TPU Bicycle Tubes: Light, Fast, Cheap…. What’s the Catch?

This week I set out to answer a few questions I had about these super-light and relatively new type of bicycle tubes. Were they difficult to install? Were they fragile? At less than 1/2 the weight and volume of standard tubes, was there a catch? I also exploded a few of them to see what would happen if they were inflated outside of a tyre, for science of course. πŸ˜‰πŸ’₯
