Trackpump for tubeless tyres.
I had a Joe Blow Sport, it wasn’t very good for tubeless- low volume. The Mountain is probably better.
I use Blackburn Air Tower 2s, pretty cheap and nasty but they shift a lot of air. I counted it out, it takes about 1/3d as many strokes to inflate a tyre compared to the Sport.Posted 3 years agojairajSubscriber
Any of the Lezyne Dirt range of pumps. The dirt range is specifically for mountain bikes are are designed to be high volume pumps.
I have an older road type pump a friend has one of the newer high volume ones and it is noticeably easier to get tubeless tyres seated and inflated.Posted 3 years ago
First time I’ve ever failed to inflate tubeless tyres with a trackpump, but I’m blaming the freaking abysmal BBB piece of crap that I bought from the Chicken’s closing down sale. Only had it a few months, the greatest pleasure I had from it was lobbing in the wheelie bin.
So, what pump do I replace it with, that shifts plenty of air but it would be useful if it could go to 100psi for the road bike. (still need a new one even if I resort to using the airline at work this time)
I only use Presta valves, if that helps.Posted 3 years agochris_dbMember
I have a knackered old wheel that I inflate new tubeless tyres on with a tube for 24hrs before I fit it to my Flow EX. This gets rid of dinks in the bead from folding.
After that I use a Phaart track pump from On-One. It has a dual function valve and a good volume.

I’ve got a couple of track pumps and never managed to seat tubeless with them, even with removable cores.
I just seat with CO2, deflate, add sealant and then pump with the track pump (CO2 + sealant doesn’t mix, apparently).
Generally though, I like the Joe Blow I’ve got. I’ve heard of issues with the valve though, but not had a problem myself. I prefer it to the other cheapie Halfords one I’ve got which I always whack my finger with the release lever when undoing it for some reason and then struggle to pull it off the valve.Posted 3 years agoToastyMember
Another Joe Blow here, done stacks of tyres on it, usually don’t even bother removing the valve core. Had a few hideous ones that have required tons of foam and manic pumping (that couldn’t have sounded much worse), but they usually go up easily. Did some Butchers/Purgatory last weekend 🙂Posted 3 years ago
