Having road bike tubes on hand for your bicycle can help you deal successfully with a sudden flat. When you puncture a tube and it cannot be repaired, a replacement tube will have you riding again in no time. Several different types and models of road bike tubes are available. Make sure any tube you purchase will fit your bike tire properly. There are different measurements for tires. The sidewall of your bicycle tire will have its size imprinted on it. You then can match the road bike tube to the size of the tire. Most road bike tubes will fit a few different tire sizes, which is convenient. You also need to match the type of valve in your current tire to the tube you’re purchasing. Bikes use either Presta or Schrader valves. For a road bike, Presta style valves are the most common.
