According to a co-worker of mine, you might check Home Depot. He said he found the same inflator on sale there for $6.50. I'm going to check and verify tonight.

Good find! Heck, I'm just trying to get the TrueValue site Store Finder to work...I don't know if there are any around here. Heck, we didn't have an Ace Hardware til recently. I've seen this brand inflator at Target also but don't know if they have this exact one. I just remember looking at all the "8 minutes" and "15 minutes" type stuff on the packages.

The Home Depot where the Co-worker bought his had no clue what I was talking about. looks like I need to have a chat in the morning with the guy.

Many years ago you could buy a repair kit that had the tool to plug a tire,tire plugs,and a co2 bottle to air it up with,these were great you could roll them up in the little package thing they came with and just about put them in your pocket. I had one but lost track of it when i bought the vol. with the wire wheels,cant help me with a tube.

Slime can be used as a preventitive, I run the Slime for Tubes in mine. (must be the stuff specifically for Tubes)

The Mountain Bike community swear by the stuff.

Works great in 4x4 tyres as well.

The slime works as long as you dont have a tube blowout and the object damaging your tube is less then 1/4" wide.

All right! Now the potential down side: I have read threads advising against carrying a can of WD-40 in saddlebags because, in the head, they can explode. The problem is that aedrosol cans don't do well in heat.

I kinda leaning toward tube tire slime and a co2 inflater. Gonna take a few cartridges to get 36 psi into a c50 rear tire.
