How fast should tires lose air?

Seems if I haven't ridden a bike in a week or so the tire pressure drops from 100 psi down to about 60 psi.
Is this normal? Not just one particular bike but all 5 that I own.

Dura Ace AX Dyna Drive pedal dust covers

I have a set of Dura Ace Dyna Drive pedals. The dust covers are impossible to find.
Do you think a piece of duct tape over the opening would work or would there be

Why do so many people on here say it looks like your fork is bent when they see a photo of your bike on here and most of the time it's not.
