    Floor pump recommendations

    I need to replace my current pump. It's starting to release air in places it shouldn't. Any pumps out there that are reliable for high pressure with a gauge. Let me know. Thanks.

    If your pump is worth fixing & able to be fixed maybe just replacing the seals will be enough, that is guessing the seals are the problem. Otherwise this is a good pump: http://www.parktool.com/products/det...17&item=PFP-3#

    It is the one I have & use. Works great.

    I've been very happy with my Park Tool PFP-2. The spring-clip retainer thingie looks as if it might cut into the hose over time so I replaced mine with a Velcro™ strap.

    This is the pump I have and I've been very happy with it.

    Thanks for all your advice. I got one called "Wrench Force". It came with a life time warranty and I noticed that it was the one they used at my LBS.

    Yep, this is a good'un. We have been using ours for about 20+ years.

    We also use a Serfas FP100 which is nice, but the Medai so far has much more stayin power. The Serfas is only about 2 years old.

    We have a bell floor pump called 'the jury' which sounds kind of creepy. I gave up on it last night, switched to topeak frame pump to make sure I got up to 100psi (not easy but easier than that bell pump).
