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

how many pumps do you have ?

ok i got this guy:

https://www.amazon.com/Industries-MV5...5&sr=8-2-fkmr2

i am almost certainly getting this guy:

https://www.amazon.com/Lezyne-Road-Dr...6035227&sr=8-1

in medium silver

but i am also considering this unit:

https://www.amazon.com/Lezyne-Alloy-F...6035323&sr=8-7

but i am wondering if three pumps is too much ?

my electric pump works AWESOME on cars and on my mountain bike back in NY, but i am not sure i want to use it on my road bike ?

i want an easy to use and accurate pump to maintain constant pressure in my tires. the road drive doesn't have a pressure gauge and is somewhat hard to use. the electric one requires you to open the hood, connect it directly to the battery ( its too powerful for lighter adapter ) is quite heavy and cumbesome and it would be difficult to control the pressure with it accurately because it flows air extremely fast ( about 3 times faster than gas station pumps ).

what do you think ?

Same here.

There was a thread a few weeks ago about electric pumps, I think that is overkill. But get what you want.

what do you think ?
I take it you haven't tried it on your road bike tires yet. Please record video when you do.


[edit - on-topic] I have one pump, a Joe Blow floor pump. I carry those ticking time-bomb CO2 cartridges on the bike.
