yea that will work, it will be tough to pump ounce it starts filling, a foot operated pump is easier to use, dhaaaaaa-legs are stronger and last longer

100psi is asking a lot from most hand/foot pumps they aren't really designed to deliver that much pressure. Some street bike tires can hold 100psi but that's pretty rare, most tires only hold 20-30psi even car tires.
