As i posted earlier, i got my bike today. Well, after dinner tonight, i wanted to go riding, but felt the tires first. The front is fine, but the rear tire is a lot lower. I can easily squeeze the tire. I sat on it and it looked real flat. There is still air in it, but looks to low to ride.
The tires say 41-55 psi. It was filled to 55 when i left the LBS. My question is, are these tires good enough to hold my weight? Is the tire pressure low just because i rode it? Am i going to have to air it up every morning, and again after i ride 6 miles?
My weight was my concern when buying this bike, but i was assured it would be no problem. The Trek navigator was the same price, i considered that bike since the tires were wider.
I am excited to have this bike, but now feel upset. Your advice, is it just the tire, or me? Thanks.
It is a Trek 7100, 700cc tires. No, do not have a pressure guage or pump yet.
