    Leaky Mavic Cross Max

    Any wisdom on how to repair a leaky Mavic Cross Max? The air is escaping from 2 seperate nipples. The leaks are intermitent, very small, and can only be detected when the wheel is submerged. The wheel will loose about 5 psi during a 3 hour ride. The wheel set is about 4 years old. The front wheel always leaked a little, but it is getting worse. The rear wheel has never leaked and holds air very well.

    Run Stan's sealant. Not only will you take care of the leak, but you'll never flat again.
