- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Bought this as a travel pump for road use as it fits in a full size suitcase no prob.
Appears well built and has capability to reach road bike tire pressures, until you try to use it. The weak link is the cheap plastic head that comes with the pump. Other reviews describe a head that screws onto the Presta stem. The one I bought had a 90degree cheap plastic head that slipped onto the stem and held in place by an O ring(Lezyne's 'Speed Chuck'). The O ring held up to 50lbs until the head blew apart leaving the O ring, and plastic threaded ring that holds the O ring in place, on the stem.
Trying to tighten the plastic threaded ring to finger tightness causes it to jump a thread.
Getting the tire to near pressure was a two handed affair as you had to hold the head on the stem with one and pump with the other. PITA.
The hose threads into the wood handle, which is a little show-offy, as it is completely useless when the cheap plastic head is installed on the hose, leaving the hose to flop around. If you remove the cheap plastic head every time to use this feature your bound to lose it(See in Datailed Images in product description)
The pump itself is well made and would prob be a great tool to have but in present config doesn't work for me. Too bad the cheap part takes it out of the running
