|OT: do I need to match MTB tube and tire diameters?||Nathan Dushman||5/1/12 4:17 PM|
I'm planning to go mountain biking tomorrow afternoon with coworkers.
My mountain bike doubles as my city bike and it currently has 1.5"
slick tires with appropriately-sized tubes. I'm going to swap out the
tires for 2.2" ones with more tread. If I use the smaller diameter
tubes with the larger diameter tires, am I likely to be sad the first
time I hit a substantial bump?

The tubes probably say exactly what range they're supposed to handle.
Personally I would just grab a second set of tubes.
