+1 - Great piece of kit  :152:

Did you buy it from a UK stockist or get it shipped  ?

Be wary of an old man in a world where men die young

Not had to use it yet, what I would say is it doesn't fit under the seat :151:

Hi doc,
I got my one from Metal Mule Ltd., based in Dorset, UK. FYI, I got the air pump together with the separate tyre gauge fitted with a 90° chuck which makes connection to the tyre valve a doddle. Like weljo, I have also got the Stop & Go Tyre Plugger puncture repair kit. Both fit under the seat of the V1K and, for what it's worth, I have used both in anger, with an excellent result, when I got a rear tyre puncture in France. Yes, it is an expensive piece of kit but, in my experience, well worth the money to get you reliably out of that sticky situation when you most need it. Furthermore, post repairing a puncture, there is no need to ride carefully to a petrol station to top up the tyre pressure as the air pump will comfortably inflate the tyre to the correct working pressure, in my case, 42psi. I hope that helps.
