Slow puncture on rear Schwalbe 26x1.75.
Found leak on seam of Specialized 46-60 x559 (26x1.75-2.4 ) Mountain 26 Thin 40. Tire fine and no evidence of damage. Looking at my spares, I have a choice of 2 others from my spare box.
Any thoughts on them?
Schwalbe 26" No.13 40/62-559
Or
Specialized City/Urban 32-50x559 ( 26x1.25-2.0 ) Thin.

Thanks folks for your inner thoughts.

Schwalbe are my preferred brand and doesn't cost a premium. The SV13 tube is currently 3.99 at SJS.

I'd fit the lighter one, coz it's lighter innit. Then you're carrying the heavier one, coz we all know punctures like to happen in pairs and the heavier tube might prevent the second. Or, use the one that matches the other wheel, because symmetry is better.
But really, if you haven't fixed it by the time you're reading the replies you ought to be ashamed of you procrastination.

Ha ha.
Yes PH
I had fixed it. Kinda...
I re fitted the original one but must have clipped it with a tire lever despite slightly inflating it as I inserted it. So I have removed it and when France have finished beating South Africa, I'll give it another shot.

And I've ordered X3 new ones from SJS, so I've not really procrastinated. They say, that's the thief of time. Right?
And remember, "Never kill time because time is killing you".

Seems like it will be a while until you "give it another shot".

Ha ha. Yes, I wrote too soon. Great match though. Very entertaining tournament. Fingers crossed for England.
