Air compressor
#1
Can anybody recommend a small air compressor for home use which will blow up tyres quick enough to pop the beads onto the rim when trying to get them tubeless. This is for a fat tyre.... the track pump will almost do it but the manual side of the process fails and collapses in a heap before the job is done Sad

That sounds familiar, i almost threw up once lol. You could try the 2ltr bottle and a couple of valves trick which seems to work for most people.

I would think unlikely to work on a 4.25 inch tyre which takes nearly 25psi to pop the beads tbh Sad

Mate I have a 150L compressor in the workshop, or the Esso in the village has a free airline Wink

Yeah I've been going to the free air in the village but it's a bit of a pain in the arse keep going down there when I want to blow the tyre up....currently the tubeless conversion is 85% successful but I'm getting closer to complete success with every minor modification

I have a 2l coke bottle version if you want to try it.
I've had it at 60psi before now without issue....... & it's great exercise for your bum; you'll never clench so hard as when there's a plastic bottle at your feet with 60psi in it :o

I've now got them so I can easily pump them up with a track pump so I'm not convinced I'll go down the compressor route at the moment
