    Jason, I'll sell you my brand new Performance Hurricane floor pump for $5. It'll save me the trip back for a refund. My 20 year old cast iron presta only pump works too good compared to this....

    But will it pump a tube with a stem extending only a few millimeters past the rim? It's awfully tight clearance even for my frame pumps. I guess for $5, though, I'd be happy to try it out. If it doesn't fix my problem, I can always give it to my coworker who plans to buy a bike soon.

    Why don't you just get valve extenders?

    I tried that last night. My pump won't work with the valve extender, either. Any of my three frame pumps will work with the extender. Not that that does me any good seeing as any of them would also work without the valve extender.

    I'm very much looking forward to this ride. I haven't been riding much this week, so all the more reason to look forward to this one. Maybe with fresh legs, I can keep up with Extort up Ridge Park Rd. (Okay, maybe not.)

    Dunno. I'm not picky. I'll defer to the group.

    I'd love to join you guys...I'm trying to decide if it would make me more sad about not riding. I went upstairs and sat on my bike tonight. It misses me. I can tell.

    Or, it could just make you more excited about starting up again, which will come relatively soon!

    Come for lunch! You gotta eat anyways....

    I haven't had any issues with valve extenders. You did use teflon tape to put them on, and unscrewed/opened the presta valve right?

    The valve definitely was open. Teflon tape. Hmm... no, didn't use that. I'll take some from the lab supply and try again. Applied between the valve and the extender or to seal up the connection between the valve and the extender after the extender's already on?

    Yes, teflon tape definitely helps. When I had my Campy Shamals several years back I remember pushing the presta valve through the extender with a thin wooden dowel each time I was about to pump the tire, otherwise the valve would sometimes stick and would not allow any incoming air.

    I'd say Todai, but they'll probably be closed when we finish.

    Thinking it over, it appears the I should be placing teflon on after putting on the extender. It's not a matter of the valve getting stuck. I can pump low pressure air through with my frame pumps. (Tested it out on a spare tube that wasn't on a rim.) But not at all with my floor pump. Maybe it's because of a leak, and then the pump just also dumping air through the Shrader attachment since it's auto-sensing and can't sense which side has a tube if both sides leak air. We'll see.

    I need a floor pump too. I guess I'll just benefit from Jason's research by finding out which one he settles on and buying that one

    Or, if I end up getting a new floor pump to get around needing a valve extender, you can benefit from my research by buying my other pump for a song. Or there's the one Fixer is offering to sell me for $5. If it doesn't suit my needs, you could buy it.

    By the way, if you need a floor pump, what exactly are you and Melissa using now?

    Jason, then it sounds more like a pump head issue than anything else. These new all-in-one pump heads are crap (reason for returning my new Hurricane pump). The ones I've seen and used that work very well, besides the dedicated presta heads, are the dual heads.....presta on one side and schrader on the other.

    Sounds fun. I suggest you go early. And if you really hate the heat, perhaps just climb Mt Baldy Rd from Claremont instead. I went up Mt Baldy Rd on Monday (roughly 6:30-8:30) and was never in the sun until during the descent. The headwinds tend to be more annoying in the early morning, but on the other hand, the temperatures were perfect.

    That's what I'm thinking. But the other thing is that a pump head that requires minimal valve length would be nice too since it would be nice to not have to put on valve extenders every time I have to pump air.
