  • Great and durable emergency pump to take along

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    - Sturdy plastic material (for the pump)

    - Does not escape air while pumping

    - Practical

    - Fits very firmly screwed to the water bottle suppor

    - Proven able to pump at least up to 55psi with about 6 pumps per psi on a 26"x2.125 tire (6 pumps per psi when about 50psi)

    - Head turns a little to aid avoiding to cut the valve

    - Does not let air escape

    Cons:

    - The plastic screws that come with the product are unusable; just get longer metal screws if you need, never rely to the plastic ones

    - The pump support, in plastic -WILL- break if you let your bike down and it hits the ground by the support

    - The pin in the pump sometimes move a little left or right, so keep an eye to maintain its position before you fill a tire.

    OtherThoughts:

    Bottomline:

    They are perfect for me. I don't think on buying new ones since I bought it. All tire repairs now count with the air from this pump; with the aid of a tire pressure gauge I can take te tire to 40-50psi.

    Of course you can get such pressures much easier if you pump about 20psi and get to a gas station to fill with that car compressor to your desired pressure.
