what pump do you use? (for >100 psi presta)

by dave95   November 18, 2012  

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.

My knee hurts!

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!

If I could have, say, 6 bikes, would it stop me drooling over others that I don't have?
