Well, the CO2 certainly made my life easier today during the ATB ride - after suffering a tack puncture flying downhill.
I used my Lezyne Road Drive mini pump to inflate the tyre to around 20-30psi (which took all of about 5 seconds) and then used the CO2 to inflate back up to around 120psi.
I noticed so many people on the side of the road repairing punctures today and it would be interesting to know what percentage of them used CO2 to re-inflate.
I think the percentage would be very high.

I carry a metal pump and a CO2 inflator.
I use the CO2 to re-inflate if I have a puncture.
The pump is also useful. I use that to prod any busybody who queries my decisions about my choice of equipment and technique until they go away.
After all, I don't criticise their funny looking bicycle, sandals or beard, so why are they being critical of how I choose to reinflate my tyres?
My bike blog. Long on rumination, rambling and opinion. Why let facts ruin everything?
There are a great invention and the pump combo is even better. I just wish riders would put the spent cylinders in their jersey pockets and take them home to recycle rather than chuck them in the gutter as I have seen in Adelaide lots of times.
my pump seconds as an AMAD (anti-magpie attack device), and ADAD ( " -dog " ")
the good thing about a pump though is you don't discredit yourself by stopping and offering to help others with a flat tire.
