My old and faithful Serfas pump head lever broke (made of plastic) so I replaced it with this one based on reviews. So far, it has lived up to the ratings. Solidly built from pump head to base, it should last a long time. Large barrel pumps up to 95 psi easily and seems like it would go much higher just as easily. Great pump for the price.
The pump has worked well so far. It came without instructions, but one call to my cycling friend resolved the usage aspect. The switch on the end of the tube needs to be rotated in the direction opposite the valve being used, which is different than most connections I have used in the past. I will post again if there is anything further to add,
I have had mine for at least 9 years and still works great !!
used everyday and lives in the trunk of my car!!
I work in a bike shop, race, coach and a triathlete, this is the only one I recommend 100%
A friend convinced me to upgrade my 20 year old Joe Blow pump to something much fancier. The new pump (I already forget its name) had a much heavier chuck, and it was impossible to remove the chuck from my presta valve without releasing between 5-10 lbs of pressure.
I had already given my old Joe Blow to my dad, so I ordered a new one, and am so happy I'm back! It's nothing fancy, but it works really well, and that's all I need from my pump.
One thought, I'm 6'3 and I have an easy time using this pump. My 10 year old son finds it much hard to actually inflate with. If you're shopping for a smaller rider there may be better choices out there.
The pump does it's job fairly well. Two minor issues are that the two headed design (as opposed to one head that fits both styles of valve, most have that design) makes the lever a little more difficult and the sliding pressure marker is worthless as it moves too easily. The pump, once connected functions well. Pumping effort is good.
Very good value, works extremely well, sits on the presta valve very easily. The valve is incredible. Only complaint is no bleed option. The pressure seems to be dead on as well.
The older Joe's air chuck wasn't the best. The new one, at least after one year, is near-perfect. It's easy to use and secure. The gauge has a useful range and size, and the position makes it easy to see. No reason to spend more for a pump. This one really is excellent in every way.
Chuck started leaking after a year of use. Never did like the short hose. Will replace with another brand.
Bought two of these floor pumps, one for my home and one for my grandkids on Cape Cod. Well engineered, well built and efficient to use on either valve stem, plus inflation nozzle and needle for balls and toys. Very pleased.
I purchased this pump because i know that Joe Blow pumps are highly recomended at most bike shops for a great low costing bike pump. I do like the fact that is can do the standard schrader valves, and the presta valves without changing any parts, or using any adapters. This pump also comes with a ball inflator, and a air bed inflator as two extra pieces that come with it. I highly recomend this pump, because of the ease of using it. Money well spent for such a great product.
