You can get nitrous cartridges in bulk very easily - google cream whippers and see what pops up. I've got a feeling you can get CO2 from the same places, but that's nowhere near as fun as huffing an innertube full of nitrous halfway through a ride.

Or cook shops would do you, too.

The Lifeline packs on Wiggle are good value. Unfortunately they are currently out of stock - again!

I've often wondered if anyone has ever got those cartridges mixed up.

Or has anyone ever used a bike C02 adapter to get huffing some laughing gas?

Bought from http://www.co2cartridges.co.uk/ last year: 50x 12g threaded for ~£20, split with a mate. Bought in bulk for Paris-Roubaix Sportive, will last me for years of occasional use on cold, dark commutes.
