Lifeline cnc co2 inflator push on valve head & 8x16g bottles only £10 (screw on £10.50) @ wiggle delivered

Found 3rd Apr 2016
Seems to be a missprice on the 2x 16g bottles as it's cheaper to buy 3 packs at £1.75 (total £5.25), than the 6 pack @ £5.50

The push on valve adaptor is only £3, or if you prefer a screw on type it's £3.50,
Wiggle are selling the adaptor and two bottles pack for £7, so far better to create your basket yourself, Ie add the adaptor and add the two pack of co2 and then update to quantity 4 in your basket

If you don't need/want the quantity of co2 bottles then spend over a tenner for free delivery otherwise it's £1.99, the bike maintenance stand at £4.99 is a bargain comparable Halfords/Raleigh ones are £11-12

Are you having a laugh man
These are really handy but 16g is not quite enough to inflate a road bike tyre to the right pressure so you want the 20g otherwise it'll end up causing frustration when you most need it. Also it's worth getting a regulated valve head too.
If you use these, take your empties home with you and don't leave them on the roadside! As a cyclist, I'm ashamed by the number of these, along with energy gel wrappers and inner tubes, that I see laying around.

I don't think the ones you see scattered around town on a Saturday or Sunday morning were ones filled with CO2...

I'm sure 16g is normally enough for me to do 1.5 inner tubes 25x700c to circa 90 psi

Totally agree, 16g is easily enough! CO2 is to keep you on the road and get you home, it doesn't replace a track pump!

Regarding the deal, I saw the price yesterday and did wonder if it was a misprice.. Hot from me!
Thanks Op. It applied my platinum discount so ended up having to buy 4*2 to get the free delivery. What a shame.
I was looking at these a little while ago and decided to spend a bit more on a more reliable one. The reviews are a bit hit and miss and given the nature of the item, that's not what you want, 20 miles from home in the pouring rain.

what are people doing with them.. haha terrible reviews, i'd recommend the screw one, screw on the bottle, until the canister is pierced, open valve on tyre, put nozzle on the end and press down (wearing gloves), screw presta valve closed, put item in pocket, off you go..

i think some of the reviewers are making it far more problematic than its meant to be, a simple device to inflate tyres to get you home. once home you should pump up with regular air, as co2 has a tendency to lose psi..

On a commute using the push on co2 head I once forgot to open the innertube valve (in a rush)... The heads seal shot out, with a cloud of co2 after it, looked pretty cool but I couldn't find the seal again...

Luckily I had a canyon hybrid pump with me too.X)

My point being co2 pumps are great for the weekend cycle to get you home, but if you're commuting carry a spare pump with you too don't just rely on one of these!

Yes, it keeps you on the road but you know as well as I do that under-inflating tyres may lead to another puncture shortly after. I guess it's personal preference - I have 20g ones but I have only had to use it once and hope I never have to do it on a long ride or race!

Out of curiosity what PSI do you inflate to?

Depends on your tyre, and interest, I put in between 35-40 but usually do it by feel and eye rather than track pump gage, That's on a mtb and depending on usage though
I've just done two tyres tubeless so can run far Lower pressure now.
Road bikes have a far great psi, I see 110-120 quoted quite a bit.

I run my road and TT clinchers at 110psi (allowing for leakage down to 100psi) and anything around 80, I will pump up again. I run my tubs at 200psi.

Yes, I reckon CO2 will get you out of a tight spot quickly but it's only where I don't want the bulk or weight of a hand-pump when racing but can't risk having no supplies. I'm sure you all know as well but after reinflating with CO2, you are supposed to empty the tyres back at base/home and refill with regular air again.

Yeah the reason I ask is I hear so many people just inflating to the max recommended PSI. Heard some crazy PSI's for 23mm tyres as "that's the best"...oO

I run my 25's at 90 front and 95 rear, 28's are at 85 front 95 rear (commuter - carrying a rucksack). Works for me.
