    I don't use it, but a neighbor has had it done.
    Pros, it stays dryer and doesn't expand like compressed air.
    Cons, at the end of the trail you've aired down for, refilling stations are few and far.
    But you do get those cool green valve stem caps.

    I air down and back up many many times a year so I only use a 78% blend of nitrogen.

    Switch to the 78% nitrogen blend. I guarantee it's available everywhere.
