Topic - Burst tubes - any tips for prevention?

Sven - on 05 Feb 2014
I'm a fairly recent convert to road biking and seem to be suffering a lot of burst tubes, particularly on the front wheel. The roads around here (Forest of Dean) are pretty pot-holed and are certainly not helping but I was wondering if anyone had any tips for prevention?

I was also thinking of running with two tubes (by adding a hole for the second valve on the rim), allowing me to pump up the spare in case of puncture, rather than the hassle of changing tubes at the side of the road. Has anybody tried this before or is it a daft idea?

Any comments appreciated.

Regards

Sven
