Tire inflator that you like?
I just replaced the front tire on the A16 and everything was cool. Then I took the CB200 a little excercise, but it's front tire was low, so I started to inflate it with the bicycle pump and it failed, broke, FUBAR. So now I'm thinking about what to use instead of a bicycle pump. I looked at several 12 volt cig lighter pumps, but I know they're pretty wimpy. One that I saw looked pretty good but it was 60 bucks. For that price I might as well get a full blown compressor for the shop and be able to use it for other things as well.
On the other hand, what do you folks take along when you are on the road/trail? The CO2 cartridge system looks like the most effective and compact option. Does anyone make a reliable compact 12 volt compressor that would be reasonable to take along? Yanno, one good thing about taking a trek as a group, would obviously be sharing of common tools and such, to make more room for more important things like fishing gear and an air mattress(ooh, I may have cornered myself there).
Hopefully, I'll be getting muddy tomorrow. There's some back roads that need exploring and it's not supposed to rain, but the coast range is completely saturated, so it should be fun.
