The tyre is there to support the tube, without the tyre you couldn't put 110psi into the tube on its own. Once you get a hole in the tyre, the tube isn't supported and will have escaped through that hole and stretched until it failed with a bang. The hole in the tyre might look small when it has no pressure in it but when you put 100psi into it, the hole ...

Chances are it's not too long, it just appears that way because it's deflated. You just need to put some air in it, put one or two pumps in the tube, just enough to mostly inflate it, but not enough to stretch the rubber (over-inflating it will also make it look too long), then set the tube in your tire, it should be fine. You may need to let the air back ...

A tube can usually fit a range of different tire sizes, because the tube can stretch a bit when it is being inflated. The range of tire sizes is written on the package that you see at the store. Since your tire is 26"x1.5", you need to find a tube that is labelled as being appropriate for a 26" (diameter) tire and a width range that includes 1.5". For ...

It should say on the package at the store what the size is. If you have a 26 x 1.5in tire, you will just want to make sure the tube you buy overlaps the 1.5in. For example, it may say 26" x 1.5" to 2". You will also want to make sure you get a tube with the proper kind of valve. Either Presta or Schrader. Look at the valve on tube you already have, if it ...

A bang explode pretty much only happens when the tube leaks out from tire. Either the slit is big enough for the tube to push through or the tire pushed over the rim and the tube leaks out. Without a tire a tube will only handle a few pounds of pressure. I suspect the tire belt is damaged. When you see the tire off the rim you might assume the ...
