I am looking for a place to buy these light weight (55g) butyl tubes. All my google searches took me to Europe. Any leads in the US?
Thanks

Anyone who sells Conti Tires should be able to get them for you. Look on Continental's site for shops that sell their tires in your area and ask them to order them for you.

Try emailing the US Distributor, Bike Mine, and tell them where you live, and ask them who they have in your area with accounts, and you can ask them who sells them mailorder as well. The address is info@bikemine.com

I bought some Performance lunar-lite tubesconfig

The lunar-lite tubes weigh in at 49 gms. Just put them on Fri and on my first ride on it got a flat tire at just 10 kms out. Didn't have a spare tube or patch kit with me either (don't usually get flats). Had to call the service vehicle (my wife).
Anyone have any luck with these tubes?
Are you blaming a tube for a flat??spookyload

I find it impossible to blame a road tube for a flat. Either the glass/thorn puctured your tire or it didn't. The only tube that would differ are the slime tubes or thorn proof tanks. As for pinch flats, you need more air. The only fault I have had with a tube was a case of Kenda Ultralight tubes I bought. Five of the ten tubes had seam seperation at the valve stem after a week of riding. That I do blame on the tube.
Not necessarily blaming the tube...config

...but if the tube is built too thin and light maybe it isn't tough enough to withstand otherwise normal wear.
