Another consideration is that your tires could have latex tubes which will always bleed air very quickly. Before doing anything drastic like taking off your tubulars, I'd check with the manufacturer to see what the tube material is and also try to pump it up again to see what happens.
Thanks, They are vittoria open corsa evo cx. Pumped them up twice but still leak down.
When I installed the extenders I screwed the core all the way out maybe get something to fit inside extender to tighten it back up after inflating?? Seems like there has to be a better way than this.
I see Tufo Makes some kind of valve extenter that actually comes with a longer valve; anyone have any experience with these? do they work on any tire or just tufo?
