Portable Pump vs CO2?

Portable Pump vs CO2?

The struggle is real when you're trying to decide between a portable pump or CO2 cartridges for your bike.  

CO2 Cartridges

Pro

  • Quicker
  • Minimal effort  
  • Take in less space

Con

  • If you botch them, you are SOL. 
  • Seems wasteful

Portable Pump

Pro

  • Easier to use
  • More eco-friendly

Con

  • Slower
  • More Expensive initially
  • Takes up more space
  • Harder to pump when your tire is getting full

I ended up going the CO2 route. I don't really want to sit there at the side of the road pumping my bike full of air. Also, I don't like the idea of having to devices for very similar purposes. My floor pump at home will do a much better job at inflating my tires over the portable pump. 

If you're just looking for a regular floor pump, I would recommend this one.
