Default RE: Air Pump for Pnuematic Retracts

The trouble with the high quality bicycle pump is they when new are going to cost that or more. Also you will have to deal with some sort of adapter to get the schrader valve fitting down to the little airline hose.

The down side of automotive electric pumps is agine the adapter and bulk/weight to be lugged around. possibly agine a similar price unless you already have one.

The price you quoted is not bad and about five or six bucks less than the Springair pump.

These pumps are very small take up very little space in a flight box and easily pump up rapidly. Using some of these other alternatives will only take away some of the enjoyment of running a set of quality retracts.
