|presta valve chuck for air compressor?||DougSloan|

|Anyone aware of a presta valve chuck for an air compressor? One with a built in pressure guage and a bleed valve would be even better. Since my compressor tops out at 120 psi, this should be fine, right?

|I've seen such on the web made by Zefal (sans guage and bleed)... you might check a QBP catalog or web search under Zefal (sorry, not on regular 'pooter so I can't post the link).
...pssssssst... I won't mention the compressor thingy to the rest of the forum...

|I'm trying to find it.
I might try using a CO2 chuck for threaded cartidges, then adapt that with pipe fittings to an air compressor hose quick fitting. I'll post how it goes.
I know air compressor use is generally discouraged, but I figure it can't be any worse than using CO2's.

|I've got a Silca presta head that I grafted onto an air compressor quick release fitting that has a pressure gauge. It's cool and all, but the only time I can get 115psi our of it is immediately after my air compressor has recharged its tank. I still have to top up my tires with a hand pump.
The "A" answer has to be a "Problem Solvers Air-Bob. It has an integrated presta/schrader head, pressure gauge and bleeder valve. QBP has them for $75.00 wholesale. I think that you should buy two and ship me the second one.

|... though the price sucks...
FYI... here is the link I was thinking about.
Might be useful for future reference.
