Is there a head that I could put on a small air compressor that would fit directly onto a Presta valve.
Yup, I have a two-piece Silca head attached to a piece of hose and an NPT fitting. The pump head came from AEBike, I think - see Silca pump head, they also sell it with a hose for $1 more, and chances are you can find an NPT fitting for the other end.GDR said:
In the past I've just used a standard Presta valve adapter, as you probably use now. But I've just found it easier to use a floor pump, that way I don't have to remove the adapter each time I want to check the pressure during filling. I don't think that a Presta compressor fitting would really ease things much. The exception is when seating a tubeless converted tire.GDR said:
Like this? Any bike shop can order this for you through QBP. Item #pu9997. Although it is too expensive for my tastes ($75), you can set the psi you require and then let the compressor do the rest until it hits your psi adjustment. One of my buddies has this and it is pretty handy.GDR said:
