I was thinking again about The lone blog, An Inner Tube on The Ocean and realized that I have never done a post about the innertube and what it is, what its for, its side uses, manufacturing, etc,.
When it comes to good quality inner tubes, you want to look for a company that specializes in inner tubes, not one with inner tubes as its side or secondary add on business. Locating these companies are no longer difficult because of the brilliance of GOOGLE! I found one in about 3 seconds in the search engine called Innertubes.net, great site much information and high quality specializers in inner tube.
The American Heritage Dictionary defines an inner tube as: inner tube
n. A flexible, airtight hollow ring, usually made of rubber, that is inserted into the casing of a pneumatic tire for holding compressed air.
It's the inside part of a pneumatic (filled with or containing air or gas) tire that people also use for fun ie: In the Ocean, beaches, and swimming areas and pools of the World! Inner Tubes are very useful, but can also be great fun, taking an inner tube down a spring run or diving onto one from the deck of your swimming pool. Tubing the lazy river at a water park, or taking it down a water park slide. How about down a snow covered hill or a very inviting sand dune! With inner tube races and bicycle tires, kids in the surf, and reusing the car type inner tubes for cool chair designs!
If you need an inner tube for reasons that they were originally created for (the inside of a tire), I found this site to go check out. http://www.innertubes.net/catalog/
I hope this helps! Diggin' the inner tubes myself! :) Enjoy.
