Track pump question

Postby jeannot18 » Sun Nov 04, 2012 15:28 pm

What do you think of this one?

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Beto-Aluminium- ... 29&sr=1-12

It will have to be purchased at Amazon as I have got a £10 voucher. As my current track pump's gauge don't work with my MTB tyres, (works with the road bike though), I was thinking to buy a separate gauge but when I saw the prices, I thought I may as well buy a new pump.

Don't really want to spend mega bucks. Thanks

Apart for the handle it looks like the Lidl’s one that I brought for £6.99 that’s ok for the money, why not save the voucher for something else and spend a little bit more for something better, have a look at these.

Got a couple of those lying around, one in the car and one in the house - work fine. Struggle with really high pressures so I have a chunkier one for road tyres, but also a Beto. They are like Wellgo are with pedals - make pumps for loads of other people rebranded.

I got my Beto for £7, works fine to about 40psi, after that I can't move it at all, even with all my weight on it!

Thanks guys for the feedback. The CRC's options look good. Hmmmm decision, shall I save my voucher for something else and spend another £15... Let's see what the financial manager says now

I had the tripod Beto pump... Rubbish :/ One of the legs broke within a month and even before that it struggles pumping up my Maxxis to over 30 psi...

Mu current pump can pump up 120PSI no problem, but the gauge is not working with my MTB's wheels (works fine with the Road bike). I want to make sure that if I buy a pump it is going to work ok

Gonna get the Topeak but both are meant to be very good for the price.
