comment What is the easiest and quickest way to pump up a tyre?
I just leave my Cycleaire attached to the bike in its bag (which also holds some tire irons and a patch kit), it's been handy a few times when I'm out and about. I find it much better than any other portable pump I've used. I tend to use a track pump for regular use (which stays in the house)

comment Which puncture-resistant tires?
I've been using Specialized Armadillos for a couple of years now, after a run of getting a couple of punctures a month. My commute to work passes several construction sites by the river, and there's often small shards of metal on the road. So it may depend on what causes your flats, I plan on getting Armadillos again when I need to replace these ones. They're cheaper than Marathon Plus, and have been good enough for me so far.

You could try getting puncture resistant tyres, e.g. bicycles.stackexchange.com/questions/27

I've never seen any wrist-only ones. Can somebody provide a link to one of them?

comment What are the advantages and disadvantages of turbo trainers and rollers?
@Mark Ingram I'm not sure yet :) Only used them for about an hour in total so far, but I'm a lot less wobbly now than I was on my first try. I'd be surprised if it takes much longer to be fine on them though.

Also, I have a set of rollers that does have resistance settings - only 3, but it does make a difference. turbotrainerreviews.com/bike-trainers/elite/…

I think you made a typo in your first paragraph 'rollers' instead of 'rollers' (I don't have the rep to fix it myself)
