Default Aluminum Frame Life Expectancy

That happens even with air. Lose about 10 lb. a week from my tires. Would be
even faster with hydrogen.

with Helium?

Or, living life on the edge, filling them with Hydrogen....


Hydrogen molecules are very small, so pressure loss would occur rapidly
requiring frequent reinflation of the tires.

Would be even faster with helium. Hydrogen molecules, H2, take up
slightly more space than helium, which is inert and is only a single
atom.
