    Strengths:    Nice Pressure dial face: white, decent sized numbers on a black background.

    Weaknesses:    Broke after 5th use. The Schrader plunger in the head is weak plastic. It snapped off and parts were not available. ...no more Specialized equipment for me!

    Bottom Line:   
    Skip the high-end, costly bicycle floor pump. An $18 K-mart special (Bell or Schwinn) will last as long and do the same thing, and you won't feel ripped-off if/when it breaks.

    Strengths:    Attractive color, seems substantial, easy to read gauges, possible to use Schrader and Presta valves.


    Weaknesses:    The clamp won't come off the valve stems, so the tube ends up being ruined from tugging and pulling. Sometimes won't air up the tube!!


    Bottom Line:   
    The pump SUCKS and doesn't BLOW!!

    It has probably cost me more to replace ruined tubes than I paid for it and 90% of the time doesn't work.

    Avoid the thing like a trail of sharp rocks.

    Strengths:    Looks nice.Big beefy looking tube.Seems to pump real nice whether it's schrader or presta.Stands steady.Pumps lots of air.

    Weaknesses:    None yet. I did step on the hose lever and busted that off.That's my fault.Still,they could've used a better valve head that flips up instead of swing out to either side.I'm sure others have stepped on it.
    I'm looking for a replacement hose.There are replacement parts for the seals and check valve.


    Bottom Line:   
    It's okay. Sure sucks when you don't have a pump though.

    Strengths:    Looks beefy with it's bigass tube.

    Weaknesses:    Pump head is difficult to put on valve. Pump head is fragile. Pump head sucks. Pump is top heavy tdue to gauge location. Hose retaining clip doesn't.

    Bottom Line:   
    This pump is a steamer.....I warranteed the pump once, and the new pump worked just as poorly as the original pump. I finally asked the bike shop manager which pump he reccomended and he said the Silca, which is infinitley rebuildable. I got the Silca and have been tickled pink with it's overall badassedness. Get the Silca.

    Strengths:    Easy to read gauge. Looks Good.

    Weaknesses:    Internal valves

    Bottom Line:   
    This pump stinks. Although I've had it one year, I only got about 3 months use out of it. After a short while it failed to pump pressure greater than 50lbs. Then the valve inside failed and it works no more. Specialized...Shame on you for making this pump!

    Strengths:    Looks good,nice visible gauge,comes in yellow...

    Weaknesses:    Seals dont last,cannot pump past 40psi anymore...looses pressure...

    Bottom Line:   
    Extremely disappointed...this pump has joined my ever growing heap of cycling detritus...it worked great for the first 12 months and then began to struggle to pump to proper pressures...the biggest downer is that you cannot dismantle to change the seals or attempt a repair.It is now just a pretty exhibit serving absolutely no useful purpose... suppose I really ought to throw it in the bin but cannot yet get my head around the fact that althought it is still in pristine condition that it is actually now totally useless. Hve now bought the Topeak pump and will see how this lasts.

    Strengths:    Looks Good and has easy to read gauge.

    Weaknesses:    Will not connect to any presta valve.

    Bottom Line:   
    The pump has everything going for it but the thing will not connect to a presta valve! It has been to the LBS several times to be looked at and they mess with it every time. Then a week later the thing won't work. The hose will fill up and then blow off but I never can get any air in my tires. You figure it out! I give it two unless I can get the thing to work consistently.
