    You could get a shrader to presta adapter for $1 at your lbs then just use a standard pressure gauge.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    If you have schrader valves then you can get a pressure gauge at any auto parts store. Be sure it hasa high enough range for your tires.

    If you really meant that you need a gauge for preta valves, then you can either buy a presta gauge or use an adapter if you don't want to get a pump with a gauge. better to get a pump though. If you are going to check pressure, you may as well top off the tires anyway.
