Hey guys I picked up a 29 by 1.95 to 2.2 tube and I'm wondering if I can use it in my 29 x 2.3 Tire? Thanks.

Yep. I've seen a 20" BMX tube used in a 29" wheel! A few millimeters isn't a deal-breaker.

That said, the more tension in the tube, the more it will suffer from pinhole punctures opening up and there's a greater chance of the seam wearing and failing over time. These are typically minor concerns, just expect it to be slightly more susceptible to slow leaks.
