Inner tubes for 700x40c tyres

For those of you that use cyclocross and similar bikes, what inner tubes do you use?

I'm running a pair of WTB Nano 700 x 40c tyres and the normal 700 x 18-25c tubes are just not enough.

Cycling solo in Morocco

Has anyone here cycled SOLO in Morocco? I live just 20-mins from the ferry port in Malaga and I've got 5 days free at the end of June. Many of the folk here say that Morocco is safe BUT strongly advise against cycling solo. One of the main points is that people do roadblocks / stop traffic to try to...

Re: Musings on a Spanish Coast to Coast

A group ride sounds like a good idea, though I'm fine about riding solo too or breaking in to smaller groups. We haven't got a definite place lined up yet. I'm back in Barca on the 15th for 5 days looking at property and areas, then back out again with wife and kids mid-Feb. The places I'm going to ...

CX / Gravel Wheelset advice

I recently took advantage of Planet X's deal on the Pickenflick with SRAM Force. I love the bike. I'm going to stick some flared drop bars on it, but I'm stuck with what wheels to go with (They come with Gipiemme Roccia Equipe wheels). I've been using tubeless on my MTB all year and want tubeless fo...

WTD: Alpkit Big Shakeout ticket

It's my own fault for not buying a ticket early enough.

I also applied to be a volunteer over a month ago but I haven't heard anything back.

I've had a ball at the Big Shakeout the last couple of times and would like to go again...

So, does anyone have a ticket going spare?

I've always managed to get my mat inside the bivi along with a 2 season sleeping bag and silk liner. That being said, I am slimmer than most!
