Booster hand pump does it exist.

Hi .
i have come across these cool floor pumps with a booster tank . that allows you to use them like an air compressor . i think this is a great type of pump . maybe all pumps should have this feature . i was wondering if anyone has seen a hand pump version . i really dont want to have to invest in co2 , i really want to stay with a manual pump to ensure i will be able to inflate . but also im going into the tubless realm and i have to be prepared to change up my road side repair kit . any advice would be swell .thanks bye ...

What you really need is a way to hook the two tires together, and blow from one tire to the other.

Double ended hose with a valve in the middle.

Found this page.

I'm surprised such a device doesn't already exist. Somewhere.

Uh...Explain your thinking behind this. You don't need anything special to inflate a mounted tubeless tire.

There are a couple or three brands of compressed air cylinders for water bottle cages on the market. Like this one: https://ride-air.com/

i really dont want to have to invest in co2

What sort of investment do you think you're making? You can get an inflator and a couple of cartridges for ~$12

If you get a flat with tubeless on the side of the road or trail, it's because you had a tear in the tire too big for sealant to stop the leak. If this happens, you need to have something with you to boot the hole and just put in a spare inner tube to get you home. No need for anything special here pump wise.

There are situations where the puncture seals but you have lost a good amount of air before that happens so you need a source. But also in that case you don't need anything special.

BTW...I find it interesting that the OP joined BF during the same month that a user with a reference to providence in his name was permanently banned from BF and made his first post the day after than ban was announced.
