What kind of pump to use to put air in your OneWheel?
atl1wheelin last edited by
So I ride alot of off road (lower psi due to rocks, roots, etc) and on road (higher psi) and find myself adding and removing air pressure from my OneWheel often. Problem is my bike pump does not fit as its a tight gap between air valve and OneWheel frame. Only place I can fill up my tire is at the local gas station where they have the standard tire pumps but it is miles away from where I ride. Does anyone have a specific pump to add air that is small enough to be mobile and throw in a backpack?

Anybody have a small, compact, accurate and inexpensive air gauge to recommend?
@wheelking I use a small digital gauge that can be found at any auto parts store.. Can't recommend a pump because I have a large compressor..

@njcustom Much thanks and will order today. Here's the air pump I've been using for my OW and basketball:

There is a topic about this subject where several pumps are suggested.

@njcustom does this one actually fit in that tight space? I want to get it

This is the pump I use. It's not small/portable but it has a built in and accurate psi gauge and the clip fits easily in the wheel well.
@braswell its not what i use but its similar so it should..

I was actually looking to give these a try.. They should work well for our situation.

I finally got to try this tonight.. Works really well to check and fill air in the OW tire.. It bleeds a little air so I just overfilled a little.. Link is above for the adapter

I bought a $12 standard bicycle pump. Works perfect.

@erikbsteele Link? Finding a pump with a connector that fits into that tiny gap on the OW is pretty tough.

I use the Microflate Nano CO2 inflator:
It fits easily and is small enough to carry in a bag or even a pocket.

I just received my OneWheel+ (yay!) and my screw-on pump no longer screws on enough to engage the valve-stem. This used to work, and the pump screws on to other, similar, valve stems (e.g. bicycle, motorcycle).
Has anyone else experienced this problem?
I use this pump for my tire:

I use this to inflate the tire:
And added this adaptor to make connecting to the tire stem a breeze:
Works like a champ. Can fill the tire and be done in under a minute, and no wrestling with the tire stem.

@kbern You can just screw on a 90 degree valve extender when filling up. They are only a few bucks and work with any pump. Never had any issues with PSI readings.

I know this is a pretty old thread, but I figured maybe a newcomer like me might benefit from this info.
I just bought a simple hand pump for sports balls from Target:
This works perfectly. It threads onto the valve securely, and only takes a few pumps to go up several PSI. I used a Slime digital gauge to check the pressure. Again, you can get this from Target:
