A new company has kindly offered to help me with some product for next year...
Tyreinflators.co.uk run by Jonathon Money are specialists in Co2 inflators..
The company stock a massive range of inflators and refill cartridges at some great prices.. i have been sent one of the smallest out there, perfect for the jersey pocket while racing
This thing is so small!!!!
I have taped the 2 cartidges together and just lightly wound the adaptor onto the top of one of the cartridges with a little bit of tape to secure it on so in the event of a puncture its just a quick couple of turns to break seal on cartridge and i'm ready to go...
Racing at Coed Y Brenin this year and having 3 punctures highlighted the need to be able to get a puncture sorted and get back riding asap...even in the marathon events we may look strung out but the gaps are never that big and when changing a flat mid race i think i lose at least 10 places... yes you can chase back on but thats extra energy used.
I think this little piece of kit will be a godsend so big thanks again to Jonathon...did i mention how many Co2 cartridges i am likely to get through:)
