We use SMC pneumatic fittings at work so that is what I used. I have seen stuff at Harbor Freight, Lowes and Home Depot that will work just as well.

It takes about two minutes to fully inflate a flat tire. That and sticky worms have saved my a$$ more than once.
I really like this idea Picture, please?

Unfortunately, True Value stores, at least around here are nearly all gone. The last one is scheduled to close 12/15.

I bought one in Bar Harbor, Maine this morning. $19.95 and the $15 rebate coupon was at the register. They had plenty of them.

Just bought one at my local true value. They had a full shelf of them with the rebate taped to it.

Now all I have to do is drop it in the mail and wait 8-12 weeks...

I have a smaller one on my wee already but for free I couldn't say no! In my trucks toolbox it goes!

I went by the local True Value and got a rain check. They called my yesterday and were holding one for me.
I'd already printed the rebate off the computer so I was set to send in the paper work.
Took it out to the garage and deflated a spare tire and gave it a go. Worked really well. it's lost a couple pounds getting the thing loose from the tire but the's OK.
I dismantled the case and wound up the cord around the basic pump unit and it it stores in a bag under the seat, no problem.

Not great pictures but you can see the compressor gears. You can also see the compressor body covered in the silty sand from my Utah Backcountry Discovery Route trip that I took in September. Maybe time for my annual "hose the bike off".

I checked out the AeroStitch ad I got in the Email this morning. They offer a similar pump without the gauge for a miserly 36 bucks. Such a deal I tell you.
Admittedly, some folks take the plastic case away and install a metal of plastic guard around the gears that make it a bit safer. But to charge all that much money is horrible, man!

If this anything like the old one I have, if you open the case, there is little inside and it will shrink into a small bundle that fits well under the seat in a shop rag.
Mine fits with no problem, case intact and wrapped in bubble wrap. Slips in right back there next to the taillight, and the tool kit is moved forward. The problem with removing the case is how to handle the thing when it's pumping -- those mofos get HOT!
