Air compressor

Tsk tsk Mr Hugger!
There is a valve perfectly suited to the task in every one on your current wheels, surely.

If you don't have an old tube to cut a presta valve out of, I'm sure I can find you one Big Grin

[it's not my fault] DO NOT overlook reinforcing the bottle...... They are only rated to about 120psi when in perfect condition.
Once it been used several times & been kicked around the garage for a while it won't be in perfect condition.
If the bottle goes at 60psi it is, at best, really uncomfortable, at worst bloody dangerous.
Some duct tape on the bottle will both strengthen it & prevent catastrophic failure.[/it's not my fault]

Id be tempted to put a loop of tape around the bottle and a table leg or similar solid object. It'll be worth it to see a flying table if nothing else.
Keep it foolish...

Yeah i know you use an inner tube valve to pump air into the bottle, but don't you need a one way valve from bottle to tyre?

Air will only go in the direction towards the lower pressure. Once the bottle is pressured no way will it travel from the tyre back to the bottle

Yeah i know, but with a Presta valve in the cap, what do you use to connect it to the tyre? Or srader valve in bottle cap and a shrader-presta converter, if they exist?
