Reccomend a track pump please ...

by phax71   September 19, 2011  

Hello again..

Ok, I need a new Track Pump after recently blowing the handle offa my LIDL/ALDI £5 jobby...

I need something capable of 120psi, but ideally 160psi and above and dont wanna pay more than £30.

I used a Joe Blow:

at my LBS recently which seemed pretty sturdy and also a Specialised:

.. which I wasnt quite as happy with.

The Joe Blow seems to be getting my moolah at the moment, what are you guys using?

Cheers!!!

I have a Bontrager Charger, it goes up to 110psi with no real effort, and has 160 on the gauge but I'm not sure how easily it'll actually go up to that. Can be had for £20 or so.

Which brand of pump did you get from Lidl? because i did that with an old track pump from them, then got the one that was on offer at the start of this month, works a treat at 140psi

I think it was actually ALDI when I think about it, it's a Bikemate. It seemed great when I brought it, I think I may have even posted on here about it ... a few months later though .... BANNNGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Think I'm going with the JOE BLOW, JE James have it on at £26.

Cheers!!

Lezyne classic floor drive. Expensive but beautiful.
(and it works well too)

Lezyne Steel Floordrive. Feels lovely to use, easily hits 160psi and the screw on metal chuck is totally fool-proof (well it has survived my cack-handed attempts so it must be pretty good Wink )

Well, discussion over I guess ...

I've just been and fetched me the Joe Blow Sport II, my LBS pricematched JE James, so £25.99 all looks good to me..

Thanks for the advice, The Lezyne pumps do indeed look very nice ... times are hard though ... Sad

I've got a btwin track pump (made out of aluminium I think) and it was £24.99. Works fine but doesn't have a screw fitting for the valve.
