Can anyone recommend a good, reasonably priced CO2 pump. I am ideally looking for one you can use twice if needed per ride with one cylinder. It's for road tires so I beleive this is possible. Thanks all

It's not clear if you're looking for an all-in-one (pump + inflator), or just the inflator. I'm suspicious of reliability of the all-in-ones so I carry a mini-pump to get things started, and as a bailout if I run out of cartridges, plus the Superflate inflator. They're on sale at Performance now, they take either threaded or unthreaded, and you can get the unthreaded cartridges cheap from Performance or from WalMart etc. It's a trigger release system that let's you inject as much or as little CO2 as you need.

Only limitation I've found is that you can't use the CO2 holder for larger sized cartridges.
