    had a good look at it all today, came to the conclusion its the front 1...the rear tyre is solid with slight wobble (as expected with nobbly tyre on) and the rim lock is as tight as can be...whereas the front is flat like a puncture and the rim lock isnt either there, looks like i will be goin tubed in the front, cant see me havin spare cash for the mousse for a while Sad

    Azzy I prefer mousse's front and back that way no chance of a puncture out on a ride, some chaps keep old mousse's cut them up and pack their tyres with them (in segments not pieces) that way they can pack more moose in and stiffen the tyre slightly. If you get a new moose use plenty of mousse grease that way the tyre don't wear it to quickly, and if you got an old inner tube cut the valve off and bolt it in the rim, that way you can use an airline to seat the tyre. Mousses are a bugger to change if you ain't got the right tool's but a piece of piss if you have, some of the really heavy duty tubes are almost as much aggro as a mousse to change.
