as i say you may have to track down a couple of Co2 carts (it takes both threaded and non threaded) as i've only got the 1 left and may need that in an emergency :lol: .

they are pretty much 1 shot wonders though, if you're lucky you can get enough pressure into both tyres with 1 cart then top up with track pump.

Think I found a co2 pump in a bag of old stuff I inherited with a bike while rummaging just now in the cellar. Looks threadless. Looks like you just hold valve against tyre valve and press lever - nothing to grip it on/lock it on like normal pumps - is this right?

although mine has a locking lever it is in no way strong enough to keep it on the valve against the pressure of the Co2, so i still have to hold it on quite firmly.

it's probably about the same hill wise, fair bit shorter in distance though.
