Bike tire/air compressor question???(2 posts)

Bike tire/air compressor question???robocomp
Jul 18, 2002 6:06 AM
Just got a new craftsman air compressor 150psi max. Can anyone recommend
attachment chucks (brands, links, etc.) that handle road bike tire pressures of up to 120? I also
need a chuck that is compatible with various bike nozzles vs. car tire nozzles. It appears
that the attachment chuck with my kit only goes to 90 psi max.

I have a cheapo cigarette lighter powered air compressor that says 120 PSI on the front. Same experience, the chuck can't handle anything much past 80.

I wrap my hand around the whole chuck and valve and it pumps me up to 115 in fairly short order.
