I'm pretty sure that Machine Mart do a didgy one that connects to an airline, ... but ... the acuracy on most gauges is fairly suspect (analogue or digital)- blow your tyres up close to what you want, then use a proper, old fashioned gauge (with the poppy out stem bit) to read the true pressure (don't forget to calibrate it for air temp & pressure ) - seriously, if, even using a(n inaccurate)service station pump, if you get close to 42F/48R the bike will handle well

I have one that looks just like it. I paid $68 for it at Costco and a air compressor came attached to it!

Here is a nice one, not terribly cheap though:

I bought one on eBay. You can do a search on eBay for "tire inflator" and you will see several styles that are available. The only ones that are exactly like this on eBay right now are in the UK but they show up from time to time from US sellers.

the air inflator i use on my workshop type air compressor is just like the one in the picture of my link, it's not very easy to know exactly which figure the needle is pointing at.
