I am pretty picky about tire air pressure on my bikes and also rear-shock pressure. That said, what Tire Pressure gauge do you use for your bikes for those purposes? brand etc. I had an older USA made accu-gauge that has suddenly disappeared, that I need to replace and am looking for suggestions. I also am curious about your favorite air-chucks?
Thanks!

I tend to use a circular pressure gauge made by a company named "slime".
I have no idea as to its accuracy but I think its consistent anyway. Have you ever gone to an auto parts store and right there close to the register is a box of miscellaneous things they sell that you might need? I found this one there.
It has the virtue of being small and easy to read, use, and store.

I had the same thing happen......up and vanished!

I currently use a basic Slime pressure gauge. I have yet to look but I would like to pick another USA made accu-gauge up at some point.

My Slime gauge also has a pressure relief button on the stem. Comes in handy and I am sure to clear it between every gauge I make because it seems to hold some pressure.

Yep. Apparently a good quality USA made tire gauge is a hot commodity :wink2: That gauge was accrate also. I am hoping to find another good gauge.

You must use a "zero loss" pump/gauge on the shocks such as the following:

Bicycle shops sometimes carry them cheaper.

I have always used Accu-gauge, currently have their digital angle gauge. Reads 1/2 pound increments.
