- Recommend me a pump for my darkside bike please
Another vote for the CO2 canisters. The Genuine Innovation ones seem pretty good (although I haven’t had to use it yet…). I bought one because I’m too lazy to try and get a rod tyre up to 110psi.
Two live in my saddle bag (yes I know, I know). And an extra one or two go in the back of my jersey for longer rides. Simples.Posted 4 years ago
I’m looking for a small, light, reliable pump to fit to my road bike. Not very impressed with my current Spesh offering which seems to let more air out than in!
Just looking for something to ‘get me home’ as I have a track pump for my main inflating duties.
Thanks very much in anticipationPosted 4 years agoransosSubscriber
The Lezyne is the only small pump I’ve used that can get a really good pressure in road tyres. The only problem with mine is it’s developed a slight rattle when it’s in its mount. I’ve solved it by sticking a strip of insulation tape where the pump handle meets the body.Posted 4 years agoFuzzyWuzzySubscriber
I use a Topeak Road Morph on the winter bike as don’t mind a frame-mounted pump but for the summer bike I just carry a Lezyne Pressure Drive in my jersey pocket. I do carry CO2 for sportives as I’ll usually be riding with others and don’t want to hold them up any longer than possible but for training I prefer having a pump safe in the knowledge I won’t be screwed if I have multiple punctures – I know a few people that use hybrid pumps/co2 and seem happy with them but they all seem to be frame-mounted which I don’t want.Posted 4 years agomickolasMember
got a cheapo airwave one from crc 9 years ago. thought “that won’t last two minutes”…it’s fine up to about 90 psi. take it on road and off, all seasons. takes time to fill a 2.4” tyre but is very, very light.
got a topeak road morph last year. found it didn’t weather as well. gets up to high pressures no probs but the guage is a bit hit and miss, give me blisters if I haveto inflate more than once (boo-hoo), and is starting to feel very rough.
