when did you buy the bike? if you bought in the last thirty days and haven't done anything unnatural it's still under warrantee, ie free valve fix becuase stuck valves are a flaw in construction, unless you did someting wrong witht it. either way, just bring it in to the shop, if you don't know what to do, u'll just probbably cause more damage
