Mothercare urban detour - where do you get inner tubes from?

I looked on ebay and they all said silver cross urban detour inner tubes, which I don't understand cos its mothercare that makes the pram (I think).

Would these ones fit if I got them?

try mothercare - they've got a catalogue of spare parts you can order.

if that was the title on the ebay listing then its probable that the inner tube fits the urban detour and a silver cross?

thanks twinkly, yes you are right about fitting both. Was having a thick moment (again!).

Have ordered the ebay ones now. smile

I got inner tubes from a pram shop but had them fitted at a bike shop. The guy in the bike shop said that they also sell the inner tubes and they were cheaper than the pram shop ones.

I think the tyre should tell you the size of tube needed in most cases (and it's usually 12" I think)

I always bought mine from the local bike shop (and got them fitted/fixed there).

if you order through mothercare they can take a couple of weeks to come through, so if you need them now go to a bike shop.

A friend has told me to get my tyres filled with gel instead of air at a bike shop as then when you get a puncture, it doesn't go flat. Never heard of that before tho.
