This is more of an academic question, but my front tire has a slow leak. It looses about 60/70 psi in 24 hour period. I commute 8-10 miles each way to work, and before I leave I pump up to the 100 psi max, and the next day when i get ready to leave, it's down to 30-40 psi and I have to pump it back up. On my ride home it's low, probably 80 psi or so.
My question, could replacing the rim tape fix that? I replaced the tube and the new tube goes down in the exact same way. Replaced tire (Gotta love the kevlar tires at nashbar for $10!!) and the tube still deflates, so my only guess is the rim / rim tape. When I replaced the tube, I held on to the old tube, and have checked every inch of it, dunked in water and everything, and can't find enough of a leak to bubble.
