    I need a new floor pump

    Whats good? Needs to go up to 120PSI, with an accurate gauge, and a Presta and Scrader head. No Lezyne .

    While we're at it I could use a new pump for my pack too, my Lezyne one is absolute garbage.

    I’ve been using the $100 bontrager flash TLR pump for several yrs as my all purpose pump, and it’s been solid. And when I need to seat a tubeless tire I prefer it to turning on my noisy compressor.

    ^^ And it's great exercise getting it all the way up to pressure. I have one too and use it often.

    My pump doesn't work either, I borrowed one from a friend, but I need to have my own.

    Go to a bike store and look for the pump head you like and gauge you can read. Thatís what really matters

    Topeaks floor pumps work great.

    For the pack I've been loving having a 'mini floor pump' style one, I have a filzer mini zee that's great, with a guage. Topeak and crank brothers do similar ones. If you have the space (a bit more than other mini pumps) it's worth it to be able to pump so much more easily.

    Got a Cannondale floor pump that has been good for me the last 8 years.

    The gauge is kind of small tho.

    The tricky bit that I've never found something I love is the gauge. I need to be able to go to 110PSI for my dirt bike tubeless system, but then need accuracy down in the 5 to 12 PSI range for dirt bike tire inflation. Bikes at around 30 PSI are usually not an issue, but carrying two pumps is.

    Accuracy on most floor pump guages are +/- depending on how much you spend. The more you spend the less the margin for error. I guess what I am saying here is, get a pump that moves air, and a good digital guage. I generally like Topeak for both. Thier pumps are rebuildable and if you drop a little mineral oil down the barral now and then will hold up for a long time.

    Maybe something with a digital guage would be easier. Or get a separate digital guage.

    I have one of these, and a separate digi gauge. I like this one because it's pretty much all metal - it's solid.Click image for larger version.

    these were only 25$ and they worked fine so i got 3 of them, one in shed one in house one at GF's

    MEC doesnt have them any more but i seen them relabeled under different names

    if you pump it up to 25 or 35 or wtf the guage sez its gona be the same pressure whatever that is

    you may need a pump that does tubeless< I have always just done tubeless with one of these and a several meters of 3mm cord

    My 30YO Silca still does the job to 130psi. Gauge reads close my LBS'
    On its 5th(?) seal - which are still available - but otherwise solid.

    Make sure you get one that's simple to open up, wipe down and re-lube. Otherwise you'll have a great pump for a year and then wonder why it's not so smoove forever after. It's like a fork.

    Seems this is the consensus. I thought of this at one point, but not when I posted this tread, must be getting old. Any reqs on gauges? Would be nice for the car too, so probably worth getting a nice one.

    My guage

    https://www.sks-germany.com/en/produ...?cn-reloaded=1

    No complaints about the new 'Gen 2' version. Had the older version and had problems with it and eventually got sent the new model through warranty (good on SKS customer service). See friends using topeak and schwalbe guages as well that seem good.

    Edit; I see rideit posted above linking to the older version I had, try to get the newer one I linked to, as I broke the seal for the presta side twice on that old one.

    Topeak D2. Watching World Cup videos from the pits, itís all anyone is using. Easy to find. Durable. Reliable.
