Here in DC the price seems to range from $4 to $7. Seems a bit steep for an item that costs the shop less than $1.
About $4.50 (nm)PEDDLEFOOT

Jenson USA sells the tube you mentioned for $2 or a pack of ten for $17. http://www.jensonusa.com/store/product.asp?number=42001

This site was recently voted best online merchant by MTBR. They do mostly MTB stuff but they have some road stuff too. The road stuff is surprisingly cheap.

Hey Scot

Long valve Bontrager tubes are on sale at Penn right now for $2.33 each. They're not the light weight model but still a good seatbag tube.
Thanks for the tipScot_Gore
Aug 6, 2003 9:13 AM
I've had bad luck with the light weight tubes so don't use them in anyway.

Thanks

But I wait for them to go on clearance and then buy lots of them. The last bunch I got were Kenya's (sp?) at EMS when they closed a store. I've also gotten them online for $3.00/tube.

$2.99 at a small shop in Clovis, CA. Anyone beat that price?Ken of Fresno

Bike World is a small shop in Clovis that has standard presta valve tubes for $2.99. Why pay double at a "fancy" bike shop? I like to support the little guys anyway.
