I need the bike for the next two months for transportation, what's the best solution until I can send it in for repair???
Should I just put a tube in?
The quick n dirty/ simplest solution is to :
1,,first let's do a simple quick check to find out just where it is leaking,,,just lift bike on center stand,, air up tbhe tire circa 40 psi then with some soapy water/ windex apply to rim-tire interface,,,,the area around valve stem,,,,,around each nipple especially the nipple-spoke interface as well as the nipple -rim interface,,,,MARK the leaking spots
2,,, holler with your results and I'll recommend solution
3,,,the simpler no brainer Rx is to t OSS in a tube,,,,,till we sort it out
