.. this topics been covered many times
you would have to keep pumping your tires up due the the helium molecules being alot smaller and escaping the tube,

Most likely would make too much of a difference.

dude seriously? havent you seen mythbusters or anything? they tested helium footballs vs normal footballs, and the helium balls generally went about a foot farther...you put helium in your tires and you'll probably lose like 2 oz in weight, if that even...and not to mention gstring02 is right, helium would be far more unstable compared to normal air

have you ever seen a helium filled ballon after a day? that would be your tires every day

"The ratio of hours of building and maintaining trails is astronomically skewed in the wrong direction, but the pay off is indescribably worth it."

actually the regualar air went faster, due to it being heavier causing it to have a faster velocity

It's a good idea, just not very stable.

well its not a good idea seeing as it is unstable lol

and any idea to lose an ounce or two is a silly one, unless you got like 20 ideas that lose an ounce each

its been done before. and if i had a helium tank around i would do it jus to say i have helium in my tires, but its impractical. unless you have 100 inch tires and made it like a hot air balloon bike. thatd be tight. have fun with that

i think its something like helium molecule is 1/3 the wieght of an air molecule ( learned that shit in school) ...........but its just a bad idea, due to the fact that it escapes easily

search it in google it saves like 2.8 grams of weight which is like how much dirt would be stuck to your bike after a couple hours of trail riding its not worth it

DONT DO IT.

since most bike tires hold 110 PSI, that means that if you fill your tires up to 90, thats 180 PSI all together. that means that there is 180 PSI of helium in your tire.

the typical bike weights 25lbs.

your bike, along with you on it, will float away.
