The topic more or less says it all, but I am looking for a pump with a good value for money ratio.
What do you have and what can you recommend?
Thank you in advance.


Michael

I've had a few over the years. My old Silca was the one I liked best, but they changed it after I went to get another. I have 2 now. A $20 POS from the LBS that works just fine and has been going for 4 years without a single issue except the rubber grommet in the head died. Called the company and they sent me 3 for free! The second, which I like best is the Blackburn Airtower 5. I have the aluminum one (there is a carbon fiber version for bling). Great volume per stroke. The head is simply chit, so I ended up replacing it for a Silca head. Best of both worlds now! Simply love it in this configuration.

If you're interest is in floor pumps, by far the best I've ever had is a Lezyne. High quality/well made; lots of options and I love its screw-on head rather than the common clamp-on head that never seem to work well IMO. Shop around as you can usually find them at a good discount too...

Silca is top. Lezyne is great also.

Second Lezyne! I just got one and really like it. You get what you pay for and this is a high quality pump.

I have the Topeak Joe Blow Pro in the basement cycling repair area. Amazingly this pump is still made by Topeak. It works great. In the garage cycling area I have a Silca Super Pista with a Topeak hose and pump head on it. Best of both worlds. Great pump with a great pump head.

Sorry for not being more precise, I need a portable pump to bring along, when I am out riding.
I already have a floor pump, but thank you for your input.

+1 on the Lezyne.

Apart from them being excellent pumps, dump the bracket and you can keep them up the seat post for a super tidy bike.
