    Recommendations For Tire Pump

    what would you recommend for a good, quality, tire pump.

    I hate to spend a 'bargain price' and get junk. I don't mind paying a fair price for quality

    i've never had the need for a pump before as I've always had a compressor, but due to lightening the load for moving, I no longer have one.

    what would you recommend?

    For a floor pump go with a Park PFP-3; they should cost about $25. I have had one for several years and its still my favorite of all the different ones I have used.

    I've had good luck with my Serfas Airbones. Be sure to get one that has both presta and schrader on one head, it saves a lot of headache.

    I've had good luck with Axiom pumps...in fact both my floor pump and my mini are made by them.

    i've been happy with my $30-ish black specialized pump for home use. at the shop we use the all silver $60-ish specialized pump and it's taken a ton of abuse and still works great. i'd highly recommend any pump with a "smart head" that does both presta and schrader automatically, no parts to switch, no adapters, no two holes on the pump head, lots of makers are using that style now, it's handy.

    I just got a cheap car tire floor pump from an auto store and cut it down to about 8 Inches. Light enough and I can fill my tires in seconds...

    I use a Topeak Joe Blow Sport, got it for around $30. I like it because it has both the schraeder/presta valve mouth ready along with a gauge, and adapters for pumping up basketballs, etc. For travel, I have a Blackburn Mt, for around $15. It hasn't failed me yet but sure takes a heck of a lot longer pumping up a tire on this compared to a floor pump.

    I have found that the cheap, lightweight mini-pumps are worthless. They eventually break and not worth the $10. Stick with pumps that are sturdy and of quality.

    Would go for the Park Tool floor pump, for your trail kit, I am really liking the Crank Bros pump, its small, light and works well for when you need a pump on a ride...
