Didin't pay $189 as I brought it from http://Bike24.net and I cannot take a compressor to the trailhead plus I prefer if possible to have mutli-functionality ...
Interesting subject - Bike24 do have the best prices I've been able to find for the Bontrager TLR Flash and several other offerings. But it's only a matter of a few dollars less than the RRP once shipping costs are added.
I agree that such a pump offers the greatest convenience, but It's a high price to pay considering I'll probably only need to seat tubeless tyres once or maybe twice per year.
Nonetheless, here are the results of my further research, which may be of useful reference to anyone else needing to mount tubeless tyres.
In descending price order:
Topeak JoeBlow Booster Bike24 €126.01 + shipping €19.95 = €145.96 ($AUD217.39)
Lezyne Pressure Over Drive Bike24 €117.56 + shipping €19.95 = €137.51 ($AUD204.81)
This is the cheapest model, there is an alloy version and another with a digital pressure gauge.
Bontrager Flash Charger TLR Bike24 - €105.87 + shipping €19.95 = €125.82 ($AUD187.42)
Giyo AIR TANK Cell Bikes - $119.95 + free shipping
Airshot Pushys - $99.99 + shipping $10.00 = $109.99 Air tank only - pump not included.
Airwave AirBlast Chain Reaction Cycles - $104.99 + free shipping
My choice? The Airwave Airblast. Buy button clicked.
