- What floor pump?
Bought one of these. Yes Lezyne. But less than £50.Posted 4 years agoblandMember
Any suggestions before I click buy on a silca pista for £28 from winstanleys? Classic long lasting track pump yeah?
Lezyne have the bling factor but my little alloy drive ones a pain and nothing special, plus they are £50 up
Other one I noticed was brants phaart polished alloy one for £35, any one got one, any good?
Oh and EBC one has just exploded and lost part of it so not another one of themPosted 4 years agoblandMember
Silca Pista is amazing by the way, real basic engineering using industrial hoses and connectors with push fittings as used across the hydraulics world and perfected by the Italians.
Something massively different to standard off the peg track pumps with flimsy plastic bits, really impressed and glad i strayed from the norm
This is what im talking about

Have a Silca (from Winstanleys) when my Joe Blow was not functioning. It’s good, but the Presta adapter is fiddly to use. Schraeder is OK, proper screw on thread which you may like or not.
I got a rebuild kit for my old Jow Blow, has gauge at top of barrel which is good, and it has the two-valve (not smart) type of head. It’s a good bit of kit too TBH.Posted 4 years agoalaricMemberNorthwindSubscriber
I use Blackburn Air Towers. They’re cheap and nasty but they shift a load of air fast, which is what you want really. I’d like a better made, longer lived one but the first job is to inflate tyres and these are the best I’ve used.
No idea why people still muck about with screw-on chucks these days.
I’ve got a Joe Blow Sport which is a nicely made pump but nothing like as useful- it takes about 4 times as many strokes to inflate a tyre, very poor for tubeless. (and it’s not any better at road tyres than pumps which move more air).Posted 4 years ago
