High Quality Pump & Co2 set-up. What Are You Using?

New Fatbike owner, I need to be prepared. So what can you recommend? I'm looking for something super reliable as I plan to get out there.

Thanks. I was thinking the Co2 is just to finish off the job once there is some small amount of pressure in the tube. I have been really pleased with the Leyzene pumps and will get their Co2 adapter too. I had a Topeak road morph that was excellent for my touring bike use, but it seems like carrying a small floor pump.

I bring the tire sealant repair aerosol (still using tubes). I get quite a few flats and the sealant helps quite a bit for future punctures. It does make the tire heavier

Blackburn mini pumps have always been great for me. Lifetime warranty as well. When I'm going "out there," I also carry a tubeless repair kit and often a tube just in case. Might consider a small bottle of sealant too.

I carry a Lezyne Micro Floor Drive XL. 100 strokes to fill a 5 x 26" tire. I used a couple of others that wore me out before setting on the Lezyne. I'm set up tubeless with Caffelatex sealant and strips - that reduces weight a lot compared to a tube and then trying to seal with an aerosol set up.

Topeak Race Rocket MT is about half the amount of strokes to fill that size tire.

I was just thinking, a co2 pump would be so freaking fast for fb tires... Gotta snag one.
