Which Joe Blow?
In the finest stw tradition, none of ’em. They’re nicely made but not amazing performers- the Mountain is good but not for road.
I like my Air Towers, they’re cheap and nasty feeling but they work really, really well- shift tons of air but also will do 120psi, a great balance. Miles better than my old Joe Blow. But probably there are better options.Posted 3 years ago
I currently have the cheapest Joe Blow track pump, which is about 5 years old. It’s started blowing the air out of the schrader side when attached to a presta valve and replacing the available head parts hasn’t fixed it. A new head is about £16 so I may just replace the lot.
Question is which one to go for? It’ll be used for mtb and road tyres.Posted 3 years agoz1ppyMember
Having had my Joe Blow for something like 10 years, with occasional refurbs, I thinks there great but will seriously consider something more substantial when I come to replace it. It’s one of those over looked tools that you just rely on to work & will use for years and years with little or no maintenance (luckily no one trying to change valves standards ATM). I’m impressed with the lezyne metal floor pumps & they will be seriously considered when the time comes, as my JB is showing it’s age. There seriously quite expensive but if they last, that’s well worth the investment.Posted 3 years agonjee20Subscriber
Thanks for the suggestions I’ve ignored them totally and I’ve gone for a Joe Blow Sprint @ £36 which I thought was pretty resonable.
FWIW, I now use the basic Spesh Air Tool Sport (IIRC), find it lasts far longer than Joe Blows I used to use, in fact it’s what we used in the workshop at the LBS as they lasted so well.Posted 3 years ago
