So, the weather was perfect yesterday here in NC for a ride. Been riding on the 26" since June now and no issues with the tire losing air at all. Go out to the garage, take a look at the bike, and the front is completely flat. Put some air in it and it's losing air as fast as I put it in. Air is coming out at a spot near the wheel and tire, along the edge. My question. Is there any other option to fix this without having to remove the wheel?

Jack it up and put a ratchet strap or rope around the center of the tire. Snug the strap up and fill her up!

Once you break the bead its nearly impossible to reseat unless you lift the tire off the ground.

Did you hit any hard bumps or anything? Wondering how the bead would break?


Tap it!
