    I use 72% Nitrogen. Much cheaper than pure nitrogen.

    PS: It's called "air." Neat stuff, really. :)

    Actually, look closely. The gas isn't the things that's burning fiercely, is the aluminized doped fabric on the outer surface -- now that's really cookin' with gas! :)

    I'm in the same boat, my foam wheels are flattened. Anyone having success with the DuBro low bounce wheels?

    Andy, Thanks for that wheel link, and post. Bought some, and got them in 8 days! They are even lighter than I thought, and now my camera doesn't hit the ground when tilting.
