Anyone else experiencing loss in tyre pressure? Like 8-10 psi over a week or so front and rear. I will check the valves which hopefully will solve it or porous wheels maybe.

I haven't had any issues with loss. Have about 800 mi on the bike now and check every week or so. Check the bead seal...maybe they fit it dry?

Changed the valve cores so I’ll keep an eye on it for a bit see what happens.

I was told by an older rider that often new bikes have the tyres fitted dry & therefore they don't 'seat' against the rim properly. The inference being to remove and refit them using the 'wet' method which helps them seal more fully around the entire circumference of the rim.

No joy with valve cores so new valves fitted the originals didn’t seem to be seated properly so hopefully sorted out now.
