    Cool idea!

    This is why I frequent this forum. If I get one new idea a month, it's worth it!

    Also, the constant jingling of change will alert those in front of you that you are going to pass!

    This brings up a noober question. Though pumps, CO2 systems, patch kits, and spare tubes come along for the ride (ostensibly for field repairs), how do so few of us get by without pressure gauges?

    • do you use a pump/CO2 system that already has a gauge?
    • do you simply inflate until it feels "close enough"?
    • do you have a trick for gauging proper tire pressure (e.g., a properly inflated tire will bounce X high when dropped from X height or somesuch)
