Story goes I replaced my front tube this morning after snapping the valve in the pump (another first). So I got about 5-10 minutes into my ride and sssffffffffffffffffffff - brand new tube just goes completely flat. It was a nice flat bit of path with no offending objects such as glass/nails in sight. So I can only imagine this is a pinched tube yeah?
Total for the year: 2
Where was the hole?
Near the valve, quite a big tear.
Also, I've been struggling to put my new tube in for some reason. It's weird, I've put a couple of tubes in myself recently without any dramas. Now I'm finding it hard to tuck the bead into the rim...feels like I've lost my tube changing mojo. When I do get it in and inflate the tire there is this soft bulge on the other side of the valve that won't go away no matter how much I pump it up.
