    slow air leak

    i had both tires (tubeless) replaced a few months ago...and about every 3 weeks i notice that the front one is a little low on air. any reason why that would be happening? it's a very slow leak, and there are no visible punctures. even after 3 weeks it's not incredibly low, just noticeable enough to know to fill it back up. any suggestions?

    Either there's some debris at the rim or the valve is leaking. Toss a little soapy water on there and you'll know instantly. Then take it back and ask them to fix it.

    Of course it is possible that you hit a nail and it flew out, leaving a nearly invisible tear.

    I had that happen on my goldwing. The bead seal on the rim was not proper.
    I took it back and they redid.
