will a co2 pump inflate an average mtn bike tire to full pressure (60lbs or so)? or is there a limit?

Best Answer Responded on

Phillip, the limit on most co2 dispensers is typically dependent on the CO2 cartridge and not the actual system. According to the Lezyne website (http://www.lezyne.com/co2-systems#panel-5) even a 25g cartridge will only inflate a mountain bike tire to 40psi or 2.8 bar. This would be plenty for a mountain bike tire, 60lbs is way too much for most riding.
