Strengths:    This is for the Nashbar all black pump with a stirrup at the bottom to put your foot.
Longlasting, durable, lightweight, compact


Weaknesses:    Gauge lasted about 3 days......

Bottom Line:   
Bought this for a garage pump. Not really good for that, besides, the gauge blew out after about 3 days. However, tossed in by car several years ago and it has been a great car pump. More compact than most floor pumps, pumps way better than a mini pump, rugged and realiable.

So, not a good floor pump, too big as a mini pump, but for a tween pump none better.

Strengths:    Cheap.

Weaknesses:    durability.

Bottom Line:   
The pump worked for about a year. But actually come to think of it, it only worked trouble free for about 6 months. Then, the head unit wouldnt seal properly and it wouldnt allow air to be delivered to the tube. Isnt that the primary purpose of a pump? Anyway, after some fidgeting, you can get it to deliver air, but on my road bike after passing 100psi, the head pops off completely. Buy something else, unless you like buying throw away products. Im still in the market for a good floor pump.

Strengths:    Cheap, and works for a while.

Weaknesses:    Cheap, and you will end up replacing it.

Bottom Line:   
These pumps are $20 bucks and will last you for a year or 2. After this point, I have had 2 (the blue one and the sport version) they just give up and blow on you. If you like them cheap, then go for it. If this is your only source of air and you are stranded in a National Forest, then be warned!!

Date Reviewed: November 23, 2003

Strengths:    Cheap, well made, inflator clamp is very easy to use, guage is reasonably accurate

Weaknesses:    Guage is mounted near the floor so it is hard to read without bending over, feet pad is a little funny to stand on

Bottom Line:   
This review is for the aluminum silver floor pump...

This is a great pump for the money. I got it at Nashbar.com for $18 on sale. Even at twice that money I think it is a good value.

The pump is very well constructed with a solid aluminium tube and a very solid handle. I have both an MTB and a road bike, and this pump has no problem inflating my tires to 125psi. The handle is very comfortable and the inflator clamp is very easy to use. I have not experienced any of the "leaking air" problems other reviewers commented about. And the guage is accurate.

My only compaints are minor... (1) the guage is mounted on the floor where it is very hard to read (my vision is not the greatest); (2) the foot pad is not on the sides of the pump like many other pumps -- it is in the front so you have to put your feet together to stand on the feet pads (a little awkward if you are used to straddling the pump).

Date Reviewed: November 5, 2003

Strengths:    I used it for 3 years on Schrader tubes with no problems. Easy to use, filled my tires quickly. The built-in gauge was off by a bit, but with the use of a hand held tire gauge I easily calibrated the dial.

Weaknesses:    Filling presta tubes is a bit of a pain.

Bottom Line:   
It's done the job I bought it for, maybe it's not built as well as a more expensive pump, but it didn't cost as much.

When the pump head broke recently, Nashbar replaced it at no charge. I’ll probably get another 3 years from this pump. Good company, good support and a good price.

I'd buy it again if I needed another pump.

Strengths:    None

Weaknesses:    Leaked air from the beginning. It is hard to get a pressure reading. It is just plain cheap. I think I am better off with a Walmart one.

Bottom Line:   
Cheap, leaks air, not that great. Buy something else.

Strengths:    Cheap. Gauge mounted on handle.

Weaknesses:    Gauge doesn't last. Not durable. Unstable- falls over easily.

Bottom Line:   
Not worth the money. I've owned two of these, and they both had the same problems. Keep looking for a floor pump...

Strengths:    Looks cool, sport attachment, works fine for MTB tires.

Weaknesses:    The cheap blue nashbar was a little better. Hard to use on road wheels.

Bottom Line:   
I originally purchased the blue nashbar pump becuase of the reviews on this site. The pump worked good, but it was leaking air and died (probably why it is $20). Nashbar stood behind the product and offered a new one. I decided to go with the black sport version for a few extra bucks. The pump feels a little weaker and more plasticy than the blue one, but the real trouble came with pumping my road tire to 110psi. I only get about 3 inches of travel on the pump for those last 15 strokes. In addition, those last strokes make me break into a sweat cause they are so damn hard. Im not a pump expert, but there HAS to be a better pump out there for roadies.

Strengths:    Inexpensive, works great, simple dual head design, easy to read guage

Weaknesses:    Maybe the guage could be mounted higher, but that's nitpicking...

Bottom Line:   
Blue model:

Just a simple, easy to use, accurate floor pump that works well. During 3 months of use, this pump has performed flawlessly. For $20, you simply cannot beat it. Plus, it matches all of those pretty blue Park tools you have laying around.

Strengths:    Inexpensive, well-built, dual valve nozzle

Weaknesses:    None so far - maybe the blue color???

Bottom Line:   
Why spend more on another pump? This thing is great. I see no reason to pad the profits of the pump makers - buy this one! The guage is very nice with many graduation marks. No leaks, quick to get to pressure, extra long hose.

Strengths:    Inexpensive
Works good


Weaknesses:    Not the best looking pump

Bottom Line:   
This pump is a steal for $25. It may not be the trickest pump out there, but you can buy 2 or 3 of these for the price of the nicer models. It does however inflate my tires without a problem. The combo schraeder/presta head is a nice touch.
I really don't know why anyone would need anything more.

Strengths:    
Simple, cheap and it works...how about reliable?


Weaknesses:    
It cost another worker from the orient a job, he said critically! Also, it might be a little heavier than some of the other floor pumps...floor pump? Who cares?


Bottom Line:   
The bike magazines all rated this two thumbs up. I Have a compressor with an 80 gallon tank in my studio, but the Taiwanese air lines I got on discount blow out regularly. I needed a floor pump. Needless to say, I was a little aprehensive, in spite of the reviews, of buying a Taiwanese pump. So far it has peformed flawlessly. The dual valve head is the first I've seen that works...it works flawlessly. There's no leaking or slipping, Presta or Shraeder valves, and has not bent a single Presta valve stem...whoa!!! It takes only seconds to fill my MTB tires to 50 psi, and about the same time and effort to fill my road bike's to 120 psi. There is a ring with an indicator arrrow on the gauge. Set the arrow to the desired pressure, stroke the pump a few times and when the needle reaches the arrow, you're done. Knowing what I know now, I would have gladly paid more than the $25 for this pump. The magazines were spot on with their rave reviews. The more expensive European pumps have a few more bells and whistles...and I'm sure they are lighter and just great, but for $25, this pump is definitely the best bang for the buck.

high volume/low pressure floor pump

Now that I have a Moonlander, I need a high volume, low pressure floor pump. My road pump takes too long and also, when I set up tubeless it will make it easier to inflate the tires. I assume a large diameter barrel on the floor pump will be what I'm looking for. Any suggestions?Read More »
