It is difficult to give you a price of shipping from the UK, but it is easy for you to do it on the site. The shipping is dynamic and works on quantity, location, weight and product volume. The site will calculate the shipping options for you when you put items in the shopping basket and put in your country and postcode. You are not committed to buy anything at that stage.

Hope that helps.

Ok, registered and I'm ordering a 1690gm Nightrider tire + a bearing pullers, and maybe other things .
Since €/£ is pretty weak, I'm not against a coupon code for my first order

Well, by re-reading my last post, I realize this sounds a little bit like a forced demand because of being asked in a public thread.
Anyway I also just saw that there is already a christmas discount in the web shop, so I won't let you the time to (feel forced to) answer and do my order right now.

Or you could have ordered the parts from funicycle which imports a lot of parts from Roger.

About the nightrider tyre, Roger measured the weight (1690gm) so I am sure to have the last version of it.
I spoke to Romain from cdk but he is pretty much overbooked at the moment and it would have taken to much time to have the actual weight.

Since Roger is the only one who measured the weight of his tyres, and because I also need a crank puller (out of stock everywhere but UDC), I ordered tyre, crank puller and few things from UDC, and other things from CDK (like a HS33 brake for my 29er, a foss 36" tube and other things) at about the same time.

Maybe I'll have the opportunity to test the lighter 36" wheel next week if shipping goes fast.

Did my first Ride with the nightrider from Roger + foss 36" tube.
My whole wheel is about 840gm lighter now, my old Qu-ax 36er is not the same anymore
Riding was easier, and this is a good point cause I have been suffering from ITB syndrome for about 5 weeks now, so I need to reduce the stress on the knees
I tested 50 PSI at first, then 65 PSI, 40, 30 and finaly 20 (which was very weird).
65 PSI was what I liked the most, it is faster, easier, with more control.
The tyre is still ridable at 50, 40 and 30 PSI though.

Unfortunately, the ITB pain forced me to stop after 20 km, but without this tendinitis I would have enjoyed riding all day long.

Would there be any advantage to using a 32" tube from Kent/Walmart in the 36" tires? It's a bit off the radar screen and I don't know if anybody thought to try it yet, or if there would be any weight or durability advantage. Seems it would stretch into a 36 a bit easier than a 29".

I'm using 700CC or 29 tube, it's light, cheap, very easy to get and enough reliable (my current tube has much more than 1000km)
I just have been riding with original 36 tube during the first 3 months after I got my 36, it was 7 years ago
It changed my life on the 36

I don't think there would be much of a point. 29er tubes are not hard to get into the 36, and they are lighter. I ran. 29er tube in my 36 for years without any problems. When I get an excuse to change my 32" tube it will be with a 29. Maybe I should try a 26 in my 32.

We've now wandered pretty far off topic, but I did want to answer that I found the 32" tube to be poor quality, and I got numerous flats with it (often for no apparent reason). I'm running a 29" tube in my 32" tire now. (Problem-free for the past year.)

Back to the thread topic now.

What size 29in tubes are people running in their 36er? I am going to be ordering a new tire and would like to try a 29in tube to make it lighter?

The largest you can get, something that says it will fit a 2.35 tire. I don't think they make DH 29er tubes, but if they did, those would be even better.

I don't think they produce DH tubes in 29" yet but there is more and more 29+ tires meaning tubes for 29x3.0 (Surly from sure and others also I am sure).

The more rubber he stronger when stretched that much.

A dh 29er tube probably wouldn't benefit you much over a standard 36er tube.

A standard 29er works and has worked forever so just stick with that.

Isn't it even better to have a 36er tube with the weight of a 29" but that won't have to be over flexed to fit the rim + the ability to deflate slowly enough to let you come back to home/car if you got a puncture ?
I think the Foss 36er tube worth the extra cost.
