My wife is in the garage changing the CD's out in her car. She comes in and says come quick, I hear air leaking out of your tires. Im expecting to find my truck tires leaking or something. The sound had quit by the time I got out there, but I grab the front tire of my bike which is hanging up and its completely flat. Why would a tire spontaneously go flat. I had ridden this afternoon with no problems.

My wife didnt touch the bike and like I said its hanging from a rack.

Maybe your bike was expressing it's opinion of your wife's taste in music.

Does your presta valve screw into a sleeve? Sometimes when I uncap my tube, the entire presta mechanism unscrews and shoots across the room. Is it possible your came loose.

The other thing to do is to actually check the tube...
