Ok, 2 days old, and back at the dealer. Sad

Front tire was leaking down from 35 psi to 25 psi in about 12 hours of time. No nail/screw in tire.

So if it is leaking around a spoke (or 2) ... what will the dealer do? Remove the spoke nipple, put a new o-ring under it, tighten it back up. Check for leaks.

Or do you guys seal them up with something. Bike is a 2017 with 80 miles on it.

When I changed my tires last month I had read about leaking spokes. I put a dab of silicone sealant on each nipple from the inside. Mine were not leaking but as a cautionary procedure.

Or you can go with the cast alloy wheels from earlier models. I got a new rear wheel for $80 from this guy on eBay. He only has one left:

Your dealer should change the leaking "O" ring, it's probably only 1 not sitting right.

BTW
I converted the spoke wheels on my 72 Eldorado with silicon as Grinapoco says
I found the cheap tubes of GE 100% Silicon 1 work as good as anything.

There's a thread or two here about leaking spokes.

Oh man, I searched on leak and saw all kinds of scary oil leak threads. Smile Off to read some.

And my dealer, said they could fit it in today, dropped it off at 11am, 6pm they closed, no update. Oh well. Maybe they are trying to find the proper sized o-rings.

Ok, GRiSO back. So service guys said no spokes were leaking, it was the bead around the rim. They cleaned everything up, reseated the tire, held exact pressure for ~ 18 hours, so we are calling it fixed.
