    How do I convert my Topeak Road Morph....

    I was riding on the Dismal Swamp Canal Trail a few days ago and came across a cyclist walking his MTB. He flatted and didn't have anything for repairs. I always carry a patch kit, tube, Frame Pump & CO2.

    Long story short--- we patched the tube but I had to use one of my CO2 cartidges to inflate his tire. I couldn't figure out how to use my Topeak Road Morph pump on a Schrader valve.

    How do I convert between Presta and Schrader valves??

    Thanks in advance.

    The method used is universal no matter who makes the pump...Go to the Park link I have below and scroll down. It shows how to convert their mini pump which can also be applied to the Morph.

    Flying an airplane is really very simple...Push the stick forward, the house gets big. Pull the stick back, the house gets small. Keep holding the stick back, the house gets big again.

    When I first tried to do this I found it very difficult to get the rubber bit out. What was suggested to me which did work was to undo the metal bit at the top, then put your finger over the hole and depress the pump, this should force the rubber bit out.

    good luck

    Pull out the two pieces, separate them, flip them individually, reconnect, stick it back in.

    There are adapters to allow a presta pump to work on a Schrader valve, just the opposite of the normal adapters. Here's one:

    The topeak road morph rubber insert can easily be swithced. Once you remove the "nut" from the pump head valve, all you need to do is rack in/out the lever to push the rubber piece out enough for you to grab it with your hand.

    GG. This procedure to switch between presta and shraeder should take you no longer than 20 seconds. Any longer and you're wasting ****ing shop time and you're fired.

    You're already fired for not figuring out how to use the pump you bought...

    Thanks. Originally, I was just flipping the rubber insert.
