Looking for floor pump that will accept a Leyzne hose

Does any one know a make of floor pump that will accept a Lezyne hose? I love the old Lezyne screw-on chuck but have had numerous gauge failure with Lezne pumps. Would like to fit a Lezyne hose/chuck head combo onto a more reliable pump. (most use a larger diameter hose and fixture thread).

Any suggestions or recommendations?

Most pumps use barb fittings at both ends of the hose. There's no standard, but you can eyeball the hose diameter and use that as a guide. If the hose is similar the barb fitting will be also.

So, don't worry about the threads. Buy the pump of your choice that has a similar hose, cut the hose off at the base, and likewise cut the threaded end off your hose, and attach the hose to the barb using a small hose clamp.

Lezyne sells the Dual Valve heads separately, as well as the ABS1 Pro series heads, which I use. If its barbed fitting is too loose in your pump hose a bit of electrical tape and/or a small worm-drive hose clamp should put things right. My High Volume ABS1's barbed fitting was a tight fit in the hose for my old Air Hammer pump, but a little alcohol (for lube) and some grunting got it installed.

I have a 25 year old floor pump (Zefal Double Shot even!) on it's third hose. I just splice the new one onto the stub of the OEM hose, using a double ended brass tube barb from my local hardware store, and use tiny hose clamps to tighten the hoses down onto the barb. Andy

Thanks for the feedback. Still looking for a solid metal pump.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I will use a hose clamp and forget the Leyzne collet.

I thought about using the double ended tube barb but was hoping to find a good reliable pump with a solid metal barb I could attach the Leyzne hose to. Again, any suggestions?

None of my old collection of (cheap) pumps had a good metal barb (either plastic or a propriety fitting).

Looking for a pump with solid metal fittings and good gauge at doesn't explode on me (like the Leyzne).

All the feedback is greatly appreciated. I'm so happy I found Bike Forum.

I have an old nashbar pump that I've done just what you're talking about. The internal diameter of the nashbar tubing (and thus the barb) was a bit wider than the lezyne, so getting the lezyne tubing on the the barb was a tight fit, but it was definitely worth it (the tube cost more than I spent on the whole pump on clearance 10+ years ago), because it gave new life to a pump with a crappy plastic head (and finally let me use the pump for balls or yoga balls as I can now screw a needle or cone thing into the head). I recently switched from the older head (that I really liked the functionality of), to the newer style 90 degree angle head that I don't feel works quite as well, but I've been pumping up a lot of 12" and 16" wheels lately and the older head doesn't fit in there. That time, I just swapped the heads (and cut off maybe 1 cm of tubing).

Thank you himespau, dsbrantjr, and all the others for sharing your advice. I now have the confidence to retrofit an old pump with the Lezyne hose and screw-on head. I'll let you know how it turns out.
