Air pump in a bind?

Sorry to hijack this thread. I have a pump on order with the Rib Shop. The freight time to Florida could be a bit is there a place to buy the fixture to pump up my tubes in the interim?

I just bought a Bravo 12 BST from (resellers; the pumps were sold by a kayaking/rafting outfit somewhere.)

I'm actually fairly impressed with it: reasonably fast (it's a 2-stage pump; works on a turbine until the pressure overwhelm that, then switches to a piston for the final pressurization), seemingly accurate, auto-shutoff (adjustable), and has a 2 year warranty (though I think warranty work is carried out in Italy.)

They have several models; some have their own battery; I got the one without. They also have a standard model (to something like 4 psi) and a HP model (to 11 psi - more than I needed.)

Assuming they have it in stock, shouldn't take too long to get to Florida.


ps: a small air compressor or a standard scuba cylinder/regulator would both work as well; you just have to plumb it to fit your valves, and watch the pressure as you fill.
