    Has anyone replace the "Chuck" on their floor pump?

    I have a pretty-much-other-wise-okay PARK floor pump, the rubber in the Chuck has worn.
    I feel there should be a way to replace this, is there? I guess I could chop it off and put a whole new chuck on there.. maybe... hmmm

    Wish I could just replace the gasket inside there, like on the old Zefal's instead of the whole head!

    they sell after market pump heads. I'm about to buy a Hirame Pump Head for my lezyne pump. I guess it would work w/other pumps too. I'm sure they make some that aren't as expensive as the hirame.

    This pump head is worth every penny.

    The rubber gasket inside the pump head does wear out over time. They usually sell the hose and head together as one unit. $10 -$15. You could replace with original Park parts or just go to your LBS as they will probably have several universal styles that will work as well.

    Have been happy with a Topeak Smarthead and hose kit which I bought for my favourite Specicalized pump. I would expect Park sells the rubber gromit you need though - they're pretty good like that.

    I replaced my pump head last summer. Took about 5 minutes and saved me from having to replace the entire pump.

    Don't get too happy with your Smarthead - they last about a year before they break! I've gone through 3 in 2 years. They especially don't like threaded valve shafts!

    You can get an aftermarket pump head to replace what you have. Many pumps, like the Silca Superpista have readily available replacement parts. I'd highly recommend the slip-on style (as opposed to lever-twist style) chucks and use smooth valve stem tubes. SO easy to use and they last forever.
