Inner Tube help

I am in need of an inner tube that's 700 x47 with a 60mm Presta Valve . All I seem to locate are ones from Specialized . Have any ideas ?

You can use narrower tubes, 700x25 should be fine.. just will stretch thinner..

A 29" X 1.75 tube should work. Check ebay or Amazon.

I always purchase the largest tube that will fit. The thinner you stretch that tube . The more likely you are to have an internal flat. You may also find that you are spending more time pumping it up. Schwalbe and Continental still use some real butyl rubber in their tubes. They are worth the price.

So you found them but you need help finding them? I am confused? Specialized tubes are just fine and work quite well, I have used and haven't really had many issues.

These don't seem to be in short supply or grossly overpriced. Here is one online bike shop with several brands. https://www.modernbike.com/700-x-47-700c-presta-tubes
