Strip all the casing and the gauge of it and takes up very little room in your tool bagsmilesmile

Lining the tube will help with snakebite punctures. You can also use goop or slime too to try help prevent. And back the valve nut off against the cap.

As for reinflating you can either buy a small compressor like Steve has said or pack those inflator canisters you can buy in your kit.

I carry a Slime compressor (much cheaper 12V inflators do the job just as well) in my headlight bag. I usually fit a new tube and leave the compressor running until the tyre had seated and then adjust the pressure.

The compressor has been used on my bro's car as he has a slight leak on one wheel - he thinks coz of the ally rims. Put it up to 40lbs no bother.

I used to always carry a small bicycle pump, its a fair bit of work to pump up the tyre but it gets there and its light and easy to carry,
Now i just take a C02 cannister and adapter , I picked it up cheap about ten bucks with half a dozen cannisters. Smaller again than the pump and much easier. one bottle does a tyre no worries.
Usually I carry a spare 21" tube OR some patches and glue. Tubes are heavier and take up more room than the small tyre repair kit. Its all a comprimise really.
And a small pencil type tyre guage.

I have the bike pump but the co2 bottles sound like something to look into 

I've done the slime extra bead lock on the back and silicone washers on the valve stems  to keep the muck out of the rim .

Three flats in 35 years fngers crossed no more

 slime is the last thing you want to use...

ever tried patching a tube filled with the crap

if it doesn't seal on its own...

if on the side of the road every little stone/bit of grass sticks to the tube..

I was out last week and we copped two flats in a group of six riders over three days. Pyrenees Ranges in Victoria, its got a lot of sharp rocks particularly on the top of the ridges.

Everyone runs heavy duty tubes, in fact you have to shout a round of drinks if you are caught with light duty tubes!!!

CO2 cannister pumped up the first one, (same as pictured above by TTR STeve),the second flat mine, but only about 4 km from the motel so I nursed it back slowly and ended up using a spare tube and compressor i carry in the car. Easier again.

Aldi have a special offer on this week, I bought a CO2 inflator complete with one 16 gr CO2 cylinder for £3.99 and four additional cylinders for another £3.99.

Both were advertised in the sales leaflet at £4.99, but were marked up at £3.99 in store.

The inflator includes an adaptor for both Presta and Schrader Valves.

That's the one I run, small cheap and effective, and works well.
Recommended. Good find.
