Confused by the size? It fits Brompton tyres!
A: Bear in mind that unlike this Continental tube, some inner tubes don't have a rum nut - that's why we posed the question
The rim nut secures the valve into the rim
Your bike can be ridden perfectly safely without a rim nut
It comes in useful when installing a tyre or attaching a pump - as it helps stop the valve being pushed inside the rim With some rims there may be a rattle/noise if the valve is not fixed - that is why often valves without a rim nut are coated in rubber
The rim nut should only be tightened by hand. Don't tighten the it with pliers, as this could damage your inner tube
The valve cap supplied with the Schwalbe inner tubes should be used
This is especially important with Schrader / car type valves (we know it's against the rules of cycling for roadies to use valves!)
It prevents dirt / water and chemicals from getting inside the valve and causing corrosion and damage - meaning the valve / tube will last longer
We recommend against using tyre levers when installing a tyre and tube, as it can cause damage to the tyre / inner tube or both. It may seem difficult or even impossible at first - but it is just technique, practice and patience
We made the below video to show how to fit without the use of levers - with the toughest to fit tyre
