Don't Deflate For Airline Travel - People may tell you to let the air out of your tires before taking your bike with you on a flight. They say this because they think the tires might explode when the cargo bay de-pressurizes. Not! There's simply no risk to the tires and deflating them will just mean you have to fully inflate the tires before you can ride when you reach your destination. This is an unnecessary hassle and not much fun if all you have is a mini-pump!
