    Vintage Looking New Frame Pumps

    I guess the title says it all. Are there any vintage looking frame pumps available? I'm just not into using BB *** cartridges on my bike. When my brother and I saw CO2 pumps for the first time we both said "WOW they're still making whippet dispensers." Anyone under 50 won't understand that last comment.

    I have Park Tools' frame pump on a couple of my bikes: http://www.parktool.com/product/dial...ame-pump-pmp-5

    Blackburn's carbon fiber frame pump is what I have my Litespeed: http://www.amazon.com/Blackburn-Fram.../dp/B000BNZ0LK. I don't find this on Blackburn's website so it must be going out of production & you might find a good deal somewhere.

    I think there was a recent thread about a older pumps still being made. I have a Silca or two I carry on my clincher equiped bikes to shape up the tire before using the C02.

    IMHO your better off carring a pump that works and wil get your tire up 100psi or whatever you like. for that i don't think there is a better pump than the Zefal HPX pums which come in 3 or 4 different lengths. Zefal I believe just reintroduced this a Classic item for around $40.

    I certainly don't understand the reference and I'm not too far removed from that age. Anyway, getting back OT. I've only got one bike with a frame pump on it currently and would like to know of some options too. Maybe VO will step up to the plate and recreate the alloy body Bluemels pump. That's what I'd like to see personally.

    One of my LBS's sells Primus aluminum pumps with red and blue rings. Looks very French, but it also needs two clips/pegs. Also aluminum Tagamex pumps that need one clip. Both work very well, Presta-only. I don't know if they're actually new or just new-old stock. The shops here would rather hang onto stuff for 20 years than mark it down and move it.

    +1 on the Zefal pumps for quality and reliability, although with the graphics and all they have kind of a modern look. I know they can be stripped and polished but that's a lot of work. I recently tried to get one powder coated along with a frame, but couldn't figure out how to get all the plastic bits off. The coater assured me they'd either melt or become fatally brittle in the oven so I nixed the idea.

    I like my Topeak MasterBlaster frame pump. It's not terribly modern looking.

    That is a pump I was considering. Can they be disassembled and painted?

    I didn't know what it is, but this is what I found:


    How Whippet ******* works

    [IMG]http://n2ocrackers.com/images/n2o-*******.png[/IMG]A N2O dispenser is used to break the seal foil wrapper on the nitrous oxide tube. Any type of nitrous oxide tube that you can readily purchase at the store is going to have a foil tip. In order for you to get to the gas you need something to crack the whippet’s foil tip. You also have to release the gas in to a medium so it can warm a bit. Also with N2O dispensers it is nice if they are small and easily concealable. If you have one of the bigger crackers they are hard to bring to parties without everyone knowing what you are doing. With most N2O whippet dispensers you are going to need a balloon for the whippet’s gas to flow into and then be easily used. Do not buy cheap balloons because they are a waste of money, they will break on you with only a couple of uses. You should always get thick and heavy duty balloons so they don’t break from the extremely cold temperatures that are released when cracking whippets.

    The Zefal Lapize is vintage looking and is still being made. I paid $3.15 for mine from xxcycle.com. They have gone up a couple of dollars the last time I looked.

    I have one that looks like this one, but is just an HP--no X. It's rated at 110psi, or thereabouts, but I have never gotten more than 85 out of it. I need to study up on how to make any frame pump reach its rated pressure.

    Life is is too short to care what others think of your bike.

    No. I have one, and am glad there's something available in that size, but pumping a tire up to 50 psi is hard work, and I don't know how much higher than that you can go.

    That's why I carry CO2 dispensers. The pump is cosmetic and the dispensers serve me if I get a flat.

    hey- can you give us a direct link to that pump? i can tfind it on the website.

    another consideration for a vintage pump- are they not some new models that go inside the seat tube and can be completly hidden? I like this as I also do not need to worry about it being stolen.
