    Inside every biker there's a hiker. Nothing wrong with hiking it.

    Catastrophic failure of DIY Coke Bottle Air Compressor. Feeling lucky I still have eyesight intact. Sitting in quiet room now, waiting for ears to stop ringing.
    If you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it tubeless, I will. I got spare time.

    I love me some homemade shit. But what is with the bandage wrap? Was that supposed to be duct tape or packaging tape or some such thing? Must have made a seriously sweet sound! What psi?

    20" tube and you can set the bead with a trail pump. I landed a jump off camber and my tire came off. I wiped the pines/mud and I was able to pump it.

    Yup. You know, contain the blast!

    Gonna get the Schwalbe Tire Booster I think. No more high pressure DIY.

    Who the fuck told you that? I'm going to find them and kick them in the balls on your behalf. And on behalf of humanity.

    Wow, no kidding, that's amazing! I guess it's lucky they told you to contain the shrapnel with that stretchy stuff.

    Sweet lesson in composites to be had there, though. Might have to save that pic.

    Just google tubeless inflator or Coke Bottle Air Compressor. Iím not the first dumbass to try this. Perhaps just the first one to admit it to his internet friends.

    Iím so pleased to be able to deliver the entertainments with this. Maybe should have started a new thread for it! FKNA!!!

    Back story, just moved cross country and got rid of a lot of heavy bulky shit, including my old Air Compressor. Stumbled across this ghetto shit when looking at the Air Shot and assorted charger/booster floor pumps. Figured it was worth a try. Lesson learned.

    You're probably right. There's no way someone down there hasn't thought of it.

    Thanks for the links. It seems like there is a rather small margin of error.

    You moved out of N.C? Whereíd ya end up?

    I️ picked up a cheap Giant floor pump that has high and low volume. The high volume works so well I️ barely use my compressor anymore.

    Telluride and the San Juans blow my mind too. Just ridiculous.

    Congrats dude. FtC is one of the last best spots on the Front Range. Kinda far from resort skiing, but a super long riding season on great trails.

    Hit me up when you want to go for a ride... I'm in Niwot, and ride up in Loveland and Ft. Fun pretty regularly. Love me some Bobcat Ridge and Horsetooth SP.
