First day of Spring...
Not too cold and no rain in the forecast, so I decided to take the bike to work...a 60 mile round trip. I don't put the bike away for the winter so this is not the first time I've taken it out this year but...It's the first day of Spring.
Got myself all geared up, loaded up the bike with my office work and took off down the road.
It didn't take long to feel that the steering was hard to control. I know what that usually means.
I pulled over, and even though the tires looked full, a quick check with the gauge showed that the front tire was down to about 15 pounds.
What!?! I just checked it a few days ago.
I wobbled back home and took the car to work. There was no time to pump up the tire and I wouldn't have bothered if there was...If there was a leak, I didn't want to start losing pressure along the way.
Either it developed a leak, something is wrong with the valve, or some stoopid pig-fart kid decided to let out some air for giggles.
I inflated the tire today and I'll check it in a couple of days too see if it's leaking again. If so...New tube or valve. If not...the hunt will be on for some stoopid pig-fart kid.
