Bottom Line:   
Don't buy this pump. It worked ok for awhile if you like to get most of your exercise before you ride. I tried to pump up a road tire and the bottom just blew out. Total garbage.

cheap price

cheap quality

Bottom Line:   
This thing stinks. It heats up to about 200 degrees when you use it...which in turn melts all the cheap rubber on this inside seal. I think they get their 'rubber' from the same place that huffy gets its bike tires.

Bottom Line:   

I actually won one of these pieces of crap for taking third in expert class. All I want to know is this: how did the putz below give this thing three flamers . . . . and ruin it's perfect one flamer rating. Bottom line is: this thing doesn't work now, and it never will. Just look at it. Can I give it a negative three chili's, and thus counter act the most optimistic reviewer in mtbr history??

Hey! I found one of these pieces of crap on the trail and was dumb enough to actually try it. Let's just say that I would sooner eat a flaming terd than try this thing again. My Black Lab is eating the pump as we speak. Good Boy!!

Bottom Line:   

I bought an advent frame pump with the built in pressure gauge.
I don't think the gauge was very accurate but who could tell
when you can't even get enough air in the damn tires to make
it register on a gauge anyway. If you enjoy excercising your arms in a pumping like fasion
for extended periods of time, buy an advent pump.
If on the other hand however, you want to put some air in your
tires, stay well clear of it.Best frame pump i've used is the blackburn mammoth,
cost a few dollars more but well worth it.ZERO CHILLIES

Junk, I bought a frame mounted Double action pump. you pump, it gets hot, and doesn't work anymore. Get a Blackburn Mammoth mtn. They are the first mt bike frame pump that I bought that really works.

Bottom Line:   

Total and utter junk. On no account buy this. If you already bought one throw it away. It breaks easily, it can never put enough pressure in the tire and is hard to attach it to the valve in the firstplace. This is one of the worst cycling products of any kind available.

Bottom Line:   

This thing is total junk. My wife got one free when she bought a bunch of other stuff at the LBS. I decided to try it out at home when fixing a flat. I could barely get enough pressure in the tube, when it wasn't in the tire, to find the flat. God forbide, if I actually needed to use it to pump up a tire on the trail. It's now in the garbage.

Date Reviewed: January 8, 1998

Bottom Line:   

I thought a pump is a pump. Boy was I wrong. I bought the more expensive Advent floor pump ($20), and it stunk. The presta sided valve continually slipped off my tubes, and when it was on, the tire guage was inaccurate. I had it only two days until I beat it against the ground. Do N O T waste your money on the Advent pump, or any other cheap Advent bike accessories (stems etc.). The Advent pump was a piece of junk that belonged nowhere else than in the garbage can. I now have a Cannondale floor pump and its awesome for $30.

Bottom Line:   

What a piece of crap! This thing never worked! I couldn't figure out what was wrong with it. I needed it a week after I bought it and the damn thing didn't work! And yes, I did check to see if it was set for my valve, it was. The owner of the bike shop I bought it from said it was his best and most popular pump. The guy's name was Ray, and the bike shop was called Cycle Ray's, but my friends and I called it Pcyco Gay's. He went out of business in three months.

Bottom Line:   

I think this pump kicks. The end doesn't clamp on to the valve,but it doesn't have a cap so the mud builds up in the end and acts as packing. I ended up lossing it because the holster was so hopeless.

First and worst presta pump I've used. This thing sucks so bad. I bought it for $15 thinking it was a good deal--but, like all Advent stuff--you get what you pay for

Piece of crap! Tried pumping when I got a flat and it wouldn't go over 20 pounds. I ended up borrowing pump from a friend of mine.

Date Reviewed: June 14, 1996

Bottom Line:   

What a piece of crap. The dealer claimed it was the best pump in '95, but the inflating pin is plastic, and has disintegrated over the last six months, only being used maybe twenty times. The double pump action is great, and the rest of the pump is solid, but who cares if the head doesn't do its job on the trail? Avoid this one, buy a Blackburn.

Worth building a pump track on own land?

I've got 8 acres that has about a 6 degree or so varying slope to it. I've kind of been shying away from our local single track trails due to 3 rattlesnake encounters on just the last trip out. I was toying with the idea of building the highest end of lot up with a skidsteer and building kind of a s ... Read More »

Lezyne classic dirt floor pump - replacement seals

Where could I get replacement seals for their HV floor pumps? I only see seal kits for their hand pumps and in the description it says the seals will work in both the their hand pumps and floor pumps. But when I go to the Lezyne site, my floor pump is not listed as being compatible. Tnx!!Read More »

DIY Tubeless Tire Seating Pump

So I decided to make my own sub $50 version of the Bonty Flash Pump that can be used to seat tubeless tires without the aid of a compressor. Probably will be the death of me, but I'll use it to seat tires until that point. [ATTACH=CONFIG]927236[/ATTACH] [video=youtube_share;2yzPq3ksFDU]http ... Read More »

High pressure pump?

Hey all. A bit of a lowbrow question for this thread, but here goes: I run tubes with high pressure to avoid pinch flats, and haven't had one for years. Today I got a nail early on, and upon replacing the tube the hand pump wasn't able to crank the pressure up like the two handed pump at home. Lo ... Read More »
