I have a mountain bike. Right now I have a cheap $10 schwinn hand pump. I dont feel like it works very well. It also feels like I am breaking my valve too. One time I put it on my valve then pumped it like 50 times it it seemed like it was stuck on the valve and hard to come off and it broke off when I removed it. Also, it has a lock on the pump but I never use the lock. I dont know what its for.
What pump should I get? I dont want to spend more than $30 and I will probably buy off of amazon unless it is cheaper somewhere else. Looking through reviews it seems like these are some good ones. Is it better to get a pump with the gauge built in?I dont know anything about bikes so if you can assume that in your response that is great. I bike about 2 miles a day in the city. My front tire has been going flat pretty often.
