Rated 1 out of 5 by Joicey New pump - doesn't work
Just bought one of these a few months ago and thought i had better inflate my tyres a bit but it only managed to deflate the tyre and no amount of twisting or adjudting could i get it to inflate more than it let out.
I have always used a foot pump to inflate my cycle tyres. When I bought my new bike it crossed my mind in the shop just get a foot pump but i thought i'd try save money with one of these.....
Ive just ordered a foot pump and I wish I had done this in the first place.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Dangerously unreliable
I've had two of these pumps (from my insurance company, not Chain Reaction) and both have failed within a year. One let me down several miles from a road in torrential rain at an altitude of 2000 metres in the Alps. Equipment failure under those conditions is potentially dangerous, but fortunately my companion had a more reliable pump from another manufacturer.
I've just bought a couple of alternative replacements from CRC. I won't be buying another Topeak pump in a hurry.

I have two bikes with different valves so purchased this pump to use as an all rounder. Unfortunately after several months the pump would not work on the presta valves. Very disappointing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous No good for presta valve tubes
Bought this pump based on reviews. Have just changed my commute bike to my 'summer' road bike that has presta valves. Whilst checking out my equipment I checked the pump's abilities with presta valves. The neck of the pump is too short; it cannot grip the valve adequately enough to be able to pump the tube properly. There is not enough depth to the neck, so have reverted back to my old specialized pump that works well enough in an emergency.

I'm surprised to see good reviews for this, maybe its been improved since I got mine a couple of years back. I found the gauge to be useless,and it takes ages to inflate a tyre, seriously frustrating all round. Mine has now stopped working completely and i'm quite pleased so I can get a good one! Wouldn't have another if they were giving them away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great allrounder, I can't even remember when I bought that pump, but I still have it (3yrs+)
Swaping valve type take about 20 sec. Inflating a 35c tyre to 60psi take about 2min.
Cool pressure gauge, that's always useful, stop guessing especially at higher pressures!
Size is average. Not any good for racing/road but fine for touring. In fact that's probably the best pump for touring/general use. I use it for bike polo but I guess it won't mean much to anyone here.

Great pump that gets a tyre inflated quickly with its dual action. It feels well made and locks on to the inner tube really tightly.
