OK Chris @zebra - Flying Brick ,

I know @Xpat will want one - and I want one too, this one (no battery to go down for the digidisplay!).
Pls send them together to him (because I'm a cheapskate) but, yeah, rest easy, only once you've reopened.

Until then, everyone: Happy New Year!  :thumleft:

I have a 4oz paintball cylinder with adaptor. I also carry a handful of CO2 canisters and a small compressor. Iíll always use the compressor first.

Where  did you get the paintball bomb?

As luck would have it yesterday...
People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day. And doing nothing often leads to the very best kind of something.

Has anyone ever tinkered with installing a valve and a piping system that can screw onto a Soda Stream CO2 bottle? That would do a good few fills.

The old German that stays across the road from me bought a adaptor set from Pretoria South Appliance store that fit on a soda stream bottle. He pumped his hilux tyre with ease. Dont know if you still get the kits.

I also use the co2, fixed a tyre for a lady on Saturday. In addition i have a 2m hose fitted with airhose fittings so i can use the back up vehicle's wheels to get the bead on or to get air form other bikes.

Years ago Mof and I ran out of canisters in the bloody hot sum on the R355. I never drove without a compressor again.
