This is to solicit recommendations for a digital pressure gauge that works well with Presta valves.
In the past I used a Meiser mechanical gauge, but over time it started giving erratic or no readings. Having success with conversion to digital in other instruments, I've got a Topeak D2 gauge, based on positive Amazon reviews.
Using the high resolution of D2 has been a pleasant experience. Unfortunately that gauge turned out to be, otherwise, a poor compromise in the area of utility for both Schrader and Presta valves. In the Presta setting, the central post sticks out and depresses the valve well before you manage to secure the gauge over the valve. In effect, you lose a good deal of air before you manage to take any measurement. To compensate, you try to place the gauge quickly over the valve. However, misalignment is likely in effect of the bulky stem of the gauge. If the gauge and valve are not properly aligned and you apply a large force to get it done quickly, you can damage the valve. In fact, today I managed to rip the pedestal of the valve in a pumped tube and decided to move on from D2.
Have you had any good experiences at the interface of digital pressure gauges and Presta valves? Thanks.
