Airshot - Review
I made a guide on here a while ago on how to make one from a £12 fire extinguisher. In hindsight I may have moved up to a £15 one with a bigger volume but this still works a treat on most tyre / rim combos. http://www.pinkbike.com/u/bighitter/blog/how-to-make-a-not-so-ghetto-tubeless-inflator-for-less-than-15.html

How to make a not so ghetto tubeless inflator for less than £15
When I started this project my initial plan was to make a plug with a ball valve sticking out of the side and a presta valve sticking out of the top. I think CO2 cylinders will use the same thread which is an M30 x 1.5. Luckily I work in a machine shop so managed to get one of the guys to knock one up for me (drawing of the plug below). When I get round to it (hopefully at the weekend) I'll drill & tap the thing and stick a [L=http://www.bearingshopuk.co.uk/6350-18-6-gas-mini-ball-valves-brass/#product_tabs_tech_dimensions]ball valve[/L] in there. I've got some 6mm OD copper pipe for the ball valve which I can then glue some hosing on to. I've found some fuel line which I am hoping will be much better than the clear hosing I've used in the guide above which is a bit on the big side. Also I have found a larger extinguisher for stubborn tyres but I also plan on making this one in to a pressure bleeder for my car brakes. Still looking for other uses though!

Schwalbe Procore Tire System - Review
Knowing whether the system works with different rim tape is a bonus. We've all been there, fettling away the evening before a ride and noticed a spoke could do with replacing. Rim tape off, spoke replaced. Job done. Only problem is you've only got some regular tubeless tape on the shed. It's good to know that it works, albeit reliability is better with the high pressure tape
