5.0 out of 5 stars Great, but some instructions would've been nice...
This is a great pump but it took me a while to figure it out. It came with absolutely no instructions and I just thought, well, a pump's a pump, how hard can it be?

I couldn't get the end to fit on the valve until I realised you had to fit it with the lever in the downward position and lift it up to secure it. I was trying to do it the other way around as the...

2.0 out of 5 stars Good pump but the presta valve adaptior is not ideal
I like this pump, it is powerful and quickly pumps the tires to full pressure, with a good clear dial. However it does not compare to my previous pump, which could be changed from a Schoeder to a Presta vave attachement with ease and the pump fitted dirrectly to the valve. This pump has a separate attachment, stored on the pump for a presta valve. This has to be placed on...

This review is from: Beto Track Pump Steel Barrel With Gauge (Sports)
This is a great pump but it took me a while to figure it out. It came with absolutely no instructions and I just thought, well, a pump's a pump, how hard can it be?

I couldn't get the end to fit on the valve until I realised you had to fit it with the lever in the downward position and lift it up to secure it. I was trying to do it the other way around as the last pump I'd had worked that way. Very simple and probably obvious to all but the few like me!

Anyway, it works very well, has a little attachment tucked away in the lever so it can be used for different valve types and it makes it really easy to get the appropriate tyre pressures on your bicycle (which, incidentally, should be stated on the tyre rim). All in all a great value piece of kit that makes pumping tyres a dream compared to the nightmare of a hand pump. It seems robust enough to last but only time will tell.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Product, 15 Feb 2011
This review is from: Beto Track Pump Steel Barrel With Gauge (Sports)
I usually pumped up my tyres with an electric pump plugged into the car cigarette lighter holder.Had to park the bikes next to the car to use the pump which at times was inconvenient.Since getting the Beto track pump it has made the job a lot easier.Owing to the steel body the pump is robust and easy to handle.The nozzle easily fited onto my schrader valves and after testing the pressure with a digital gauge the gauge on the pump read the same.Great value for the money and excellent packaging and delivery service.

It says that it is "Schrader and presta valve compatible" and this is true, but note that it only has one type of valve (for Schrader) and an adaptor for presta. In any case it is a good quality product.

I like this pump, it is powerful and quickly pumps the tires to full pressure, with a good clear dial. However it does not compare to my previous pump, which could be changed from a Schoeder to a Presta vave attachement with ease and the pump fitted dirrectly to the valve. This pump has a separate attachment, stored on the pump for a presta valve. This has to be placed on the presta valve and then the pump attached to the adaptor. It is fiddly and I wonder how long it will take to loose the separate adaptor. Due to this it looses alot of marks.

2.0 out of 5 stars great for mtb tyres , for road tyres forget it !!!!!, 5 July 2011
This review is from: Beto Track Pump Steel Barrel With Gauge (Sports)
bought this pump as i was fed up with going to the petrol station to put air into my mountain bike (& the reviews were very good),anwyway received from amazon with no problem as usual , was fantastic for mtb tyres , excellent infact , pumped upto 60psi effortlessly , not perfect though as when u release the lock you seam to lose a chunk of air (about 5psi) .. anyway upgraded to some schwalbe city jet 85psi , wasnt as easy as the 60psi , slight struggle but was ok .... i have now upgraded to some continental 1.1/8 grand prix tyres at 116psi & it is actually impossible to get them past about 90psi , seriously i nearly fell over from the effort i was giving to the pump ... so in a nutshell great for tyres up to 85psi .. anything more & FORGET IT , it just cannot cope , have now bought a bontrager charger pump from evans cycles for 21.99 & am in the process of returning this to amazon for a refund ....

4.0 out of 5 stars Very efficient!, 14 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beto Track Pump Steel Barrel With Gauge (Sports)
The video review on how to use the adaptor is very helpful and using the method described I pumped up two of each type of tyre from flat to working pressure in no time at all and with very little effort.

The pump itself feels sturdy and the gauge is easy to read, the only thing I would change would be the parts where you put your feet when pumping. Whilst they do secure the pump they are very noticably raised. I guess someone thought it'd be good for putting your arch on but it just feels a little uncomfortable. Not a big deal at all though; overall I'm very happy with the pump and would recommend any prospective purchaser to look at the video to see how to use the adaptor. After that it's very easy.

Added to that, it's a better price (at time of buying) than you'd find in just about all of the cycling and automotive superstores!

4.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy pump, 29 April 2011
This review is from: Beto Track Pump Steel Barrel With Gauge (Sports)
Pump is sturdily built and looks like it will last a long time. The pressure gauge is clear but because of the high pressure range not very accurate - fine for bike tyres though

I bought this pump last week for my road bike the valve feels and is very cheap. It says it can pump up presta valves it cant it struggles to grip the valve. I would not buy this pump I would spend a little more and get a good quality one instead

1.0 out of 5 stars Not recommended for road bikes, 3 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beto Track Pump Steel Barrel With Gauge (Sports)
I bought this to replace a 15 year old pump that had stopped working properly.
The pump is for Schrader MTB valves and comes with a USELESS adapter for Presta (racing bikes valves).

- When using the adapter for Presta, air comes out everywhere.
- It is way harder to reach 100Psi than my old one.
- It isn't able to go beyond 100 psi unless you want to spend 5 minutes pumping.

14 down the drain. Stay away.
