You don't need a compressor, you just need to cut off the female shrader on a bike pump, attach a threaded hose barb, and screw a quick connect on to that. What's so hard about that? It takes less than 30 minutes.

Yeah but on your picture you can't really see your schrader valve.

Yea, that's definitely going to get you at least a tazer.

How is that easier than just buying the correct type of schrader to begin with?

1. Get a bike pump, cut a part off of it so the pump is no longer useable for it's original purpose.
2. Get a suitably sized hose barb.
3. Get a sutiable quick connect.

Isn't this easier;
1. Get the correct type of schrader from the local car tire store for $1.
2. Drill a hole and install the valve.
3. Use the standard tire filling chuck that came with the compressor. (Or the un-modified bicycle pump that you were going to ruin.)

I got the same thing at a Lowe's store in Chapel Hill NC. They were over by the air compressors.

You can get concealed fit schraeder valves for use in alloy wheels which also work really well and they put almost all of the valve body INSIDE the chamber with only the threaded portion sticking out.

it is a Schrader valve and it only costs $4.61 for one that goes up to 100psi and you can buy different gauges for it that go up to 300psi
