    Pump me up!

    I changed out my rear tire yesterday for a more appropiate gravel grinder and in the process found a thorn hole in the tube. I ended up pumping the tire up 4 times. I don't have an air compressor at my at my clinic so I used my floor pump, which I thought was a higher volume pump. Are there any pumps out there that work better on these 4 inch tires or am I just a wimpy, lazy old man?
    (Will spring ever come to the midwest?)

    Spring will never come, or at least stay. Looks like another straight from winter to summer year again. Yay Nebraska!

    I wouldn't spend any more cash on a floor pump, get a cheap plug in portable compressor. They run about $35 at Home Improvement stores.

    I just picked up a Lezyne HV pump. Makes a huge difference.

    I would agree with nakedbabytoes. I own more than one large compressor but I most often use an emergency rechargeable air compressor that has a built in gauge.

    Something like this:
    RoadPro RPAT-715 12V Rechargeable Air Compressor/Jumpstart/Emergency System - Smarthome
