well you already stated what the problam was, "as im pumping up my tyre the tube gets a big gash on the inside" theres your problem, fix it.

1) trash those single walles.
2)if you dont have the money, take the wheel's off the bike.
3)take the tires off.
4)take the crappy tubes you bought out.
5)patch kits dont work
6)check to see if there is anything sharp in the tim that can punture the tube, and check with the inside of the tire also.
7)make sure that the rim liner is in good condition.
8)put everything back together
9)get thorn resistant/dirt/street tubes and put them on the bike.
----------pump up the tubes to 40psi
----------release all of the air just by holding the valve pin in. don't push the extra out by squishing the tube
----------slide the tubes into the tire under the one side of the tire you hopefully left off.
----------put tire back on.
10)put rim's back on bike.
11)pump up

check the inside and ouise of the tire VERY carefully for thorns. you probally have a bunch of them in your tire

6 dollars is a good price, listen to that guy  

07 Feb 2006 19:29
yup. $6 plus shipping is an awsome price because with riding those tubs for 2 years, the only flat's i've gotten were from someone slashing my tire and from doing a fufanu with too little psi. they basically pay for themselves because you dont need to replace tubs every week or so.

the bikers at woodward are always replacing their tubes.

that's because they dont have the thick tubes. they're all weight crazy and find the idea of an extra 1lb to be crazy.
