I have roughly about 600 miles on a set of these tires on Enve 3.4 clinchers. I flatted today, changed the tube, aired it up and was on my way. Shortly after, I felt a lump in the tire and then had a blow out. I changed the tube again, but I noticed the tire wouldnt seat on the lip of the rim, almost like the tire was stretched. I forced the tire down so it would seat, filled it up with air and once again was on my way. Low and behold, the lump in the tire happened again. I looked down and the tube was bulging from the tire/wheel. The tire became unseated for the second time. I cant figure out for the life of me why this is happening. Anyone experience this before or know why?

First, the obvious, if you didn't properly install the tube, insuring that the it was properly tucked within the casing of the tire, then that would be sufficient to cause both the blowout and may also be what is causing the tire not to seat correctly (i.e. tube is caught between tire bead and rim). Second, if after the blowout the bead unseated from the tire, and the you rode the tire a few rotations, it is possible that you ran over the bead of the tire, causing damage to the bead and thus preventing it from seating. The latter is less likely cause, the former, seems to me, may be the more likely issue. EM3
