Motorcycle and bicycle shops will have adapters to use the cartridges. I recommend the Microflate (www.innovationsaz.com
), but it will only take the threaded type of cylinders. And, don't forget a patch kit too (www.progressivesuspension.com
-I like the TRCL-2)! No good to be able to inflate you tire if you can't fix the hole!! And, remember that big utiltiy tires may take more than 3 cylinders. And, I run fix-a-flat in my tires all the time, which will fix the little holes without you even knowing it.
One reason I carry a 20oz CO2 cylinder (should easily fill 10+ flat ATV tires) is so I can help other people who might be in trouble out on the trail!! THE NEW CROP OF (CANDY A$$) SUV'S HAVE BROUGHT A WHOLE BUNCH OF INEXPERIENCED PEOPLE OUT OFF-ROADING. Just because a vehicle has 4wd, doesn't mean it is off-road worthy!! AND THEY RUN AROUND ON THOSE 4-PLY STOCK TIRES--THE HEIGHT OF FOOLISHNESS!! One kid was jumping what obviously was his parents Ford Explorer out in the dunes. Later we found him with a broken rear axle. (Somebody from San Diego told me that people will RENT SUV's and take them out to the desert, just to rip around in).
I find people out in the desert with no water, no shovel, no high-lift jack, no way to plug or inflate a tire (www.powertank.com
), and no clue that you can air your tires down for way better traction. And why bring tools when you don't even know how to use them? Don't get me wrong, this is great for off-roading. This means way more pro off-road voters. These folks just need to get educated about survival.
