Over time, the air pressure in your tires goes down. If you do not use a tire pump from time to time to pump the tires back up again, you may encounter problems such as flat tire, bent rims, broken spokes, and a lot of unneccessary hassle. There are two main types of pumps: floor pumps and frame pumps. They both work well, and we carry several different models by Specialized, Topeak, and Crank Bros.
Another option is the CO2 inflator. This is a device that uses a high-pressure CO2 cartridge to inflate a tire. These can be very convenient, and are much quicker than using a hand pump, but you must be certain the tube repair is done correctly the first time. A single pump cartridge will only give you one shot at inflating your tire. Also, refill cartridges must be purchased, making this option more expensive than a frame pump.
