Rear Tire tube?

I had a nail in my rear tire. I plugged it for the time being but it's still leaking through the spokes. Anyone know if it has a tube? Seems weird if so. Would also need the size.

Yes, the wheels contain inner tubes. You'll have to patch the tube or get a new one.

I would suggest to convert to tubeless since you already have a puncture. The Outex conversion system is tried and proven among other spoked wheel bikes, easy to install, and would be a good corrective action to prevent future occurrences.

Or get your friendly Tyre shop to pop a new (Generic non triumph supplied tube) in for a tenner if the old one cant be patched.

No part number. Tubes are sold to fit the tire size.

For ease of checking tire pressure and adding air , ask for a tube with a 90 degree elbow.

Youíll need one of the top 2 for REAR tires. TR-87 has 90degree valve stem. TR-4 has straight stem. The other two are too small for back tire, but fit the front.

90 degree elbows look ugly to me. I like regular TR4.

I donít think I would trade a tube for a possible leak at each spoke with that kit. Thatís just my opinion.
