New Lezyne tire pump

I just picked up my Lezyne XL tire pump. It came with a needle, a speed Chuck and a white conical thing that looks like the pen cap of a Bic pen.

What is it and how do you use it?

I think that may be for inflating stuff like air mattresses and therapy balls and stuff. Does that seem right?

Thanks for all the replies.

It's nice that Lezyne includes extras just to make life a little easier. The only thing missing is a little carrying pouch so you don't lose those things.

This is intriguing on several levels. Were you an essay writer for the company? Did the problems have to do with carrying beach balls on beach cruisers, or something similar to that?

I'd restrict using that to pumping up beach balls etc. I have vivid memories of pumping up a blow up bed with a track pump - took about 45 minutes, though was the best arm workout I had in a loooonnggg time.

Lol. Reminds me of a post from a fellow who claimed to have pumped up a car tire with a bicycle pump. I was thinking that it must have been a young guy - when he started.

Ha. I once used a Topeak Morph to pump up a lady's spare tire after stopping to help after her left front wheel separated from her SUV. It wasn't one of those little donut spares either, but a full size one that was mounted on the back. Took a little while to get it hard enough to drive on I can tell ya.

You know, I used to have a car with a slow puncture - too cheap at the time to have it repaired - every week i'd go out to it and top it up with the track pump, a hell of a lot easier then the blow up bed! Obviously after a while I decided it best to sell the car and buy a new one rather than to continue with the puncture

My wife has a big blue balance ball, and I attach the plastic conical thing to my floor pump to inflate it for her every so often.

I have this pump (different head). Be careful with Lezyne pumps. The gauge on mine is way off, I'd say about 12 psi which is pretty inaccurate compared to my other pumps.

The head works good on mine though. Don't insert presta valve more than 1/4 inch though, it will get stuck.

The pump I purchased is the micro floor drive XL. It's for fat bike tires with the maximum duty of 35psi.

I wouldn't be surprised if it can be used for car tires since the air cylinder is so much bigger than regular bicycle hand pumps. But it may take about a hundred strokes and it would be a good idea to remove the wheel from the car before pumping.

PSI is PSI regardless of whether the car is resting on the tire. I have no idea how many strokes for a car tire but I'm pretty sure that 100 isn't going to do it.
