Just get yourself a good MT pump that is more than enough to take care of your needs on the trail and not be stuck with a finite amount of air in a bottle.

I like this one because is has a long lead to for the valve stem which makes it easier to pump up the tires. Mine is several years old and works great.

Little brother to the one above:

This is kind of the same idea in a smaller package. I carry this on the little bike due to over all length.

I have had really good luck with the alloy Lezyne hand pumps.

A Slime Top Off Pump for $10 at walmart has served me well for years, cut the cigarette outlet off, put a SAE plug on so you can plug it into a SAE harness wired to the battery. Many MC shops or auto parts stores sell SAE harnesses for $5

I tried hand pumps and after having to pump up a few flats in one day or regularly wanting to air up back up when on pavement to help reduce knobby wear I went back to this since it really doesn't take much space or weight. Call me lazy. ;)

Thanks for the advice on Seat Concepts - I looked into them quite a while ago and their low seat is only 3/4" lower than stock and that's not nearly enough. On the WRR forums people are getting up to 2" off and I'm going to need all of that. I don't want to go to a link if I don't have to. I'll get it worked out.

Did you call them or email them? They may be able to come up with something special for you.

I have a CO2 thingy that also works as a hand pump. I forget the brand, but having used it for both I think it's a good compromise

Put high heels on those riding boots. Seriously I saw a rider have 2" lifts on her riding boots. Crazy stuff but it worked for her.

as long you're registered and your name got called, you win.

we won't be calling numbers this time, but names. if you don't put your adv handle or a proxy name..... next ticket please.
So we don't have to be present to win.

And we won't know when dinner time ends until we get our name tags.

FWIW I ask because I tend to ride until dusk and I'm hopeful that I'll still get to eat if I get back @ past sunset. (Sunset looks to be ~7:15)

This ^^^^

I removed the guts and threw away the housing, It packs away in a crown-royal bag and fits under a seat, side bag, or top bag/box. Great for flats or airing up. You just have to keep it out of the dirt, and it gets hot so you have to let cool for a few minutes before stowing away again.

One of the problems I have with hand pumps is getting enough pressure to seat the bead. Since they are designed for bicyle tires their volume is quite low, so it takes a thousand pumps to get pressure. No thanks for doing that three times in a day.

+1 on this set up. If you already have a SAE connector for a battery tender this is a no brainer. With the housing removed the pump fits in the tool pouch of my MoJavi bag along with the KTM tool kit.

We can cut it as low as you want, but at the height you will not have any semblance of comfort left.
What is more important to you, comfort, or height.

Since I run the Tubliss setup I carry two pumps; Lezyne Micro Floor Drive, High Pressure and High Volume. Very nice units and I can always find a place for them. http://www.lezyne.com/en/products/ha...r-drive-hp-hpg

I wasn't sure about air at PSR so I have plans to bring a portable air compressor. Surely one of the full hook-up RV'ers will share their electricity should it be needed for tires, etc. I'm happy to share the compressor too; just look me up, and bring it back when you are thru!!

Next time I take a long distance off pavement ride I will seriously consider getting one of these http://www.lezyne.com/en/products/fl...pressure#tab-2 and put it in my duffel. With a little work I bet the handle could be made quick-release and the foot could be modified to remove one fixed leg. Man, would that make it easy to fill the tube/tire and seat the bead.
