    Schwalbe Aerothon Tubes

    They tubes, made of thermoplastic polyurethane, are pricey ($32!!) but are much lighter than regular butyl tubes and pack down much smaller. I'll probably pick a couple up to use as spares, to start....

    Thanks -- this is very helpful.

    Thanks for sharing this -- really a nice write-up. I didn't realize that historic roads continue to be paved over, but of course they do! Nice to know there's at least a discussion about preservation.
