    Charge the fatty

    The pump in gas station can adjust the Psi when pumping in
    Can I charge the air of the fatty using the pump in gas station?

    NO!!!! supposed to use a low-volume pump (shock pump). I think it's the volume of air which causes the damage not so much the pressure.

    Depends actually, but it's not a great idea. Problem is, you can only get line pressure, say 200 PSI. Which is on the high, dangerous end. Check with them, and see what they are regulated at. Many air tools need high pressure, and you'd fill it so fast, you'd have no ability to get say, 120, it would just go straight to the top end, due to the air sleeve being so small in volume. If it's regulated at say, 150, and you ride at 150 though, it's a fine, and safe top off mode. Assuming this makes sense. BE CAREFUL AND ASK FIRST!!!
