heres a problem ive been having:
i popped my tire so i took it to the shop and put in a new tube and tire. ever since then, about a month ago, ive had frequent flats. the hole in the tube is always in the seam and not in the same place. it cant be the rips or something stuck in the tire. the tube and tire are the exact same type ive been using before i had the problem. i dont overinflate the tube. whats wrong?? i need to get this fixed! its driving me crazy!

its not random holes from stuff sticking in the tube, its always the seams popped. and whats so funny about taking it to the shop? the only reason i took it was because i needed to get another tire anyway and i needed them to adjust other stuff on my bike which i didnt have tools for so i let them do it. otherwise id do it myself.... anyway, im trying a new tire and a little bit bigger tube to see if it works..wish me luck

take off the rim strip and check for rocks, wood splinters, or ne little thing that could pop ur tire check for loose spokes check the tire to make sure there is somethin still stuck in it that is poppin the tire(alotta people forget to check the tire) also make sure that the rim doesnt have ne sharp edges in it and when u place a new tube in it inflate it with a slight bit of air(just enuff to make it round) and put it in and then inflate it then delfate it(but not all the way) while pinchin the tire and pushin it down to keep from gettin a pinch flat(from bein underneath the tire bead) then inflate it and its ready to go----ive done that for 6 years now and i havent had a pinch flat nore a bulge in my tires

oh yeah i forgot to say if ur tire has too many holes in it(or just a big hole) then u have to get a new tire or u will keep poppin ur tube, b/c with those little holes in it itll let pine needles in and pop ur tube and to check for little holes u look from the inside and stretch the tire but sometimes u can get away with usin a thick strong glue(like shoe goo) and fill in the holes if u dont want to buy a new tire

it could be a metal thing sticking out of yoru tires... most likely will be on the side, and wont hit on same spot, but will always hit in same level area
