Punctured tyre after new inner tube?

OK so I refitted a new tube yday and got it up to 110 PSI, and rode 10 miles with it and everything was fine.

Today I filled that tyre to 120 PSI which is the maximum my tyre advises and within 30 seconds of taking it out the house, the tyre went ****ing flat. Luckily, I went back home removed the tube and found a really small hole. There was nohing in the tyre though that caused this puncture?

So I replaced the tube for another again FFS and rode it to my LBS, and I asked them about this problem and they gave me a variety of issues that could've caused it. But I don't believe them just because I think they want to get 10 off me so they can fit my tube for me.

So what could really be the problem please help?!

This is the second time the same tyre has experienced a puncture? Coincidence?!

Are you sure the tube was completely inside the tire? If just a small section was caught between the tire bead and the rim then pumping it to max psi (which is never a good idea) could have pinched that small section causing the puncture.
Did you check the rim tape? It protects the tube from being pressed against the end of the each spoke.

Why did you inflate the tire to max psi?

It certainly is possible that whatever punctured your tire & tube was knocked out. Usually a thorn, staple, glass or offending item will get stuck in your tire and will take a few rotations of the tire to actually pierce the tire's casing and tube. And then a few more rotations can cause it to break free or fall back out, which opens up the hole.
Whenever I cannot avoid running over something, I like to lightly run my finger along both tires while still riding to knock it free before it has a chance to penetrate the tire casing. I've cut my finger once or twice over a lifetime of riding, but I've also knocked out a bunch of thorns in time and avoid flats too. You can use your glove if you don't want to risk a scratch.

Also, whenever you get a flat, it's a good idea to carefully check the inside of the tire casing when changing the tubes, to ensure the offending item is no longer stuck in there, waiting to puncture your next new tube.

Flats always seem to come in threes. You're almost out of the woods.

Where on the tube is the hole located? What size is the tire? How much do you weigh? How worn is the tire/rim liner?
