Help! Why does my front tire keep losing air?
So I had been having trouble with my front tube, which had slime, was going flat every couple of days. I assumed it had taken on one too many goatheads and was time to just be replaced.
So I replaced it with a regular tube, and all seemed fine for about a week, but then I noticed it didnt have as much air as it should. It wasnt flat, but it certainly wasnt full. My rear tire is still fine.
I aired it up last weekend, and then yesterday (two days later) it was low again. Not flat, but low.
I only commute 3.5 miles each way, so after only 14 miles it was very low. A section of my commute is steep uphill, and I know I put a lot of pressure on the front when Im climbing, but I dont think it would cause me to loose so much air.
So whats causing the fairly quick loss of air pressure if Im not actually getting flats?!
