Use thicker rubbers.
And check your mother fucking rim for anything pretruding up that will pop your fucking tube. Also check your tire.

Stop fucking whining you bitch. Use your god damn mother fucking brain!

That's the sound of your rim hitting the ground.

Your problem seems to be that you don't pump your tires up enough. What PSI do you pump the tires to, and what tires are you using?

What tires does a stock six pack have?

Also, look on the aide of the tires and tell us what the PSI rating is.

Well iw as too alzy to tell you before so i jsut said a stock six pack...now the bike is beside me.

it says interstate on the side of the tire.....and 85 PSI

That is your problem. You need to fill your tires up to atleasy 85 psi for them to be properly inflated. 45 is just over half filled and is what's causing your pops.

I filled it to 75 psi and they were firm, then i went outside to ride street, they got very soft and deflated feeling. then i brought it inside and they were firm again. :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused:

They may feel firm when you press it, but when you are on it, that's added weight pressing down on the tires. Fill them to 85psi and see how they feel when you ride.

that happens to me all the time during the winter. its because the cold air outside is making the warm air inside the tire cold...and cold air takes up less room so your tire deflates. but its summer now so i dont know...unless you live on the other side of the equator or sum.

ok dude......



your tire says 85, you had 45, demented says put 85 at least, you put 75.


PUT 85!!! and you should be fine. maybe alittle more. I run my bike at around 100. Dont trust your hand. Your hand is only gonna tell you if its really soft or kinda hard if you dont have 1 buy a tire guage there way cheap. But make sure its a bike one or it goes high enough. Many of them only go up to about 65psi because they are made for cars which dont need as hard tires because when cars drive fast they get hot and the air expands

Couldn't have said it better myself...Well, actualy I could, but I get too technical and start explaining the surface area's, pressure needed to inflate, surface tension, weight tension, sidewall thickness, ect. All that good stuff. lol
