TLDR: The pressure you put into the bottle is NOT the pressure to which you inflate the tyre. The pressure drops down as the volume increases when you connect the bottle with the tyre. The final pressure you inflate your tyres to is mostly personal. There are some guidelines but depend on many details about the terrain and the tyre properties. You ask for a ...

For one, it depends on how sensitive you are to changes in suspension performance. You can’t really measure for any drop (your shock pump will initially steal some of the air chamber’s air in order to equalize the pressure), so you’d have to go by feel. From my experience, leakage has been negligible, even after a few months. Topping the air up isn’t hard ...

Something subtle is in the tyre puncturing the tubes. It may be rubbing rather than piercing, and it may be imperceptible without pressure, but it's there. To help you locate it, align the logo on the tyre with the valve every time. Then when you find the hole in the tube you know where to look in the tyre (with some margin for error, and you might flip the ...
