Schwalbe AV 13 Schrader Valve Inner Tube - Black Schwalbe
The long teet on these, with the ring that screw down the teet pining it in place against the wheel wall makes filling the tyre a breeze even with fairly poor quality pumps. I had been paying the same to get inner tubes from high street stores and bought one of these on a whim. Weeks later, when I had to refill both tyres with air again, the high street brand inner tube kept retreating into the tyre when I tried to push on the pump, and the seal was poor however the other wheel had one of these in and pumping it was a breeze. Would highly recommend to people still buying El Cheapo high street brand inner tubes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quite dry, 14 Jun 2014
Bought after loving HHhH and having this recommended as a similar vein of history based pseudo-fiction but it is quite slow, dry and unengaging. Not sure if I will finish it..
