    Seeking advice on CO-2 catridge trigger mechanisms

    Greetings from the far side,

    I would like to purchase the trigger mechanism to mke use of CO-2 catridges easier. What do y'all recommend for type, brand, and place to buy?

    Define "easier" --

    I'll narrow it down to just two models -- the Air Chuck SL (or the newer Elite) and Ultraflate Plus, both from Genuine Innovations.

    http://www.genuineinnovations.com/bi...late-plus.html

    The Air Chuck is nice because it's tiny and can easily be modulated to give a quick squirt for partial inflation, like when you're about to put the tube into the tire. But, it only works with threaded cartridges.

    The Ultraflate works with any CO2 cartridge you can find, including the cheap nonthreaded 12g ones you can buy by the gross at Wal-Mart.

    You don't need to bother with anything else for CO2. For a hand pump, I'd check out Lyzene.

    yeah, I figure my question is the equivalent of asking which oil filter (oil, tire, etc.) is best on my XXXXXX motorcycle; likely to be more than one or two opinions

    these are not the best for clinchers but, this is my prefered inflator. no valves no triggers just screw it on the valve stem, screw on and open the CO2 and presto tires is inflated.




    the major downside is they don't seem be available here in the states. http://www.xxcycle.com/adaptateur-ai...lateur,,en.php
