My "workshop" pump is a cheap but good (in my opinion) Lifeline pump
- they've only got the silver one in stock at the moment at £30 but when I got mine in black, it was a fiver cheaper than the silver version. It's got a rather nice metal chuck for a pump at that price.
Interesting. Wasn't aware of that.
I trust it can be opened up if you ever need to maintain/grease it?
Can you get spare bits?
I stupidly bought a premium premium track pump from specialised for £60 or maybe more.
It developed a fault. Wandered into a spesh "concept store" or whatever they call them to ask about a spare bit. Assistant asked how long I had had it and when I said 2 years pretty much laughed at me. Expected me to just buy another. Never had a reply to my mail to spesh asking about bits either.
Sometimes the most expensive stuff isn't the best.
My current day to day track pump is from edinburgh bike co-op. It may be a giyo branded by them.
Cost £15 and is perfectly good but can't be opened up.
I'd always recommend pumps that can be.
