Wiggle (UK) sell them, if it makes any differance, they are red in colour.

A tube that is properly encased in a tire/rim is under very little stress (like almost zero).
Either the tube was improperly installed or hole was suddenly created in the tire/rim.
If the later did not occur, then revisit your installation procedure. The tube may not have been properly seated at the valve, causing the tube to fold under itself and stretch at that point. The tube must be installed with adequate pressure for it to have shape, and you must ensure that the sits straight (not twisted or folded), and the valve area must be pressed against the rim before inflating.

If you are running tubulars at 130 PSI you are missing the point of running tubulars in the first place.
