    2019 Fathom 1 issues..

    might be silly question.. but i'm kinda new into MTB i'm at around 120KM so far of riding on my bike, but tonight once i got home, i've notice when pedal backwards it feels tight, doesn't go as freely, can feel something is wrong.. i checked my friend 2019 Fathom2 and his works freely like new.. could that be bottom bracket issues? i also notice some noise in the trails tonight. also we both have same problems with rear tire ,we always loose air in tires after a few days, could that be valves issues? kinda wierd we both have same problems..
    thanks in advance

    Need to be more specific on the “tight” pedal issue.

    Is the rear tire tubeless?

    Yes it’s tubeless, put soap everywhere & no bubbles..

    Well “tight” meaning feel like tension and hear noise not as usual.. is there something can do to check if bottom bracket or not? Tomorrow i’ll clean chain.. maybe that’s the problem..

    Tires will typically loose 2-3lbs of pressure a day in my experience and thus why you should check your tire pressure before each ride.

    Make sure there is enough sealant in new tires and it is “spread” around appropriately. My tubeless looses a few psi every couple of weeks if I’m not riding consistently.

    Does your shop offer free tune up after purchase? Your issue could be a few different things.
