Today in Ottawa the temp is -16 (4F) and there's 35cm (15in) of snow on the ground. My bike is hanging up on the wall of my garage and I bus to work. I got to thinking about the air in my tires. My garage isn't heated but I don't think it gets cold enough in there to damage the rubber. Should I deflate the tires (presta valves) or leave them?
I never deflate my tires in the garage. They seem to do it themselves over time. The pressure usually goes down a little bit from being cold too.
You could deflate them if you are worried though.
It was 5 F here this morning, 8" of snow on the ground, snow falling (2-3" expected today).
Ride home might be interesting...
I only deflate when it gets really hot or significant change in altitude, like going on a plane.
This tends to happen to ME too! LOL!! Esp. if biking up the altitude when it's hot...
