Most tires with inner tubes lose air over time and the rate of loss most likely depends on the material used in the tube. In your experience (or knowledge) what is a normal air loss in tubed tires? I have read that on average 1 to 2 psi per week is common. What are your thoughts?
(That is why before each ride I always check each tires pressure.)

Thanks!

I know when the bike sits for a couple of months it always needs air. 1-2 psi a week sounds about right.
