I have a cheap bike I inherited, a motiv. I have a tire pump for it, a Mt Zefal Graph.
I can't seem to get the pump to put pressure in the tire. It has a rudimentary gauge and the gauge does not budge. I am so frustrated, I don't know if I am doing something wrong or what.
I try pushing the pump on the shraeder valve and lifting the pump lever and pumping, but pumping takes super human force and the valve isn't moving and the tire is staying soft. I got so mad out of frustration that I chucked the pump.
I cheap stand up pump does no better.
I want to ride badly and I can't.
