I will start my travelling from Munich to Mongolia with K60 Scout tyres in June.

Do Anyone have experiences with the Heavy cross tubes for Heidenau : 21" Heavy Cross, 18F Cr 18 . They seems like 4-4.5 mm thick (normal tubes are 1.5-2mm)
is there any performances/ ergodynamic changes if I use thick tubes

Cheers

I run HD tubes in Kenda Big Blocks, many many high speed highway miles, no problems.

Our summers often see temps in the triple digits, I ride year round with this combination, no problems yet. I did notice that the interior of the tubeless tires were a bit rougher, but I haven't seen and adverse wear in the tube because of it, just be sure to powder the tubes when you put them in. Last fall I rode from Moab Utah to Southern California non stop except for gas, 700 to 800 miles if memory serves, 80 to 85 speeds were the norm, no problems.

i just worried , if its get hotter., as I am sure riding above 35 degree celsius conditions
