identify the correct size for your bike.

WHICH INNER TUBE DO I NEED?

Inner tubes come in a range of sizes as well as two main valve types. These are the two key issues to consider when finding the right inner tube.

Size: Inner tubes vary in size depending on the circumference of the wheel and the width of the tyre:

1. Wheel diameter or circumference:Depending on whether your bike is a road bike, touring bike, mountain bike or child's bike, the diameter/circumference of the wheel can vary.
2. Tyre width:To add to the variety, you also have different tyre widths. There are wide road tyres and narrow road tyres - wide downhill mountain bike tyres and narrow cross-country mountain bike tyres.

To ensure that you get the correct size of inner tube for your tyre, check the sidewall of your tyre. Printed onto the tyre you should see something like "700x23c" on a road bike, or "29x1.9" on a mountain bike. The first number refers to the circumference of the wheel - the latter refers to the width of the tyre. If you cannot see the printed text on your tyre anymore through dirt or wear, you can usually find the details on the paperwork that came with your bike at the time of purchase.

Valve: The valve is used to inflate/deflate the inner tube. There are two main valve types available - Schrader and Presta. It is quite easy to identify from looking at your existing tube what kind of valve you have. Presta valves are narrower and longer, while Schrader valves are shorter and fatter (also found on car and wheelbarrow tubes).
