Bike Pump Keychain
Wrote Katie Hagar on Better Living Through Design,
"This is a bike pump. On a keychain. How can that be? This little keychain attachment is the missing link between you and air compressors found throughout your city. Simply remove it from your key chain, connect it to one end of an air compressor at an auto shop (or fire station), and then connect the other end to your bike tire. Use the compressor's gauge to fill to the correct PSI."
"Of course, this is really limited to cities where auto shops and fire stations are everywhere, but, hey, if you live in one of those cities, you're in luck."
$12 (bike, keys, and keychain not included).

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Bike Pump Keychain:
One not-so-small problem with this: most compressors (at least that I've seen) are way too powerful to use on a bike tire; even if you don't explode the inner tube (which I did a couple of times as a kid), the valve gets damaged by air pressures that are way in excess of what a bike pump produces. Get a portable bike pump or, if you're lazy, a couple of CO2 cartridges and an adapter. If you need to refill your tube more often than a couple of times, you need a new tube or tire.
