presta valve chuck for air compressor?(6 posts)

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 wouldn't worry about using the air compressor.Spoke Wrench

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.
gotta like Spoke Wrench's "A" solution...Akirasho

... though the price sucks...

FYI... here is the link I was thinking about.

Might be useful for future reference.
