Deflators...

Me being me, I want to buy "Made in USA".  Like Chinese?  Take a drive through a once prosperous American city such as Detroit and you'll see the abandoned factories, abandoned (if not burnt down) neighborhoods, and those who remain.  One of the reasons for such decay is the lack of jobs.  While we're largely unable to manage the political reasons of jobs going overseas, I feel that supporting the manufacturers who keep jobs here is VERY important.

So, I did a startpage search and found some deflators made in USA.  One is the Oasis Trailhead deflator, and the other is the Tire Buddy (now Tire Buddy III).

Both are 'automatic'... set it, screw it onto the valve stem, forget about it.  I intend on removing them and replacing valve caps so any "you can run traiils with these on" are a moot point.  I'd rather not risk damage or loss to them.

I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with any of these, and outside of Amazon and JC Whitney, can't find a place to purchase them.  I checked Motion Offroad and these products aren't listed... hmmm... I'd like to support a site sponsor...

Thanks,

Matt

Matt we carry the Oasis and I'd say they are a great product with some great guys running the company; I've spent hours on the phone with them in the past.

Give me a call at the office and I'll get you taken care of - 260.224.6098.

Thanks,
Adam
