    Yes they shrink... I had to stop using them because, like you, I only ride the bike a few times a year. Love the Nitro mousses and the feeling of not having to worry about a flat at all but not really worth the $$$ if you don't use the bike a lot. Plus... Here is the Southeast... Being able to vary air pressure for different situations is useful.

    If I only rode a bike 3-4 times per year, I would just stick with tubes, IMO.

    One thing you can do is add sections (pie shaped wedges of the mousse rings) both initially to full fill the tire, and later to "reinflate" when they've gone softer to get a little more life out of them. Depending on who you purchase from, some will send you extra wedge material.
