I can just see some new bike owner somewhere who is googling to find the right tyre pressure for his bike and stumbles onto this thread and goes WTF?

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?
If you decide to use this tinned air then you must use it right away. Do not be tempted to check the density of the air by poking it with your finger. As we all know if you poke holes in it, all the air drains out and, in the absence of air, this could lead to suffocation. The end result is usually death, or worse!
It might pay to have a second can handy incase some has already poked holes in the air in the first tin.

Alternatively, carry a can of Spare Air...

You never know when you might need it!

Unfortunately Brazilian rainforest air is disappearing by the day and has been placed on the endangered air list. As such it has become a banned import, so good luck trying to get it past customs.

I don't know if it is any good but you could try the synthetic Brazilian rainforest 'air (apparently ' denotes synthetic ).
Though I have only heard of this being created at secret womens business meetings where a lot of gas bagging goes on.
Ask your wife/girlfriend/partner if they attend, maybe next time they can score you some. If they do, make sure it has cooled down first before using.
Let us know how you get on.

Brazilian Rainforest air??? Doesn't make sense. Surely it would be 'airless

Gas or Air?

Chop Chop...Surely this is off topic. You are discussing the Bagging of GAS.... NOT Air.... OR as it is genuinely and uniquely created by Women... is it seen as an equal opportunity.?

Remember when you were a kid and your mini bike wouldn't start? So some older kid would look at it for you and tell you it had no compression and that you should go to the shop and ask for a can of compression. As funny as it may of seemed back then, I actually discovered that, that can of compression worked really well in my tyres.
