As stated in the title, I need to attach a bike pump to a titan air tank. I searched, but didn't find any detailed write ups or even internal pictures of the various mods that have been made involving bike pumps. From what I've seen, I will probably need to get a bike tire valve and attach it to the titan tank, unless there is a way to attach 1/4 size tubing directly to the bike pump. If anyone can help me with this dilema it would be much apreciated. I appologize if I missed something in my searching and/or am being a total dumbass.

Adding a fitting to the tank was covered in this thread. Just drill, tap, and epoxy in the fitting. I would recommend using JB weld to install an instant tube fitting.

If searching doesn't work, use the directories for each section.

To adapt 1/4 semi-rigid tubing to a bike pump the easiest solution is to use a tube to stem coupler

Or you can put a tire stem valve on the titan tank and plug the pump into it directly.

So that piece fits onto the pump if I'm not mistaken. Is that going to work for all bike pumps?

Yes, that stem size is the same as the valve stem spec. If only slightly tighter.
I've used one for filling up my homemade backpack tank.

It's also advisable to put a check valve inbetween the pump and the Titan tank just in case the bike pump connection is leaky.
