I need to get some new tires and tubes for my Hobbit. I found the tires I want, 2.25 front 2.50 rear, but I'm having a hard time finding the tubes at a decent price. Best deal I have found so far is 7.xx for both tubes but $24 shipping! That's out of this world. Now would I be able to just get some tubes from a local bike shop? Would normal bicycle tires work for the moped? Does anybody have a good source for moped tubes?
And would I have to get tubes that are labeled as 2.25 and 2.50 or would I have to get 2.00 and 2.25 tubes to fit my tires? I just don't know if they are labeled for their actual size or for the tire they will fit.
Also, I have never taken the wheel (especially the rear wheel) off of my Hobbit....and frankly I'm afraid to. I'm just going to dive into it either tomorrow or Friday at the latest and I was wondering if anybody had any tips or tricks about these wheels, taking them off and putting new tires on the rims.
Thanks for any help!
