I am looking to buy a new air pump, and am considering buying either a
double shot or an electric air pump, like the ones that Performance and
Sears and the auto shops sell.  Does anyone have either a double shot or an
electric, and what do you think of them?  What do the bike shops use?  Will
an electric hold up pumping to 110 p.s.i. on a regular basis?  Any advice on
brands? Do you think I'll get any good responses by posting this to
alt. airheads?  Thanks in advance.

I have the Performance electric air pump (also known as a compressor  :) ),
and it works great.  It is particularly useful for disc wheels and other
problem wheels, since you can concentrate on keeping the hose attached
 without having to worry about pumping.  The guage is also very accurate,
and will pump to 220 psi (I would strongly caution against pumping your
wheels up to this, however!).  It is also very portable, and I've even
packed it into my luggage for long flights to races.
