Inner tubes cost around £4.50 to £5.00 each in bike shops. The Bike Bus is planning to make a bulk purchase of a standard size of inner tube and offer them to Bike Bus members at a substantially discounted rate. We can obtain 50 tubes for £125.00 (i.e. £2.50 each) from BikePlus (http://www.bikeplus.co.uk/) and plan to make them available to Bike Bus Members at the following rates

     1 to 4       £3.50 each
     5 or more    £3.00 each

The small profit will be used to support Bike Bus activities (e.g. the purchase of Leaders' Badges).

We plan to buy Specialised 700 28-38 tubes with Presta valves. These will fit the following tyres

   * 700 x 28
   * 700 x 32
   * 700 x 35
   * 700 x 38 

The size of your tyre is embossed on its side wall. Note that these tubes are not suitable for very narrow tyres (e.g. 700 x 25 or 700 x 22) and are not appropriate if you favour Schrader valves. In order to make an order worthwhile we need a certain number of people to commit to purchasing tubes. If you are interested I'd be grateful if you could let me know the number of tubes you would like before Thursday 27 January. If enough people respond we will then place an order.
