Today, of course, I went back to the Egge, I really wanted to drive the Eggeweg from Herbram Wald to Willebadessen again. At the beginning of the round we noticed that we are not alone today. I have never seen so many people on the paths, so slowly, always a friendly hello and slowly onward. I particularly enjoyed the game reserve near Asseln today, no people, just curious fallow deer, which greeted us friendly at the fence.Oh, in Willebadessen, I noticed that my rear wheel is slowly losing air. Is nothing new. Today it was my turn again and Isa was spared.Inflated twice on the way home, luckily the air only escaped very slowly and tomorrow there will be a new hose 🙈😅
If you keep losing air you have to check your coat carefully for the remains of thornsIt is best to pull a cotton ball or make-up removal pad through the inside of the tire more often
Thanks for the hint. I will try it.
Exactly, there may be something in the tire's jacket. Buried splinters, a broken wire, glass, etc. It's not always easy to find.
Moin Julia, I do it with damaged areas. A line on the tire where the valve is. Inflate the hose and hold it in a tub of water to find all the holes. Then hold the tube on the tire, valve = the same line on the tire, and you already have roughly the point where what is yours and if you can't find something right away, Ralf comes up with his suggestion. With this you should have done the repair relatively quickly 😁😁

Oh what I would have given yesterday for a hole in the tire 😖😩
Why Christoph ??? No needle with you? 😂😱
Nah yesterday the rear derailleur tore off again 😠
I once drove through blackberry bushes and patched the hose 4 times even though I felt the coat with my fingers.With the make-up removal pad I discovered 12 more thorns and then ordered 2 new tires with protective insertsI ride the Conti X-KING at the front and the Race-King at the back, both with Protection, and I've been quiet ever since.With the e-bike, however, you can do something rougher
I get advice from a specialist retailer; a new hose every 2 weeks doesn't have to be in the long run.
The best thing is to have it converted to tubeless right away
I was advised not to do so ... I don't know. The EMtb is still new territory for me.
