Turns out I have been under-inflating my Fortezza tricomps.

I'm not sure the pump I'm using will get them over 100psi.

I'm also using a schrader to presta adapter which probably doesn't help matters.

Supposedly the psi for the tyres is 116-175

What do you use?

Bontrager track pump (though a clubmate has a lovely Lezyne with nifty head that is tempting).

Lezyne track pump and lezyne road drive. Both do the job - not cheap but you'll love them forever!

Lezyne here as well. Though the stock screw on heads can be pretty annoying when they unscrew valve cores. I replaced mine with a Hirame head.

Joe blow Sport at home.

Crank Brother mini high pressure on the road.

Both go well over 100psi without too much bother.

Thanks, that Tesco pump looks a good shout

~ 15 quid, presta without adapter and rated to 160psi think I'll try and grab one if they have one round here

I paid £15 in Edinburgh Bike Co-op for a Revolution ('Sport'?) model, I can't believe how much elbow grease was needed using my mini pump compared to this!
