Strengths:    Well designed, solid durable construction. Reversible presta/schraeder, quick release valve fitting. Dual psi/bar scale with target pressure indicator. Rapid, effortless inflation even at highest pressures

Weaknesses:    None except that it's such a well-designed, efficient pump you really don't have enough time to enjoy pumping up your tires when things are so effortless

Bottom Line:   
It does what it's supposed to do without a flaw. Any negative comments you might see for this pump appear to be posted by mechanically challenged individuals who apparently are unaware of the difference between a presta and schraeder tire valve.

disappointed with this product. My pump has very little mileage on it, yet all of a sudden, I cannot get it to pump air into tires with Presta valves.

Bottom Line:   
Look, I can't help it if people don't know how to use a pump, but I thought it was fairly obvious. I looked at the head, ,said "oh, that screws off to allow you to change it for schrader threads" and it did. I did what I had to so it was set up for my schrader, put it back together and finished but hitting my presta's. Its not complex, there's a part that is removable when using it on the schrader. Its super easy to use, inflates fast as heck, gets the job done and has removable changeable parts. buy, like, three so you can have one at the house, one in the shop area, and one in the car...

Strengths:    Looks good. Recommended by the LBS.

Weaknesses:    Like the other reviewer, first time I tried to use it I hear a loud snap. The tip comes loose all the time. Its virtually impossible to get this thing to form a seal. I can still get my tires aired up but I have to pump them up with just a partial seal.

Also, no instructions or anything. Maybe for and experienced rider, this thing is a no brainer, and maybe if it worked it would be, but for me it wasn't.


Bottom Line:

Strengths:    Looks great, large tripod foot, soft handle.

Weaknesses:    'Switch Hitter' pump head

Bottom Line:   
I popped $60 bucks for this pile ($20 more than the 'comp' model) for the nice polished aluminum body, foot, and head.... Whelp, I can't say how it works... it doesn't.

First flip of the lever something broke, and when I pump air just blows out the back of the pump head.

I'm not amused. I could have gotten another Kmart job for $7.99 that would have worked (although I'd have to find a presta adapter) and would probably last ten years.

Specialized will be getting a call in the morning for sure!

Strengths:    Excellant volume per pump, Dosen't leak (So Far), Nice large gauge with slidable bezel for no under and over inflate's, Made of aluiminum & Steel so it looks and feels durable, Adapts to both presta and scrader valves with the same pump head. Not slip compound on base making it easy to use when in your shoes.

Weaknesses:    Plastic handle and pump head this is the only thing that looks like it would break. Thats it!

Bottom Line:   
Haven't used many floor pumps before but this one seems like it's gonna last man. I use to use jut my frame pump to put a little air in before I rode each day if needed but after losing a s!*t load of tubes to snakebites I decided it's about time I got a real pump and stopped using the crap K-mart foot pump. I got this one because I like Specialized equipment so far and the one thing I wanted was a large visable gauge and something durable. I didn't want to spend alot of money either best useed to upgrade my bike. I got what I asked for and this pump is great try one and you'll agree. PEACE.

Bottom Line:   
Well I just came back from the store (which was having a sale and they were kind enough to substitute this instead of the advertised Tpeak JoeBlow which they ran out of) with the red version of this pump in hand a couple hours ago so these are initial impressions. This pump was originally $39.99 at the LBS and compared to some of the more expensive ones which were $10-$20 more the cylinder seems to have smaller volume. On the other hand it seemed to compare rather well to other ones in the price range. I really like the steady 3 “foot” design. It seems to be more steady and the pump is not as much prone to tip over to the front. One unique feature of this particular pump, as well as newer Specialized floor pumps in general is the addition of the (and I quote from the Specialized website) "Switch-Hitter head technology uses the same head for both Schrader and Presta Valves". I don't see myself being sold on this gimmick too too much, as I don't envision needing to switch from Schrader to Presta that quickly, but it’s a nice touch if nothing more. So far I've used it to raise the pressure on my bike and everything went smoothly. Although, while trying to figure out the Switch-Hitter head I let too much air out while trying to attach it to the valve. Maybe once I get used to it some more I'll have better luck. All in all great value as I got it for 22 bucks, but overall there are probably better pumps in the $40 range, which is what this one was originally.
