Throw away your muscle-aching hand pump. Stamp out your foot pump.
This is the only pump you'll ever need and I'm so glad I bought this Beto Track Pump.
I read some of the reviews which showed both positive and negative comments but I went with my gut feeling and bought one.
Today (June 21st) I used the Beto Track Pump for the first time since buying it a few days ago, as I changed my MTB tyres from Off-Road to Road.
Initially, I found it difficult to attach the Adaptor as the instructions showed the positions of the adaptor lock. Could I get the adaptor to stay on? No way.
So I decided to do the opposite of what the instructions stated and yes, it stayed on and locked. So, if you do purchase this Beto Track Pump, disregard what the instructions say and do the opposite - Open is Locked and Closed is Unlocked.
So, with the Beto Track Pump securely fitted to my tyre, I set the PSI needle to 45psi and started pumping. Literally, within a minute or so, my tyre was inflated to 45psi with no effort whatsoever felt on my arms and I moved immediately onto my 2nd tyre and inflated that within the same time. Again, without no effort felt on my arms - unlike the hand-pump, which after a short time, your arms would be tired and probably only inflated 15psi.
This Beto Track Pump is very well made, sturdy and has a couple of clips built-on to keep the hose secured to the pump when not in use. The adaptor does not leak from the other hole when attached properly to your tyre.
If you want a decent pump, look no further than this item. You'll be glad you made the purchase ;-)
