When it comes to tubes are the 700c and 29" tubes interchangeable? I've seen info on the net that would suggest that ...

Technically, no. 700c and 27.5 are usually interchangeable when it comes to skinny road bike tires.

But, I've used 16" tubes in 20" tires back in my bmx racing days when trying to save those last few ounces on a race bike.

Main problem now, is today's Chinese tubes suck.
