by fromNot a good buy The valves on these tubes stick and are difficult to inflate - particularly with a CO2 cartridge. The tubes also puncture easily and the valve stem separates from the tube. At one time, Novara made a good tube, but lately not so.

by fromProne to Flats! I'm a big REI fan, but these tubes are poorly made. I have gone through 3 in a week, all with leaks where the stem sealed to the tube. No punctures, just leaks at the seal. Fortunately, there were no catastrophic flats, or downhill wobblies.

by fromTHESE ARE DEFECTIVE I have had several of these break right where the stem connects to the tube. I happens front and rear, and it's NOT my rims. They only last a couple hundred miles before failing spectacularly, especially during the inflation process when I'm attaching/removing the pump. REI needs to know about this manufacturing defect, I plan to tell them.

by fromDon't Bother! The tubes are horrible... As a disclaimer, I just started road cycling about 6 months ago, so I'm no expert, but I'm quite sure this isn't the quality I should expect in tubes. I've used 2 of these tubes and purchased 4 more that will now be going back to REI. The first one I installed after getting a flat in a different brand tube. I inflated it to the recommended PSI and about 5-10 minutes later, the tube blew! I hadn't touched my bike or done anything with it from the time I inflated to the time it blew... It looked like it blew on the seem, but I gave the benefit of the doubt to the tube, and installed another one, this time inflating it a bit less than what I had before (on the low end of the recommended PSI). I just returned from a "ride" that was cut quite short by this tube. I stayed on flat land near my house just to see how the tube would react, and when all felt fine, I ventured out to attempt my real ride. I kid you not that about 50 feet in, on the first "climb" (which is a slight incline to leave my neighborhood) the tube blew! Rather than replacing the tube with a tube of the same brand, I went back to my house to write this review and prepared to go for a run instead. These tubes are worthless, as far as I'm concerned. I'm disappointed REI is still selling something of such poor quality after so many reviews have appeared dating back a few years. Don't even risk buying these, go somewhere else, or find something online with better reviews. These tubes are discouraging.

by fromLacks relibility I purchased 4 tubes at my local REI and I dont know if Novara had a bad run or what, but im 2/4 out of the box. One split along a seam after inflating and another had a puncture against the valve stem. On my third and it seems to be holding up fine the fourth is still questionable. I personally dont think a few grams of weight matter, I would reccomend other name brand tubes with a better history in tubes like specialized, michelin, conti. ect...

by fromworks fine - most of the time Bought several [...] - one recently broke off (at the tip of the stem) when I was trying to take the pump head off it (and I was pulling straight up).

by fromLightweight aka Thin I use these for road biking. The tubes seem lighweight and as a result may be a little thinner and therefore could puncture easier. Have not had a flat with these yet. My only puncture resulted from trying to change tires on my bike, so you have to be careful. I usually keep the pressure almost as high as the recommended maximum. It seems to help avoid excessive flats. I like them. They work fine and look better than others.

by fromGood lightweight tube Great tube. I've ridden over 2000 miles and haven't had a problem with these tubes. Lightweight, great stem length. Overall a great tube for the price.
