Anyone Selling Vintage Silca Floor Pumps Circa 1990?
In the market for a floor pump, replacing a Zefal (German) purchased 1987 and have been overdosing on internet reviews of all available models. I like the concept of unit being serviceable with replacement parts (brass valve heads and leather gaskets), this seems to be Silca's specialty. However, articles boil down to early models (1990 and earlier) built with Columbus tubing that work correctly for years and years versus what the company is building now which are getting negative or at best mixed reviews. Topeak, Blackburn, Wrenchforce, Serfas and Zefal all get high marks except for the fact that when they malfunction you have to toss them as made in China with no user serviceable parts. For $75 or more initial cost that's disturbing. Anyone know of a source for early Silca Pistas or Super Pistas? Willing to pay more for a good used unit from the early years.
