I’ve had my Machine Mart comprssor for about 25 years and it gets weekly use 😉Posted 4 years ago
Would something like this work?Posted 4 years agoNickSubscriber
The machine mart one might work, just because it can apparently do 250psi doesn’t mean it will do it quickly, and quickly is what you want when getting tubeless tyres to fit.
I bought one from Aldi, it was about 40 quid, does the job nicely, but I’m glad I had a pair of ear defenders!Posted 4 years ago
Stanley one looks good and there is a Screwfix local to me.
What is the Wolf one like? Is this one any good?Posted 4 years agoHerman ShakeMember
The 9p ghetto compressor is easy to make and works like a charm. A little blu-tak around the holes helps it seal better if necessary. Removing the valve cores also makes it more effective. Mine seats tyres at 40psi with the cores out.
I use schraeder valves on duct tape converted 719s, the cores are easily removed/replaced and fluid top up can be done through them without disturbing the precious bead seal. Loosening the valves to let the bead sit around, rather than on the rubber really helps, as does building up the rim with a few extra wraps of tape. Not only will this help inflate, it reduces burping due to snugness.
I’ve seen a fence sprayer pump thing used as a compressor but it didn’t seem as good as the 9p wonder due to the flimsy, built in handle.Posted 4 years ago
Can’t even get a lever in to remove the tyre and fit a tube without wrecking the yellow tape!
That Screwfix compressor Liftman linked to is looking more and more tempting. Anyone got any other recommendations, or recommend against the Screwfix Stanley compressor?Posted 3 years ago
I bought this accessory pack below
You only really need the airline and the tyre inflator, but the rest of the stuff might come in handy one day.
So the whole compressor + tools came to £109Posted 3 years ago
@julians sounds good. It worked without a hitch I take it?
@matther01 the SGS compressor looked decent, but the Prestaflator came to about £30-£55 shipped from the US! There’ll probably be additional charges for duty/tax and it doesn’t include the airline either.
This jobber looks good for the money though. Reckon it will do the trick? Comes in cheaper than the Screwfix compressor and free next day delivery means I don’t need to drive there.Posted 3 years ago
Inflate a tyre for a man and he can ride for 6 months, buy him a compressor and he can ride forever.
Or he can pump furiously .
Horses for courses, compressor is the no hassle way. Ive struggled over tbe past 2 years with track/foot pump/going to kwikfit, I shouldve got a compressor two years agoPosted 3 years agonickcSubscriber
Aye, OPs money he can spend it as he wishes, and I’ve often had to walk away from a non inflating tubeless before throwing the whole lot in the bin.
But they normally end up getting inflated, and as much as I’ve wanted to buy one I’ve never had to resort to a compressor. Co2 is my measure of last resort and its never let me downPosted 3 years ago
£100 to inflate a tyre?
In the words of Mario Balotelli “because I am rich”.
I was thinking about the smaller compressor for the portability. Also means a bit of space saving in the garage. I guess I can use it as a blower if I wanted to as well.Posted 3 years ago
