So like 5 days ago my friend gave me 2 United Direct tyres. They're both 2.3
The owner of my LBS gave me a tube.

I rode them for about 2 days for 70 psi each but I wanted them to be harder, 2 days ago I put 90 back and 100 front.

My back one has gone flat for no reason but my front is solid.

why?

The tube seemed ok, it was sealed in a box

I used to be on here all the time. Now I'm hardly ever on because of the stupid people making stupid threads like this. Whenever I get on here that's pretty much all I see.

Buying new tires probably won't fix the problem. It's most likely something to with the tube. Either something in the rim is poking it or you have a slow leak at the valve stem. Fill it up to 90 and listen for any air.

The Primo Tyres are brilliant, so are the Aitkens. I have owned all 4 of those Tyres, apart from the 2.25 Aitken. I am currently running a 2.2 Dirt Monster and a 1.9 Aitken. It's brilliant, doesn't feel slow, they're grippy and I've had them for over 4 months, ride every day and they still look pretty much new, I always used to get flats, but I haven't got a single one since I bought these Tyres.

You should try all these. They are fairly easy and can be picked up in an hour or two.

How does this look?

5/27/2013 1:21 PM

To be honest every set up you've posted in here is really good. I have the Aitken 1.9 on my Back Wheel at the moment and it's great, and I had the 2.1 V-Monster on the Front before and that was great too.

Don't see why you need a new tire it's just a little hole
