    It doesn't really but the ones with a turnable valve are easier to use I think

    FWIW I used my cheap and cheerful push fit CO2 pump as above only yesterday (when I ran over a huge unseen pothole riding in a group) and I wouldn't change it. I have seen mates fiddling around with more complex inflators before now and felt glad/smug that I'd kept it simple ;-)

    I also use the smaller 12g cartridges which are perfect for one road tyre, rather than the 16g ones which always have a bit left over (and is invariably wasted as it leaks out in storage) and more suited to a MTB volume tyre.
