I bought a 2010 Orbea Lanza with the bontrager rhythm elite 29er tlr wheelset from craigslist a few weeks ago. I'm in love with this bike, but have noticed that the front wheel has a very slow leak (loses ~10psi every 24 hrs). I'm a complete noob with tubeless tires, and hope someone smarter than me can figure out a solution.
First, the tire appears to be glued to the rim. I'm not sure if this is a "ghetto tubeless" setup or not, considering the wheel is supposedly tubeless ready. I put the wheel in my bathtub, and tiny bubbles slowly formed on the valve stem. I deflated the tire, tried to tighten the valve nut (by hand only), and reinflated. This seems to have slowed the leak a little bit, but it is still there. Any ideas?
