I bought this as a replacement for our venerable Phil and Teds Sport push chair where the inner tube had corroded and failed. It does the job but let me state it is a 12.5 1/2 2.25 NOT a 12.5 1.75 2.25 which is the most common size of buggy tube. It will fit Phil and Teds but it's a bit big. Also, the write up at time of purchase and writing specificaly states European manufacturer but the tube is proudly emblazoned 'made in China'. If this is important to you, then you'll need to look elsewhere. Bent valve is fairly standard in a tube this size and comes with locking valve nuts if required. It's OK, but trading on the Raleigh brand name suggests a quality the product cannot live up to. Quick delivery from Amazon marketplace trader Cyclaire though.
