The inner tube is pinched on the inside diameter. Not sure how that happened - i have ridden with it for a week in lesotho, and now for 4 days in nam. Didnt take the tyre off since installation. Checked the pressure day before the incident and it was 7.5 bar. I do check it every other day.

So you checked the pressure and it was fine and next day it got a puncture without bringing any tools close to it?

Could it be a spoke pushing through?

 :sip: Did you say 7.5 bar, did I read that correct, is that not a bit much?

spoke nipples are wrapped in tape and that inner tube puts pressure on red liner to create a seal

 :sip: Ok, thanks, now 7.5 bar makes sense, must be a very high quality material to take that presure.

Fit tubliss system
I think a good analogy with fitting a Tubliss system is that it is very much like having anal sex. If everybody knows what is meant to happen, all parties have bought into it, the conditions are right and there is lots and lots of lube then it all works out very well. If you go at it Brokeback Mountain style then it will probably end very much like the movie – badly. It still gives me a surprise when the whole wheel suddenly vanishes inside the tyre!

I don't think the tube is any better or much better quality than a normal tube but the red liner that it fits into is the thing that keep that pressure contained.

True, check pressures that road cycles is running their thin little tubes at. :eek7:

I dont think so. I dont know about material, but the inner tube is very thick walled - more like a hose, than tube. Much thicker than heavy duty tube. That is reason why they dont pack that much smaller than standard tube.

Red liner is there imo to prevent puncture and provide width to clasp tyre to the rim
