It’s good habit to check the air in yor tires before every single bike ride. You will be surprised at how quickly high pressure road bike tires can lose pressure while still feeling rock solid. In general most serious cyclers have a floor pump for home, a CO2 inflator in their seat bag, and a backup frame pump for emergencies. While you hope you never need the frame pump it pays to have a decent model that is rated to deliver enough air to inflate your tires to the maximum pressure.
