- Track Pump, buy cheap buy twice or will any one do?
joe blow: they last about 6 months of every day workshop use, probably about ten years of home use.
we bought in a rennkompressor special order for a customer with tubs because it’s ‘industry standard’ it broke on the first tyre. not convinced. And they only do presta.Posted 7 years agoandrewhMember

THen got a plastic Halfords one for less than a tenner, lasted two years, got another SKS now but they seem to have stopped doing the nice metal ones, although the new one does have a gauge.stayhighMember
I’ve had a Specialized Air Tool for about 5 years now and has been great for tubeless. Recently it began to stick on the down stroke and became very juddery. On closer inspection the o ring inside has given up the ghost and now it doesnt work at all. I’ve tried a couple of local DIY places but havent found one that fits, if I cant find a suitable replacement I think I’ll get a Joe Blow Sprint as IIRC it has some good reviews and scored a 9/10 in mbr a while back.Posted 7 years agocoatesyMember
Had my Blackburn TP3 for years with no problems, the one in the workshop died in a matter of months.Using a Leyzine Steel Floor Drive in my bay,had to replace the connector with one from a scrap Joe Blow Sport(which lasted a few years,replaced with the same for the other bay)after very few uses as it wouldn’t fit most schraeder valve, also doesn’t put in much air per stroke so not much cop for tubeless.We also have a Joe Blow Max which we keep for tubeless inflations as it puts in hell of a lot of air per stroke, but it’s high ratio makes it very difficult to reach high pressures(the owners 10 yr old son can put his entire weight on it and it won’t move on a tyre with 35psi), may be the one to go for.Posted 7 years ago
