Never seen anyone that races do it so I doubt it is even worth the trouble.

Nitrogen is a gas and is still affected by changes in ambient temperature (about one psi for every 10 Fahrenheit). Nitrogen filled tires will require pressure be added during the fall/winter months as ambient temperatures and tire pressures drop. Nitrogen is good but can't change the laws of physics.

I know this is a bike thread

I worked at a shop with a nitrogen machine and it's a waist of customers money IMO. Yes we literally had to suck the air of the tires then reinflate them with nitrogen. The problem is you have to pay to get them topped off. They all run low eventually and most people top them off with FREE air. So you have to do the whole process again if you run low and just need 5psi of nitrogen. The 2nd issue is tires leak, Not too many people are going to pay top dollar to properly seal their tires. Valve stems leak. Valve cores leak, beads leak and that infamous nail.

2. All the videos I watch on this subject not 1 could say that it infact did X, Y, & Z. They all used vague words like " claimed" "suppose to" "possibly" "might " & "may" .

3. Track videos I didn't see not much or great enough time difference to justify cost.
