nitrogen would me more appropriate my friend,

it doesn't expand or contract iin density with temperature like other gases, even air.

acura uses is in their rsx model and some other higher level car manufactures do it too.

it's not to save weight though, it's to keep the pressure changing when tires heat up during " spirited " driving ,

it would just leak our via the seatpost but i guess they would modify that by adding things to seal it but that would probably just add the weight back that helium would take off

i think he was thinking that the original poster said " fill the FRAME " up with helium ?

i'm not to sure, that took alot of cognitive attention to decipher... and personally i don't like thinking unless i'm getting paid to do it !

The rubber that most tubes are made out of isn't dense enough to hold the helium, because helium is a lot less dense than normal air. That's what I've heard at least

I would do nothing except leak and be irritating. My advice, stick with regular air. MYTH busters did a test like this with footballs, to see if helium ones flew farther than air filled ones. No real difference.
