Leaking hose filling tires
I just missed out on a ride yesterday because my compressor gauge froze @ 0, that's after I lost all the air in my back tire trying to inflate it. It gets better, the wind blew my new bike over and left some nasty scrapes in the paint.
Anyway, I decided to get a good Lezyne floor pump, and a spare tube. The hose leaks when I try to pump the tire up, in an effort to see if it was seated the tip broke off the valve.
Changed the tube and tried to inflate it, the air seems to go in ok but air hisses out where the hose of the pump screws onto the valve.
Is this normal? Or am I having really bad luck?
