I'll need a patch kit, I get the understanding of that. But what should I use to inflate the tire? Should I buy a minipump to attach to my frame or get CO2 cartidges.

How do CO2 cartidges work? Are they better than just air?

If anyone could clear things up for me or direct me to a site that has info, I would be grateful. Thanks.
