I carry one of these on all three of my bikes. I never really thought about flats much, I did have one on my Mtn Bike last summer. I was two miles out so I just walked the bike back. Otherwise I confess to being very lucky, almost 7K street miles since my last flat!! But then I got to thinking that I should be better prepared so I bought one of these inflators for each machine and I now carry a spare tube, levers and this gizmo in a seat bag on each machine. Well last Saturday I was flying down a hill on my TREK Madone, ran over something and ended up with a pinch flat. This time I was about 10 miles out. It was getting dark and I was pretty well used up so walking back wasn't an option. So out comes the tire repair gear, I pulled the old tube out and confirmed it wasn't a puncture, installed the new tube and remembered I had just stuck the inflator into the seat bag without the instructions. The good news is that this thing is simple to use and one cartridge inflated the tire to over 110 psi, I was on my way in minutes! Don't leave home without one, a spare tube and an extra CO2 bottle!!
