I'm still in the very early stages of planning a long-distance tour but I've been doing some thinking on tire inflation.
What are everyone's thoughts on CO2 cartridges versus carrying a hand pump? I can see the benefits of less weight but are the cartridges really cracked up to what they're supposed to be or am I better off investing in a quality hand pump instead?
One downside I can immediately foresee is needing to stock up and potentially running out of cartridges while on tour. Any other pros and cons?
