I'd really recommend the Hybrid Pump, it's great for ensuring the puncture has been repaired and the tube is in correctly before blasting it with a cartridge. It's also an absolute last resort if you run out of cartridges.
Personally I prefer to carry the Lezyne micro pump it's a surprisingly capable floor pump for its size. Never need a cartridge again. wiggle.co.uk/lez…ge/

Absolutely agree, I've got one in my road bike tool kit and one in my mountain bike tool kit - the most reliable mini pump I've ever had, not sure about fixing it to the frame for ease of transport, wouldn't like to get it covered in mud/salt water, but a top not notch piece of equipment.

I really don't understand the need to use CO2, never found them that good, or to be honest fast, since the finding and fixing of the puncture is the long part of the job. Seems an expensive extra to add to the cost of having a puncture. On the flip side, after half a dozen punctures in the winter, you can at least justify the cost of the Lezyne on savings over CO2 cylinders.

That little Lifeline pump/inflater is great, surprising considering its size and price.
last time i ordered these they actually supplied nitrous oxide

needless to say I had the last laugh.

That looks a little big to stick in your jerseys back pocket though? I get it for commuting or mtb where you're carrying a bag...

You can't reinflate a tubeless tyre trailside or roadside without a cartridge though, that's why people carry them (aside from the tiny size). You cover all your bases and just carry as many cartridges as you think you need.

I always use cartridges, especially at this time of year when your fingers are cold. Couple of second and the tyre inflated.
Are the cartridges the same as CO2 powerlets for airguns?

EDIT:Ah no, i see they are threaded, never mind.

Can you fit this in your back pocket?
Filled with what I breathe out, for £10! I could make some money here!

Ordered one for my sodastream but turns out it won't fit. Cold

From a reviewer on Wiggle:
"... good for sticking in my backpack on commute but a little to big to stick in the back of jersey pocket when out at the weekends"
They should put warnings on these as the co2 cartridge becomes freezing cold when in use. You will need to use a glove or buy a neoprene cartridge cover to protect your hands.
so you FAFF about taking off the wheel, replacing the tube and tyre, and then you save yourself 10 seconds of pumping by using cO2 ?

Maybe on a racer but mtb tyres certainly don't go up in 10 seconds

​I have this and found the manual pump is completely useless, co2 part of it is great though.
How long does the decompressed air last after re-inflating, hours or days?

It is advised you check your tyres before every ride , but yes you are quite right co2 loses its pressure over time

I tend to re-inflate with normal air at the first opportunity. You definitely notice the tyre losing pressure faster with just co2.

Thanks, I was wondering this as co2 is different to the air mixture used to inflate a tyre via a traditional type pump, i.e: 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, and less than 1% of argon, carbon dioxide, and other gases.
It was a serious question, as carbon dioxide is not usually used to inflate tyres.
I now have my answer Thanks

Your right it's supposed to go down but I've took my bike out the next week after filling with co2 after a flat and tyres didn't change, had to top them up over time though.

Thank you for replying, fantastic to hear your experience, looks like a brilliant solution!
These are brilliant. Tyre/tube inflates instantly which is fantastic if you're against the clock, out in rubbish weather, or riding in a group. Inflates to far more pressure (circa 120psi) than my puny arms can manage with a mini pump too.

Yes they get cold, and yes you need to deflate and reinflate when you get home. Small price to pay for me.
What is the best mini pump?
Are they all the same, or are some better than others?
Thanks

I swear by the lezyne aluminium cnc machined ones, they come with a detachable nozzle held inside, I have a power-drive on my hybrid, and then a medium (bigger)'sized alloy drive for my mtb backpack.

They pump up quick, and the adaptor has both schrader and presta, fits neat, cool colourways, nice action and feel solid, also come with a bracket to fit under a water bottle bracket. On my mtb I could have got a smaller one but decided for the larger one for volume per pump, rather than weight and size, fits fine in e side of my 6L evoc pack

Pricewise looking at £18-27, but a wise investment and it's one purchase rather than a few failed purchases, I bought and used 2 or 3 before finding the right one.

tredz can be a good price if you do the write a review discount and get the £5 of £30 spend (sometimes it's a £50 spend)

Thank you for the detailed recommendations.
I agree, a well built, variable fitting and easy to use mini pump can be a better investment, than one that is difficult to use, fragile or fail when needed!
I looked at the links, and found what looks like manual pumps, are there any recommendations for the mini pump for use with the CO2 cannisters in this deal?
Thanks again, I have noted this pump when I buy next.
