Solid, high quality, our "family pump"
on 12 September 2014
Bought it because a chap helped me out when arriving at a park with my son to practice bike riding and missed to check air and had no pump. My 5-year old was totally impressed (since he was allowed to use it). I have to say we both were equally impressed, and since I have no solid pump, we decided to order this one as our first "family pump".
It's totally solid and sturdy and the hose and valve connector are well made and definitely not cheap.
The gage works well (though you have to pay attention since it moves as you press the handle down while the pump reaches the same pressure as the tire already has and then drops as you finish the stroke).
Takes only a few strokes to pressurise any bike tire. The foot plate allows you to secure the pump and you can use your body weight to push the handle down, which makes the task quite easy.
We have this pump now for several weeks and it performs well. I would not hesitate recommending this pump to anyone who looks to buy a pump that lasts a long time or is up for heavy use (the guy who helped us at the parking lot seemed like a real mountain bike pro and he praised this pump, too).
