I typically will clean, lube. let some air out, and wipe the tires down with ArmorAll. It helps keep the tire compound supple and seems to help inhibit the alligator cracking in the sidewalls.

Won them the eurovision, so it did.

When I was young I always had a thing for the blonde one, but as I got older, the brunette started looking a bit foxy.

Is it advisable to deflate tyres when not using a bike for a few months?


No. It will save a few joules when you come to pump them up again. :idea:

Really?

Colour me deflated, why in the 70s and early 80s, I had this notion that with a wild hair they could be very bad.
