    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.

    A hand pump works best, they're cheap enough, and will blow either shrader or presta, and they have a guage built in.. Happy Trails

    Not all hand pumps are both , some are schrader only , that's why they sell Presta adapters .
