I liked the extra long cylinder and I liked the large, easily legible dial. The head was OK, but I would have preferred one made for just presta valves. The automatic switching of the dual head requires some pressure in the tire. When trying to pump a pressure-less tire (after you've patched an inner tube, for example) air often just comes out the wrong hole (the one not connected to a valve), and since the switch between the two valve types is automatic, there is no way of manually forcing the air to go the way you want it to. I would have to use my hand pump (just a few strokes) to get the first bit of air into the tube. This was a small inconvenience I could live with, since most of the time I was simply topping off to get the tire pressure I wanted.
The plastic base flexes a bit when pumping, and I was worried this would be the weak point of this pump - BUT - after only 19 months of use, one side of the handle (which is also plastic, but feels more sturdy) broke off! I used the pump maybe two to three times a week on average and I usually pumped to 8-8,5 Bars (abt. 115-125 PSI). The day it broke I was only trying to get to 7 Bars (abt. 100 PSI).
I am now looking for a new floor pump and the experience with this pump has taught me to look for one with a wood handle and a metal base, and I would advise you to do the same, if you want a pump that lasts...
