Nothing is fool proof.

Haha well i have no clue how it even got a flat and i just put it in last week not looking foward to taking the tire of the rim again

A thorn in a tire will work its way into any rubber. And yes, some tires are a bitch to mount and pull. But WD-40 can help lube and it drys.

Or if there was possibly a little piece of something between the tire and tube when it was mounted, or even a little burr on the wheel or at the end of a spoke, it can easily flatten a tube.

I sure hope not ive went threw 3 tubes in about 2 months but theres nothing on the rim or spokes poiking through maybe the bead lock ripped

Ever looked at NuTech Tubliss? Had that set up on my rear wheel for 1.5 years, 4 tire changes and not one flat riding 90% offroad.

I ran Tubliss out in the desert - got a sidewall cut on a rock with over 20 miles to go in a race and still finished with a completely flat front. Handled like shit, but didn't destroy the wheel. Tubliss is awesome.

I might have to look into that but i do about half trail and offroad and half mx are those ok for mx

I've always struggled changing tires until I got a Baja No Pinch tool, and some real tire lube from Carquest Auto Parts. Having 4-5 tire irons helps to if you don't have the No Pinch.

I doubt you got a pinch flat on a HD tube. Probably a thorn or something like that.

Yah i didn't pinch it it just happend yesterday after racing my woods course with some friends

And yeah, Tubliss is good for mx, though it does require more maintenance than a tube, just have to check air pressures more often - like before each ride - and make sure the inner high pressure tube stays at 100 psi (which it's good normally for at least a week before you lose a couple psi). Other than that you can run pretty much any pressure you want in the tire with no worries of de-beading the tire, getting a flat (unless you nail a really sharp rock like I did), or damaging the wheel. MXA gave the product five stars, for whatever that's worth. They are a pretty tough crowd sometimes.

check the valve

Are you running a decent rim lock ?

valve stem/ valve core?

I'm going to get these, do you put them front and rear? Is hill climbing and turning that much better with them?

 

I read up about them and like how there is 100lb tube that protects the rim and you can use 0-10lb in the tire thru the valve. 

I only ran one in the rear wheel but traction everywhere is way better!

Ive decided to just patch it for now it was just a tiny hole but i read the box and was a "ultra heavy duty tube" im not very good with checking air every ride to but i will look into it thanks for the info
