Portable Pump vs CO2?
The struggle is real when you're trying to decide between a portable pump or CO2 cartridges for your bike.
- Minimal effort
- Take in less space
- If you botch them, you are SOL.
- Seems wasteful
- Easier to use
- More eco-friendly
- 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.
