So today was a catastrophic FAIL day...first the ac got a leak and half the main room got flooded, then on the way home, my frame pump fell into the wheel, causing me to almost wipe out (I recovered nicely, thank goodness--no injuries whatsoever), and breaking a nipple. The nipple's being fixed as I type (thank you helen's cycles!), but the rear triangle is hopelessly scratched up, and my frame pump is a goner.
So I might as well upgrade the pump while I'm at it, right? Any suggestions for a replacement pump that'll fit the pump pegs on the brommie? I'd like one with a gauge, preferably. Also, how do I avoid nasty incidents like this one?
