careful, if you overinflate those blow-up dogs the plastic eyes start to bulge out.

Am I the only one to notice that it's been six pages & so far nothing on the subject, not even hot air, from Sweden?

Clearly winter air will be coolest of all, so check your tyres in winter and leave them well alone the rest of the year!

Of course if you have to change a tyre in summer this can be a problem, but Dobbo has an answer:

Import northern hemisphere winter air.

you aren't getting what you pay for though, it's not swedish air. it's actually air from varese in italy, which is bottled and sold from germany.

Thats because there isnt any real hot air in Swden. What your refering to is actually from a large volume producer in the NSW central west who has managed to pull a deal to have hot air exported to Europe under an Austrade subsidy scheme & then re-imported for vast profit

So I got a question for the inmates.

About 50 years ago Picnic Point in Toowoomba used to sell tins of mountain air.

Fair dinkum!

So..... I still have my tin of mountain air... Unopened after all these 50 years.

Will this air still be ok to put in my Tyres?

I mean it doesn't have a use by date!

What do the inmates think?

And a supplementary question... Is mountain air ok to use in a city bike?

You've been had! Mountain air density is a lot less than coastal air density so your tin has got about 20% less air than it should have. using it in tyres at lower altitudes could lead to underinflation & possible tyre damage or result in an accident. I doubt your insurance would cover you If became aware of your use of "mountain air"

You have to be cautious with canned air...it can contain air bubbles....but not to worry, you can get a prick....pricks are commonplace now....there's a special Swedish prick that should be out soon.....

False economy - tyre technology has come along way in 50 years. Old air may work but why take the risk. If it's any use to you I have a few PSI of new air in the shed left over from when I changed the tyres on the DR. PM me if interested.

Note: Albury is a rural city so I think the air will suit town and country bikes. Dual purpose air I 'spose.

Any thoughts on the 'natural' Brazilian rainforest air. Supposed to be inherently infused with rubber from their rubber trees? Maybe the cheaper Malaysian stuff is good too? They say the rubber infused stuff is springier and will naturally seal punctures.
