so im out for a ride yesterday, enjoying the weather, when it occasionally wasnt drenching me to the bone and then all off a sudden i hear the dreaded "pssssssssssssssssst" of a burst tube.

now, this was the first time id ridden my bike with a single ply tyre in the rear, and i never had any trouble when i had dual ply dh tyres before (except for the huge weight penalty) and im left wondering which direction i should go to try and alleviate the problem.

ive checked out some freeride tubes which are a little thicker, so i think im gonna give them a try first, but i was wondering what other peoples experiences were, have you tried thicker tubes or did you bite the bullet and fit a dual ply in the rear?

cheers :D

I think you have it right - I either run:
single-ply w/ DH tubes
dual-ply w/ normal tubes
and now:
UST.
