My first censored at the road side

was unlucky enough to have a nail straight through the tire this am at 06;30 hrs - it slashed the side wall, so that little piece of old side wall sliced up from the last failure came in handy. So stuck it in, and swapped tubes, then a heart stopping moment - my first cylinder inflation!

as recommended by other posts on this site i coughed up £13 for a carbon second wind pump - a manual and CO2 dual pump which I had not used before - it was brilliant, back up to pressure with some to spare, and it was regulated - i am not brave enough just to have CO2, and what if you have multiple punctures? but this combination with gas and a traditional pump
in one combined unit was brilliant

its gone down to £9.50 now in Wiggle - it is brilliant - buy one!
