I'm thinking about buying this little gizmo, but I'm not sure if it'll be less work than to pump a tire full of air by hand.
I'd pass on that.

I carry an electric pump, think it came from Aerostich or some such. Some guys like one made by slime. Has served me well so far. Might go with manual pump if rtw or really concerned about the weight (guessing 1 pound.) Nice time saver as instead of minutes pumping, rolling up tools and getting trail ready while filling up (which happens pretty damn quick.)

It sounds like you were posting your pics/albums to Apple's MobilMe site. I was, and Apple killed MobilMe several months ago. I then went to Flickr and paid $24 I believe for a premium posting account. Works great. Then I decided to nuke some of my albums on my iMac and re-post them on Flickr with higher resolution. As a result, my older Flickr pictures disappeared. Don't you just love technology!

Cheers,

+1 - works great and quickish too. I didn't think it was particularly noisy though.

A friend of mine have the same slime pump. It works great.
But I was thinking about avoiding the bulkiness of it, as I like to ride with just a waist tool-bag and a water bag. I'm not a fan of strapping luggage to the bike unless I really have to.
I guess I'll stay with the hand pump.

I stripped all the plastic of my slime pump just have the pump, motor, and hose. The whole package is the size of my fist.
It goes everywhere I ride.

That thing gets hot. How long does it take to cool so you can pack it without the plastic on it ?

its cool by the time you put the tire back on your bike and collect all your tools.

The hard part is coming ... It's what in the ECU that really matters ...
