    I can only assume the mini tire pumps out there would be a real grind to use for pumping up a 4" tire. Is there a good tire pump I should look for?

    For use while out riding the lezyne micro floor drive xl is the best option.

    Lezyne makes two compact pump types, high pressure (HP) and high volume (HV). HP is for road bikes with skinny tires. Use HV for a packable fat tire pump. In the garage, I use a compressor. On the bike I carry a Lezyne Alloy Drive HV pump. There's an article on BikeRumor about it.

    The lezyne floor drive xl is basically their fat tire version of the hv you're referencing @Rincon -it came out late last year!

    If looking for an at home solution, ant floor pump will suffice.

    Yes, the Micro Floor Drive XL is the fat tire pump because it only goes to 35 pounds. The Alloy, and all of the other HV hand pumps, go to 90 lbs. I'm not sure why anyone would buy the XL as the Micro Floor Drive HV is the same length and style but pumps to 90. I find Lezyne's vast array of pumps confusing, overlapping, and poorly differentiated—but all are quality products. They are a pleasure to own and use.

    The Topeak Turbo Morph Bike Pump is a goo option also. Not too pricey, does the job.

  10. Portland Design Works Magic Flute. It has a CO2 inflater built in so you can hit the flat with the CO2 and then top off with the pump.
