Portland Design Works BARkeep™ CO2 Inflator makes tire inflation as satisfying as pouring a beer. It threads onto both Presta and Schrader valves, and the integrated pressure gauge works on its own or with threaded 16 g CO2 cartridges when inflating to make sure pressure numbers are exactly right. Tap Handle™ flow control allows for precise inflation, and the plastic cover keeps hands insulated from cold cartridges.
94 g claimed weight. CO2 cartridge not included.

This is a well thought out piece of bicycle engineering; the problem is, it doesnï¿½t work! I bought this this for emergency purposes, Iï¿½m very glad that I tried it out in my garage before I had an emergency. Darn thing went flying apart and I thought it might be because I was making a mistake, I reviewed the directions did all the right stuff and it still didnï¿½t work, right! Finally, I thought I could use it my garage, as a back up, and finally threw it away, because the danger from using this device was not worth any convenience it might have afforded. Strangely enough, the micro version with the leather sheath, from Portland Design Works, works very well. In fact, Iï¿½m buying another one for a gift. Just stay away from the barkeep and youï¿½ll be happy Lol.
I really like this product I will eventually get 2 more so I can have one on each bike and not have to swap it back and fourth
I commute with my bikes 2 road bikes & a fat-tire bike
I love the gauge feature so you can just make sure to fill the tire to the correct pressure
I brought the Portland Design inflator since the CO2 inflator I have don't have much insulation when gas is being
released, freezing my fingers as I'm trying to hold it steady. The only con is I can't fit the CO2 cartridge in the plastic housing without puncturing the seal. For those of you who have a saddle bag, this is no issue. For me, I have to stash it in my jersey pocket full of other stuff. an issue during the cooler month when I need to pack a light jacketarm warmerstoe coversextra gloves along with 2 cartridge, 2 tubes, 2 tire levers, Clif Bars during the 50 miles rides.
Read previous reviews on this inflator and decided to give it a try.
Encountered a flat on the front tire on my last ride and the inflator was used.
This Portland Design Works proved it's worth!
