Yes! it takes far more than two or three pumps, but what the heck! when you are in the middle of nowhere, all you have is time instead of an air compressor...

I also take always one of those. If you are going to buy one, be sure it's the 2-ways-inflator one, so you can almost double the performance.

I use one also and half the time I go for a bicycle ride I look down and think "Where's my pump? Damn, it's in my tail bag".

Today I took it out of the bag and when I got to the trails, left it behind the seat of the truck

Luckily, it was not needed

Same story here... why is that?
I don't know why my unconscious always prevent me from buying a second one...

1cool, how Slime performs at high speeds?
I always used it for my enduro bikes, but I have this doubt about the speed...

I only take a hand pump. You can easy seat a bead with them, remember they are design to put 100psi+ into bicycle tyres, thats more than most petrol station pumps will go to.

It's true that it's given me more smiles per mile than any other I've owned. Jesse bags go on next month, can't wait til spring but I'll have to.
