    I need a solid floor pump.

    I have been using my neighbor's joeblow sport and I like it, but reading reviews i see that it breaks alot. I've been looking at alot of pumps on amazon and many have mixed reviews. One that looks cool is the Nashbar Pump L'Orange..

    I pump tires at least a couple bikes a week (I fix/sell bikes as a hobby/side business)
    I need an easy, fast attachment to valve, both presta and schrader.
    I need accurate meter reading, and it needs to be sturdy.
    Pressure up to 120.

    Any recommendations? Price is not really an issue--I'd like to buy quality and not have to buy another soon down the line.

    Most floor pumps are hollow to hold the air.

    Ok I want one that's solid and hollow at the same time. Is that physically possible?

    A lot of my friends really like the Specialized AirTool.

    I've a Walmart Schwinn floor pump and don;t care for it too much.

    I have a Specialized Air Tool. Works well. Worth the money.

    I think it's just the regular. And there's no switching, you just stick it on the valve -- presta or shrader -- flip up the lever, and pump.

    Silca floor pumps work well, are sturdy and reliable, and repairable. Also, competitively priced among good floor pumps.
