    I want one!!!!

    http://www.n-e-life.com/foryou/article2.php?id=78327

    http://www.cyclaire.com/

    A radical British-invented bicycle pump that requires no hard pumping has been awarded Innovation of the Year by Cycling Plus magazine.
    ...
    Julian Peck, the Newcastle-based inventor of Cyclaire, explains,“nobody likes traditional bike pumps.

    "You have to bend down, you lose air at the valve, the bike shakes around, and it can be really hard work to get to the right pressure.

    "Cyclaire solves all these problems, so we’ve beaten competition from around the world to become Innovation of the Year.”

    The Cyclaire is available with or without a waterproof carry case, which can be strapped to any bike.

    Falling down is not exercising.

    I sent an email to see if there are currently any US retailers/distributors, cause, well, I'm cheap.

    i like traditional pumps... sure, i have to bend down, but i don't see how their design would ever eliminate losing air at the valve. and the bike doesn't shake around when you're using a floor pump, and when i use my hand pump, i pump with the wheel off the bike. hand pumps can be difficult to get to the right pressure, but not prohibitivly so...at least for me. maybe that mean old man in the last picture would disagree though, but he could just use a frame pump --they're much easier.

    Doesnt look very portable on the bike. If this thing can get as small as a hand pump and as easy to use as a CO2 inflator, then I'll buy one. In the mean time, I'll just use my $15 floor pump and CO2/hand pump.

    the thing i hate is losing pressure at the valve. if this does eliminate that, i'm in. i only own a hand pump which i use to keep things up, and use a bike shop pump to get things to a higher pressure.

    if this helps me keep my tires at a higher psi at home, i'm ****ing in.

    I received an email back, and there's a couple other choices for purchases:

    www.borntodeal.com (EBay store)

    www.permaco.com (OH based)

    It's $36. Still not a bad price (if it's as good as they say).

    I tested one of these a few years ago when they first came out.

    The "cord" that you yank to propel the air mechanism totally ripped out of the pump after like ten pulls. The inner spring that is supposed to retract the cord into the pump after each pull went "sproing". Disassembly revealed the anchor point of the pump's inner cord to be a knot tied through a plastic spindle, the spindle had cracked and the cord ripped out. And the unit could not be reassembled.

    Woah, is it really that difficult to get a tire up to pressure with a regular pump? Lazy ****s.

    with a floor pump, no. but with the pump i have in my backpack, yes. it just gets to a point where...i dunno, it's like pressure in it and pressure in the tire are nearly equal and you can't really force more air into the tire.
