Pretty much anything not covered by the topics above. Short lived production bikes or vehicles, Electrical, Tires, Paint, Brakes, etc. Use this for tech questions, and "Shoot the Bull" for general conversation, no tech.
As far as silicone goes, no way I'd trust my life to a smear on the inside of the rim. I don't like it in any application, and I'm a home builder by trade!
Tires are a place I never scrimp or cut corners (no pun intended). They are the only thing holding you on the road, and the only way your brakes work. What's your life worth!

The nitrogen molecule is larger and does not leak out nearly as quickly. Also doesn't fluctuate pressure with temprature as much. Also much dryer inside the tire. Doesn't rust the rim. We sell it for $19.95
I use a special proprietary mixture of about 78% nitrogen, and about 21% oxygen, and the rest mostly argon, processed through a miracle known as a line-dryer.
