10/$20 at pricepoint.com. i've been using nashbar tubes for a few years with no problems.

TIA

Have used them in the past on the road bike, and installed them on the spare mtb wheelset (slick tires). Seem sturdy - never any problems.

Sturdy, yes. Thick, yes. Heavy, YES. Flat less, maybe. But at 10 for $20 - sign me up.
Yes. they were fine, but...Sintesi

as stated above thick and heavy for tubes. I like Kenda better for cheapies.

I bought a box of 50 Blackburn MTB tubes for $15 from airbomb a while back. I figured at that price I couldn't go wrong. They're not super light, but they're not horrible either. They seem to last as well as anything else I've used. I've only had one pinch flat so far, and that was plowing into a rock hard enough to endo. Otherwise they seem fine.

Do you give tubes to all of your friends? That seems like a lot of tubes, even if the price was really good.

Do tubes 'age' by sitting on the shelf?

Just curious.

so, under $3 per tube. not a horrible deal! can't be too much heavier than the nashbar tubes, which i suspect are kenda brand/rebadged, anyhow.

thanks again. will report back if they suck.
