Having a pile of defective standard bike pumps in our garage, including several fancy ones that promised much but failed after a month or so, and a cheap stirrup pump that always leaked, had a defective gauge, and finally blew through its tube after a couple of years, I was hoping that the Joe Blow "track pump" would be different. It is! Very good build quality from the aluminium footplate to the ergonomic handle, and from the robust metal cylinder to the rock solid and accurate pressure gauge. It makes maintaining the pressure on the motorbike, four bicycles and one estate car almost a pleasure. Get it if you can!
