Glad your OK! I have seen many used tube failures in my years with bikes and also in the ten years I have owned my shop. Used tubes seemed to be easily pinched during installation. Most likely due to the old tube being stretched out. Used tubes also have a high failure rate around the valve stem. I wont install tires without new tubes. We also recommend new tubes to to all DIY tire purchasers. Never tried but I was told AFX would replace your crash damaged helmet at no charge. I will look into if you want. We have sold many AFX helmets, but havent had one crash tested that I know of.
