    let some of the pressure out (leave enough in so that the tyres keep their shape) and hang em up out of the way...

    Try to hang them in a place not in direct light.

    When I was young my tortoise used to hibernate in winter just like your wheels. We used to put it in a cardboard box full of straw and leave it in the loft, maybe you could try the same?


    Like a streak of lightnin' flashin' cross the sky,
    Like the swiftest arrow whizzin' from a bow,
    Like a mighty cannonball he seems to fly.
    You'll hear about him ever'where you go.

    Mine (along with the rest of the bike) will shortly get a thorough strip down, clean and re-assembly along with lashings of polish :lol:

    Once that's all done the whole lot will go up into the loft until the sun starts peaking it's head out again :lol:

    (or it might just stay in the study, tyres slightly deflated and all slightly dirty) :lol:
