    Lefty Air

    Should my Lefty on my 05 Scalpel 1000 need air added every week? I run about 175 PSI at 210 lbs. body weight. Doesn't seem to hold that pressure very long.

    How much are you losing? When you attach (but not detach) the pump, you'll lose about 10-15 lbs into the pump valve chamber, so make sure you're accounting for that.

    And if it's more than that, A: check to see your valve core is tight, and B: if it is, you'll need a service, as your seals are most likely getting dried out and flattened.
