I wonder if this could be upgraded to a shock pump?

I like how it connects to the "system" by simply putting it on the chain.
For the lazy people: try this with a motorized bike for an "in-the-field" compressor.

Lol have a motor bike with a QEV and popoff a 1000 round paintball hopper and just drive around a paint ball field.

You could shoot them and run them over at the same time! :D

IDK about "Landfills filling up with CO2 cartridges" which he mentions TWICE! :x

Seems like the tiny co2 cart.s would benefit landfills since they're made of steel and the landfill could be mined for iron at a later date.

Near where I was living, they had to install methane torches at the landfill to burn off excees gas, so they added a generated and produce electricity there now too.

It would be better IMO if he stated it's lighter than the co2 filler and nearly as fast or such...
...I wonder if this could be upgraded to a shock pump?...

Of course, but how much volume would it put out.
Probably better than hand pumping a "shock pump" too since it's have gears.
It will be interesing component if the "air-car" MrC. first made me aware of to use some type regenerative brakeing compressor.

Personally I've had thoughts of "pimdin' dat be ride" for a while by adding a stainless steel m-11 sized .375"-.5 'er on the dash (not concealed, and not a firearm) with the pressure tank and maybe compressor in the trunk!!!! 8)
(Not for myself though).
