My front tire keeps popping no matter what I've looked at the rim stripe it's fine I've looked over the inside of the tire it's fine I don't over pressurize it so I'm stumped any ideas? Here's a pic of the tube it's crazy
Pinch flat blowout. Basically the center of the hole is where it pinches, then blows out like that. What are you using to install the tire?
Nice hole lol. Maybe spokes are that loose that they push the rim strip and fucks thatup..
Just noticed this also, is this what's causing the flats? Or are they actually pinch flats? Yes that's the metal sticking out of the tire..
Bad tire. Yes that is the cause I would bet.
New tire time!
Oh and quit using screwdrivers to change your tires.
I actually use the rubber end of my wrench and my fingers lol
use plastic tire wrenches best things ever! also make sure your tire is seated properly

Quit using the wrench. Get tire levers. 5 dollar investment, no more trashed tires. Make sure you learn the correct way to use them as well. In the shop I worked at, we MAYBE went through a set of 3 in a summer. That's doing dozens of tires a day.
My personal set is 3 years old, barely any wear on them.
Yes thats probably the problem.
