I am currently in the market for both a decent floor pump and mini pump. I currently have a Diamondback floor pump and mini pump that I got at Dicks Sporting goods when i started cycling. I struggle to get the mini pump to 60psi with my road bike tires and it just wont go any higher regardless of how much i pump. The floor pump will pump to 130+ psi, but it doesnt fit right on presta valves. I have to let almost all of the air out of the tube and then mount the head for it to work. The pump will not work if there is no air in the tubes either.
So for a floor pump I am looking for something easy to use with a gauge that will last for a few years.
The mini pump issue is a bit more complicated. I dont have any place to mount it on the bike itself. I have a Specialized Allez Elite Cro-Mo and it has cables without housings under the top tube, so I cant mount a pump there. I havent tried mounting pumps next to the bottle cages, but on my mountain bike I thought they just got in the way. My saddle bag (Topeak Aero Wedge) has a pump holder and that is where I currently mount my pump. Pumps larger than 8-9" will stick out pretty far and look odd. I am hoping to find a pump that will reach 100-110psi without horrible trouble.
Performance Bike currently has a combo with the Joe Blow Pro and Barbieri Carb One for $70. With the current 20% coupon that would be $56 for both. Is this a good deal and would this be a good choice or should I look else where?
