Just to hit the middle of the road with pump options, I'll point out a wonderful line of hand pumps made for bicycles but capable of doing the job for the TW community as well. They are Topeak Road Morph (master blaster) or better yet the Topeak Mountain Morph (probably the Master Blaster too, but mine is packed away and thus not visible to check). They are much smaller than Mr. Giz's floor pump but work the same way (have a tiny foot plate to stand on and a horizontal folding handle that lets you pump harder, longer, and more comfortably than most slender bike pumps). But wait there's more (they have a pressure gauge built into the hose so you get an approximation of where you are with pressure). Yes they will be slower than the floor pump but take up not nearly as much room. Yes they cost more (about $26) but I buy mine at REI's scratch and dent sale because many REI customers find them too complex or hard to use (they want it easy). Basically you are talking about carrying a pump that is the size of an old time road flare. Mind you if I was going on an overnighter I'd carry my slime pump (12 v), and a bottle of slime to allow me to limp home with almost anything but a major rip, but if I didn't want to go electric or wanted to save a bit of room, I'd carry the Mountain Morph bike pump (actually most of my day rides are with no pump or provision for flats, but I'm within 50 miles of home and 10 miles of a pavement with abundant traffic. I'd be curious as to how many CO2 cartridges it takes to air a back tire on a tw. I've used them on a tandem bicycle to get the high pressures needed and btw the MORPH pumps are the only bike pumps that meet the needs of the tandem that I have encountered. CO2 might be fine if everything works right the first shot, but I'm presuming that I might have to limp home with a slower leak than when it went flat but still significant enough that I might have to re-air every xx miles (thus I want a pump, not a mountain of co2 cartridges).
BTW the REI scratch and dent for Albuquerque is 31 December (members only) and its an orgy of equipment at 30 cents on the dollar or less (returned, one of a kind, damaged, or blemmed, but sometimes just returned because some yahood didn't like the feel, or understand how to use the product. Sorry for the advert for REI but we are into the outdoors are we not? Happy New Year everybody. Tom
