I am a keen cyclist with 40 years experience of riding and maintenance. Bought a set of these and tried to fit one. It is meant to take 35-65 psi. As I pumped it up, aiming for 50, I got to about 45 when the rim came off and the inner tube exploded out of the gap. Thought I may have assembled it badly so tried again. This time I was very careful, put a little air in the tube and felt my way around the rim making sure the tyre was correctly mounted and the tube was not pinched between tyre and rim. Same thing happenned. If I had left it at 40 psi and ridden on it, fair chance it would have blown out while riding. Will be returning for a refund and asking for 2 new inner tubes.
I'm sorry to read that the tyre was not sitting correctly on the rim. I'll forward this on to the product manager. Could I ask you to also reply to me with the width of your rim (in mm) as this will be very useful if we need to investigate the issue further. I wonder if the wire bead was deformed in some way, this may need to be investigated.
