I have to confess, that night when I got home, I removed the tyre and checked for any sharp bits protruding, nothing. Filled a bucket and checked the tube for air bubbles, I went very slowly around the circumference at least 4 times, no sign of a leak. The valve was fine too. So what the heck caused my tyre to deflate? I was totally baffled. Then I realised, I recalled I found the valve cap on a shelf in the garage and I didn't remember putting it there, about a week before I topped up the tubes up and must have forgotten to seal the presta valve completely, the air must have just slowly leaked out. 1 hour of my life I won't get back .A flat tyre spoiled my only chance to commute to work this week. On the bright side, it was discovered in my garage, and not at the other end of my journey far from warmth and tools.
