Dump the pump.
 
I just went to http://www.genuineinnovations.com/ to find out some info on the different CO2 inflators. Then i got distracted and couldn't remember what i went there for. I love the companies that haven't caved in and ditched the semi clad nekkid models. God knows everyone is pressuring them to do so.

After all, when we are talking Co2 inflators, isn't that the first thing that comes to your mind?

I have never owned a CO2 pump that worked right. And I've had 3 of them. My mini hand pump works just fine.

The first thing that comes to mind when I hear of CO2 pumps is poor craftsmanship and a waste of money.

My only pump is a little frame pump. That thing gives you strong wrist muscles.

Actually the add is telling you to DUMP the pump! They aren't referring to the combo units that i am aware of.

+1 I have the exact same pump, and it rocks. Especially to top off tires. However if it isn't an emergency I will still use my floor pump.

Hmmm, I use a compressor. Awful heavy to carry around, need a looooong extension cord, but ya can't beat the push-button convenience. :D

I have a innovations C02 thingie. It works great and is Uber tiny. It looks like a tiny crack pipe or a samll fitting. weighs practically nothing. I love it and have not carried a pump of any kind in over ten years. However..the best Co2 inflater/adapter thingie I ever owned I gave to my younger brother last year. I think it was a Pedro's..maybe. And it was bigger with a blue knurled section on it and it freakin' rocked!! Alas..after I gave it to him I have been unable to find another one. But the Innovations ones work quite well.

Oh yeah...the girls cute too. Even more sexy if "Jenny Lee" as you call her is a cyclist. Vaarooom.:p

Will the woman in the pump advertisement help me pedal my tandem?:)
