    Bike pump recommendations?

    I have a crappy Bell bike pump still from my first bike (and a pocket pump for my bike bag). Looking to upgrade my standing pump and am wondering what everyone uses. leaning towards Serfas TCPG Bicycle Floor Pump

    2 floor pumps Medai and Silca, 25 years old. on the bike pumps are for punctures,
    floor pump keeps up the proper pressure as required.

    Guess it really depends on your expectations. Topeak and Park Tool both make good floor pumps. Blackburn makes the most effective mini-pump I`ve tried to date. None of them cost only $10 so you`ll find performance is price related again.

    But if you`re close to a gas station and they have a high pressure compressor hocked up for air tools, then a presta/ schrader valve adapter may be all you really need.

    I've got that pump and have been happy with it. Got it last year at an REI sale. The only odd thing is you have to pump one stroke before it will show what the pressure in the tire really is. After that one pump, the gauge correlates to my other gauges.

    yeah I have a presta valve adapter, so I'm not worried about a pump with that already on it. The bell one just has these cheap plastic that sometimes has a hard time clasping onto the valves of bikes. I should've checked here before buying my portable pump, though it's good enough (Topeak Pocket Rocket) I guess.

    Thanks for the recs
