I have an Innovations CO2 inflator. Directions say to only use Innovation brand CO2 cartridges of course. You can get paintball gun CO2 cartridges for less that the bike cartridges. Any reason you can't use any CO2 cartridge that fits or stick with CO2 cartridges from the LBS?

Does your inflator accept unthreaded cartridges? Those are available in discount stores but will take a road tire to only 90 - 100 psi. The Innovations 16gr threaded cartridges will go to 120 - 130 psi.

Some inflaters require the use of threaded cartridges, if yours is compatible with both threaded and non-threaded, you can use airgun (non-threaded) cartridges.
yup...buy em cheap at the local sporting goods store or some place like Walmart.
