N2 is the best thing to put in your tyres, it does not permutate(is that a word) through the tyre wall as quickly as that funny air Robo does not like.

Yes, but 'Air' contains approx 78% Nitrogen and approx 21% Oxygen.
So it's the 'replacement' of the Oxygen that's most relevant.

I think you mean 'permeate' (and I had to correct my spelling!). Nitrogen has larger molecules so doesn't leak out so quickly. But personally I think for a road bike it isn't worth it.
Never ride faster than your Angel can fly.

It's the foreign made tyres like my post said, not the Air inside... :028:

Not up here in Scotland we only have pure air, the kind Robo likes, none of that nitrogen contamination. We even put it in tins and sell it to the Yank tourists. :164:

I've noticed on my new pr 4 tyres that the strip on the right side is around 4mm and on the left around 20mm. I mainly ride twisty roads with few if any roundabouts.
I know that I'm more confident on right hand bends than left. My question is, is everyone the same or do I just need to "man up". :027:

Try riding the camber on the RH side of the road Andrew.
It may even things up a bit.
