$84 Pump?! Bah, humbug! Post your pumps!

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

I was wondering if Pcad was modeling that shoe.

A split second after clicking on this thread, I thought to myself, "Why am I clicking on a "Post your pump" thread?"
I saw the $84 (sale price) carbon pump on chainlove and saw the thread about it here. A carbon
pump? Geez, whatever someone is willing to pay for, I suppose.

When I saw the first reply, I started laughing and it kept getting louder with each post I saw.


Thanks guys for the humor, y'all really cheered me up.

Best laugh I've had in a loooong time. Love the 1st pic. The 2nd, well, I almost bought one of those once, or maybe I did and returned it - can't really remember. Mine is a little longer than that, same brand I think. The CO cartridge (presumably when expired) screws into my pump to extend the handle.

As you can see this model allows you to hook it up to your bike and trail it behind you.
