:crying: My bikes in the garage! :crying:

She's leaking air somehow from her rear tyre.. It happened a few weeks back, I refilled the tyre to the correct pressure and everything seemed fine.. I had a good look all round the tyre and could see anythign stuck in it so carried on riding.. I went to the garage this morning after not riding her yesterday and she was a absolute pig to get out.. I pushed the rear tyre with my hand and it squidged in.. Not a good sign :crap: Rode carefully up to the garage and the tyre pressure read 6!!!!!!!!!!

So refilled it again and rang the garage.. I said I would drop it in this afternoon after work..

So I did.. But on the walk home I from there I felt naked :eek: It was horrible :crying:

Hopefully I should be able to pick her up tomorrow afternoon once they've figured out what is wrong..

The list of potential problems can't be that long can it? :idunno:

Top of the list has to be puncture or valve, after that maybe the bead, after that the wheel itself??

I had a puncture last weekend, on the way up north - 2 cans of puncture seal didn't seal it properly, so I had to do 160 miles at 50mph in the rain... not much fun.

The bike now has specks of latex all over the back of it that I have to get off somehow, from where the tyre leaked as I was going along :(

But at least the tyre was saved, fixed with a mushroom patch. It's only about 1/3 worn, at most.

Pics :idunno: :evilaugh:
:rolleyes: There's always one! :rotfl:

Well.. I have my baby back, I've just been to get her :thumb:

He took the tyre off, checked it all round and couldn't find anything in it anywhere but did say there was some muck round the bead, so reckons it possibly wasn't seated quite right... He's cleaned it up and put the tyre and wheel back on and now I'll just have to keep an eye on it..
