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!
