It's not new... they've been doing it since before you were in diapers!

The tubes just drag you down anyway... you get more horsepower running pure air.

Only advantage is to not have to mess with a tube. and what i did to convert cost about $5 per wheel, so it's the same as the tube and the tube that ISN'T in there will never get punctured.

So what happens when you need to tighten the spokes?? Do you have to take the tire off and reseal

i've read that with this type of riding, (non jumping and minimal bouncing of the rim/tire) the chances of the spokes loosening are slim. It's possible tho and i'll cross that bridge when i get there.

hopefully, all will go well. I will def. keep you guys updated on it.

If you'll notice and prolly not a good enough picture of it, i have the seal extended past the nipple so that it SHOULD allow me to tighten if needed without any worries of it leaking air.

you guys worry too much, just do it to experiment and see what happens.

I fixed up a "Red Bull" Catch can "system" to the right side of the swing arm last night.

I'm tossing around some ideas in my head for a different bracketing method, one other than zip ties. I'm thinking of using a hose clamp or something similar to that. drill and tap a hole in the top of the swing arm for the attachment of the hose clamp. whatcha think?

i have a model airplanes fuel tank to rig up as a catch tank. i haven't done it yet. should be spill proof.

i think the redbull idea would work well, just make sure you put a large piece of sponge in it so when you crash it doesn't all spill out.

as far as mounting methods are concered, I think I am going to be using zip ties.

rectangular prism. I want to goto another hobby store to see if they would have a cylindrically shaped tank. It cost me $3, and has a cap that allows a few hoses to come in and also vent. i'd like to find a one way valve for the vent line.
