    Have to say........ The novelty of inflating a tyre in an instant, with approximately 1000th of the energy required to do it by hand, is still right up there for me! The first time I used a co2 cartridge.........and ended up with my fingers stuck to it, was the only time I needed reminding to make sure I kept the cycling gloves on through the massively joyous inflation process.

    Wrap a bit of inner tube around, no problems then.

    Which is why most co2 pumps are either have a screw on sleeve or a foam/rubber boot to slide over. He deserved it for being a bit thick imo

    No I'm not kidding. What else would you expect from holding a metal tank of compressed gas with your bare hand, and releasing pressure?

    While the bike's up on a stand: I wonder whether anybody else likes to have their bell up on the bars where they're literally under your thumb. (Because that's where my hands are 99% of the time.) IMG_2460.JPG

    No, I have been busy today, fettling.

  14. My bars are pretty uncluttered, one bike has a garmin out front mount the other a stem mount. There's usually not more than that unless I riding at night then there's at least one front light maybe two :-/
