    inner tubes do pop, after all they are ruber and not cement.

    People often think it happens because they have to much air pressure in the tires. Quite often it is jus the opposite. You (usually) don't have enough air in the tires so the tire moves around to much when you clip a corner and the tire pops.

    This is especially true with snake bites, where the tube gets pinched between the rim and the curb and you end up with two little holes in your tube.
