|Air Pumps Work Great for Bicycle Balloon Tires...|
Sometimes, we forget that total lack of effort can be WONDERFUL. While I don't disagree with my earlier statements about floor pumps, such as here, in a place like Ocean Shores, MORE POWER to fill up bigger and wider tires can be REAL NICE. Hence, I recently rediscovered just how nice it can be to have a big air tank in the garage, ready for refilling a tire with no notice at all.
Floor pumps are fine for road bikes, with their itty bitty tires, and even for other types of tires, in preference to a 12 volt electric pump, but it's really NICE to fill up a wide, 26 inch tire in seconds, without any pumping effort.
