    Exact same thing with mine, brand new tube, bulged in one area which now feels very thin and soft.
    I wonder what the rate of failure on these actually is, how many out of a given batch are likely to be defective?

    Just had a nightmare experience with tubolito. I've been using them for a few months and up until now had been pretty impressed with them. Went on a ride this weekend and got a flat right at the end. Swapped out the tube for my spare tubolito but the tire wouldn't inflate. Took the tube out and tried to inflate it on its own and after only a few pumps it started to bulge in one section and wouldn't inflate any further. Had to walk 40 mins to a train station, not impressed.
    Tubolito are sending me a free tube to replace the faulty one but I can't say I have much confidence in them now.

    Actually just bought two of these after my fancy Rapha bottle decided to eject itself into the river Lea.
    Really cannot fault these, especially for the price! Super light, pleasing squishyness, easy to drink from, cheap enough that you wont get upset about losing them.

    Does anyone know where you can get replacement caps/lids for specialized purist bottles?
    You can buy the lids on the specialized US site for $4 but they don’t seem to be available on the U.K. site.

    Thanks for the help guys. I've got it going all the way up the cassette now by adding more tension but now its not shifting back down. Is it just a case of fine tuning the barrel adjuster until it works both ways?
