Flat's are a bummer, but if you can't avoid them it's best to be prepared with a couple of these in your pack. These 16 gram cartridges are perfect for filling your 26er back up without having to deal with a hand pump. Don't forget an inflator to replace the CO2 with air once you get home.
I ride my mountain bike 2-4 times/week here in Park City. I try to clean it every week or so and reapply Dumonde to my chain afterwards to help keep everything in good shape. It works great and is reasonably priced.
I ride a lot of lifts and go through brake pads quicker than I'd care to admit. These work as advertised and are really easy to replace. I prefer metallic pads for their longer life, any increase in sound doesn't bother me.
Psyched on this inflator so far. It's easy to use and has been thoughtfully designed. I particularly like the trigger's ability to control the flow of CO2. The insulation and protection that the canister provides is also a great feature. As mentioned in the description, it's compatible with both Schrader or Presta valves and the canister's big enough to fit cartridges up to 16g.
These 20g cartridges are rated by Innovations to fill up a 29" mountain bike tire to 43 psi or two 26" tires to 24 psi. These are a lifesaver to have on the trail when you get caught with a flat. They involve much less work than a hand pump and can easily achieve higher pressures. Don't forget an inflator and to replace the CO2 with air once you get home.
I've always found the process of manually measuring the sag of my fork and shock stressful. Fox's suspension pump is affordable and simplifies the entire process by eliminating those measurements and any subsequent arithmetic. It's easy: just google the recommend psi for your weight and fork/shock. And then pump. Don't forget to add an additional 5 psi or so for the air contained within the pump's hose.
