I think that question answers itself.

You don't necessarily need a new tube, but you do need one that doesn't leak. Patch it.

I agree with John. On the other hand, two new Michelin Airstop from Amazon is a pretty insignificant expense. I put new inner tubes on when I put new tires on. They out last the tire. I enjoy the piece of mind.

Given the OP, it's worth it for our peace of mind (and peace of forum) to replace the tube with a new one.

I'd patch the current tube then carry it as your spare.  If you weren't planning to carry spare tubes, you should.

New heavy duty tubes always when changing tires.  Carry the old one as a spare.  With those tires, chances of a flat are slim.  So it doesn't make sense to increase those chances.  I take a tour each year which averages around 4,000 miles along with only one flat on those same tires.

I patch tubes and it costs me 10 cents. And I've never in my life spent as much as $6.99 for a new tube.

In this and at least one other forum you have repeatedly stated that you are homeless by choice and live on a low, fixed income yet you don't patch tubes because you can simply by a new one for far more money than you could patch a tube?

Trolled again.

If you don't believe me, look at the posting history, even on this thread.  Dead as a doornail for six weeks, nobody cared for five more weeks, and now, he's back!

Let's see, can we leave this thread alone for another six months?

Pointing out facts and asking a question related thereto is not trolling.

And Bikeforums would be the place you were temporarily banned from for "harassment" and then permanently banned from for "high maintenance", correct?
