    Looking for Replacement Pump Head

    I'm looking to replace the hose (actually I only really need a new head) on
    my Zefal Husky. The head is the Schrader with thumb-lock variety that has an
    adaptor for presta. The rubber washer/grommet/seal on the presta adapter
    wears quickly and leaks constantly so I'm interested in a new head with thumb-lock that
    automatically adapts to both valve types and that does not rely only on
    friction to stay on and form a seal. Something like the head on my new Zefal HPX
    frame pump. I do need a hose/head combo for both valve types and am seeking
    recommendations. Thanks.

    You might want to consider Topeak's Smart Head or Twin Head - claims to fit every pump out there.

    Check your LBS. I used to keep a pump head or two on hand. Cut about 1/2" from your existing hose and clamp the new one on with a tiny hose clamp. Cost should be >$5.00.

    I just got a rebuild kit for my 20 year old Zefal and a new hose with head here.

    This worked for me with a big floor pump. The head in the kit my LBS sold me works on my bikes and my big truck with no changes. The kit even included the tiny little pipe clamp.

    +1, I put one of these on my Parktools floor pump with a dual head & works real well
