    Specialized bike tubes

    Any quality difference between Bontrager and Specialized bike tubes? I had a failure by the valve on a Specialized tube 60 miles into a 100 mile ride. Same pressure I always use 80 PSI. Might just be bad luck but I've never had this happen on a newish bike tube. Can't be from braking heat as the bike is disc.

    I've been riding on Bontrager tubes for years so thought I'd ask. I'm assuming its just a fluke unless I hear otherwise

    'brifter' is a lame word.

    Fluke. I wouldn't be surprised if 99% of the tubes on the planet were made in maybe 2 factories.

    I would say a fluke. If a tube is going to fail for a defect, around the valve is almost always where it will be.
