Repeatidly flick the side of the air pressure tank. A rare phenomen discovered by some college kids or something. Heard that Campbell Hausfeld actually is discussing in installing 'taper' mechanism to there air compressors. It only makes like a 10 PSI difference though, and after a few minutes or so the pressure resumes. Flicking is suffeint, larger instruments such as hammers have proved thereselfs just as effective.

By the way would you mind repeating the words in ALL CAPS of the forum you posted in?

if you get a really nice one (like the one they use for road bikes)
they can easily go up to 150ish

<a href="http://www.bikepartsusa.com/product_info.asp?f_c=Pump&cp=3&p=01%2D80847">Bike Pump</a>

The more expensive ones generaly just put more air in per stroke and go up a lil higher
heres a 160 psi model

wow that expensive one looks sweet, it pumps a tire up to 100 PSI in 10 strokes. But if i had to spend $100 on air pressure id simply buy a small oil free air compressor

yea exactly and remember the volume in tire is nothing compaired to the volume of your tank...

I have a co2 powered one i use for flats in the woods and that think kicks serious butt... Im not sure it has the volume or psi for a tank tho, mountainbiketires normaly dont break 70psi.
