Help with tire/wheel/tube problem.
I got my old nishiki out after 20 years and am running it single speed. Problem is I am extremely new to maintaining bikes. I cannot seem to keep the rear tube from getting damaged.
First tube got a small pin size hole on the inside part of the tube (not sure if i am describing it correctly). The 2nd tube seems to have been damaged badly near the stem and it won't even inflate at all after sitting for a few days.
I thought I'd start with the basics since I do not know what I am doing.
Wheel is an Alex Rims R450 6061H-T6 622x14. No idea about the brand, never heard of it, just what the shop happened to have at the time.
Tire is a Continental Ultra Sport 23-622 (700x23c). Again just bought what the store had and said would work.
2nd tube is a Slime 700x 19-25 presta.
Does anyone think there might be a problem with the tire/wheel/tube combo I am using?
The rubber strip that goes between the inside of the wheel and tube is in place. The tire is not inflated in the pic. I run the PSI between 100-120 per whats written on the tire.
Thanks for the help!
