    Pumping tires

    Hi. I'm a C6 quad with a manual wheelchair. I have little hand function. My question is how do you quads pump your tires? I have an automatic pump but getting the nozzle on and off without losing significant air is difficult.

      I have often driven by the bike shop, called inside, and the owner comes out and pumps them up for free. Nice guy. Fortunately I have more and function than you, badjefft, but with our air compressor I struggled quite a bit before learning to get the nozzle on and off cleanly.

        I do this whenever I’m traveling. If I’m gone long enough to need to air up my tires I stop by a bike shop. They’ve universally been really cool about airing the tires up for me and have never even charged me for it.

            I have more function I’d imagine but I got a co2 thing for emergency to fill tires works easy and the small co2 tank fills one tire easy and putting on you don’t loose air . Sorry don’t know the name but a search will bring them up

              There are lots of CO2 bike inflators out there. The CO2 doesn't last as long as air so if you use it to get by, purge the tire and put air back in when you get a chance. If you're looking for something more permanent then get an air compressor with tire inflator adapter. I just roll into the garage and use the compressor.

              Edit: If you go the CO2 inflator route, make sure you get the right cylinders. Some accept only threaded, some accept threaded and non threaded. Also the right size. Some are 16 grams and some are 20 grams.
