Amazon.co.uk:Customer reviews: VeloChampion METAL Alloy 9 Mini Bike Pump With Pressure Gauge – Fits Presta & Schrader (Reversible Valve) With 120 PSI / 8.3 Bar Max Pressure – Portable, Compact, Durable
Pump arrived today is the review is based on how it performed today. Time will tell about the built quality. Small and compact. It does take a few minutes to inflate a tire but it's small so expected. Handle is comfortable but sometimes slips when you go over 50 psi. I put 65psi in my tires with no much trouble.
The only thing I didn't like is that you have to attach the pump directly to the valve. There is a risk of breaking it at higher psi. It also makes it a bit uncomfortable to pump. I wish there would be a connector included.
I bought the Raleigh Schrader/Presta Adaptor for traditional pumps and works like a charm. It's about £2.5 and makes it easier and faster to pump. Definitely recommend getting one.
Other than that, I'm happy with it. Just don't expect premium metal body for this price.
Great little pump, got tyre to 60 psi with no problem. Only fault was that the supplied bracket could not hold the pump, but, this was due to the mounting on my bike being so close to the gear linkage bracket, I just used another bracket that was offset, also the Velcro strap was a bit too short for the width of my bike frame, but again that's done to the bike. This is a great pump and I would not hesitate to buy again
I can't fault this item, it does what it says on the tin and works very well.
I like that it is compact, and while it includes a mount to attach to the bike frame, I've chosen not to attach it this way, as the pump protrudes from the bike frame slightly when mounted. This isn't an issue as the form factor is small enough to go in the rucksack I take with me anyway.
I've used this pump to slightly inflate my tyres when the pressure has dropped a little and didn't take too many pumps to achieve the pressure I wanted. I can't comment on pumping from flat but can't see it being too exhausting.
Word of advice, configure the pump for your valve type before taking this out with you. Last thing you want to be doing on the road side is fiddling about and, potentially losing, the small components needed to switch the valve type.
For the price I have to say I wasn't expecting much in regards to quality but I was pleasantly surprised how sturdy and well built this pump was when it arrived.
For a small pump it does work really well and hasn't let me down thus far. But the best thing about this is that it's something you can carry around with you wherever you go with it being very compact and lightweight.
Accidents on the road do happen and it's so easy to run over a nail or even some glass and ending up being stuck on the side of the road. Having a handy pump in your backpack like this and a repair kit can make sure you have always got a plan b if anything does arise.
Great little pump. Provides a tight seal for Presta bike valves which is not always the case with cheaper products. You can easily pump the tire to 70-80PSI and then it requires quite a bit of strength to go beyond those values but still can be done. Easily fits in a back pack and the built in pressure indicator really does help to maintain the right tyre pressure. Would recommend to anyone :-)
Surprisingly powerful pump for such as small size. I have had no problems with it in the short time I have had it. Take it with me for each ride. I sometimes bungee strap it to the bikes carrier; other times I put it in a pocket! It also comes with its own mount but I don't need it.
I've unpacked it, but not uses it yet. My first impressions are that it's lighter than expected. Which is a bonus. I prefer to carry in my rucksack than attach to bike. But, it is supplied with bracket should I choose to keep it on my bike frame. Can be used on chunky mtb tyres or road tyres. It has to stop raining soon, and when it does I'll get my bike out and try it. So will update if necessary.
Well, I can now say that it works. It feels sturdy, I'd recommend it.
The pump is very light. I carry it in a backpack but could fasten it to the bike with the supplied bracket and velcro fastening strap. Changing the valve attachment was a little confusing at first, but follow the instructions closely and it's easy enough. It pumps my tyre easily but I am not sure how it would fair with a very high-pressure tyre. The one-star loss is because the pressure gauge is tiny and hard to read. It might be better if it had different colour bands to make it easier to gauge pressure.
Seems like a great little pump for the price and size, managed to get my tyres up to 60psi with the built in gauge (which is an excellent and impressive feature for such a small thing). Took me a few minutes to figure out how to attach the clip for mounting it to the bike frame but it works just fine, and if you're so inclined you could drill holes and bolt it on. Impressed so far, will update if there's anything else worth noting
