Tube Pressures & Pumps

If a tube requires to be pumped up to 3.25 bar what equipment would you use to do this?

A pump and pressure gauge or would this be Bravo territory?

You sure that it's not 3.25 PSI? A Bravo won't do 3.25 bar. That's 47psi.

That's more than my tyres, think he means psi, I use a Bravo btp 12 and it's excellent, my Avon manual says 3.25 psi and I take it to about 2.5.

LOL Christmas is about receiving not giving otherwise the angry side comes out. Sarah is still feeling bad about dinging the skeg when we launched for the jolly to the folly. I am expecting a bumper Christmas!

Yes I sent it to her on an email and hyperlinked everything so where to get it from talk about subtle but as you know that's not one of my strong points!

following some "slight" warranty repairs to the tubes on our rib when it was new, the advice we were given was to always keep the tubes hard, however the tubes do have pressure relief valves so I suppose that does make a difference
