CO2 versus carrying an infinite supply of air via a tiny pump like the
Topeak Micro Rocket, which weighs 65 gm versus two 16 gram CO2
cartridges (117 grams), since you still need the CO2 inflater.


The logic is pretty simple. *The CO2 will work a lot faster than a
little hand pump.
The hand pumps can be quite frustrating to properly fill a tube.


Wow, I've never been frustrated using a hand pump. Granted I'm not using
the really tiny pumps, just the small pumps.


I have, that's why I mentioned it. It was probably just a crappy pump
or just too small.

You missed his point. He was saying, more or less "What do you do after you
use up all of your CO2 cartridges and then get another flat?" *I carry CO2,
but I also carry a Topeak pump. It's the Boy Scout motto: *"Be Prepared!"

I've never had more than one flat at a time. *I can see it if you run
into some nasty debris. *That's when you call your wife *I don't
see any issue in carrying both.


What, CO2 and a wife?


Man, and I thought using CO2 was expensive!
