Truflo Mini Shock Pump review: twofer bargain or double trouble?

by 2

The Truflo Mini Shock Pump promises to be more than just a shock pump: it doubles up as a pump for your tyres too. Does all this multi functionality add up to extra smiles?

At £37.99, it’s at the higher priced end of things for a shock pump – but if it’s a two-in-one function, perhaps it works out as a bargain? And of course, if you’re the kind of rider that wants a shock pump out on the trail (I am, I know not everyone is), then it would be a space saver as well as a financial one.

I came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. I like all bikes, but especially unusual ones. More than bikes, I like what bikes do. I think that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments. I try to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.

    Anything with a loose adaptor is going to be missing that adaptor when it’s needed. There’s a lot to be said for the “magic” heads on Joe Blow track pumps and the like.

    Yep, as above, it’s utterly predictable that a loose adaptor will go missing, so speccing it in the first place is a glaring design fault. Not something the tester should be blaming on their own stupidity.
