    Help choosing right pump for trek

    I have a trek 7.2 fx with bontrager h2 plus 700x35c tires with recommended psi of 60-80 and have schrader valves. So should I be getting a high volume hand pump or a high pressure one? Any trekkies care to respond as well because I'll be glad to hear it. Thanks for the help guys.

    Maybe this:

    "Dual action handles high-volume ATB or high-pressure road tires- even over 100 psi"

    So, would it be too much to ask to get a high volume pump that does a maximum 90psi to get to 80 psi on 700x35c tires I have?

    That would be fine, but in the future you might want to get skinnier tires.
    And usually they run at higher pressures, so my recommendation would be
    for a pump that goes at least 100psi(higher would be better in case you
    switch to another bike in the future)

    Thanks for your input and I'm taking your advice and have decided to get the Lezyne Pressure Drive which can do up to 120.
