Replacement pump attachment nozzle/thingy

Postby Bokdrol » Sat Sep 21, 2013 16:16 pm

Hallo members

Need to replace the nozzle attachment thingy on my track pump. Any suggestions on a quality replacement - link appreciated.
Looks like this and I need one to fit both types of valves.

Thank you members.

What model is your track pump? It might be worth getting a good quality new one.

Road - Dolan Preffisio
MTB - On-One Inbred

I have no idea what's going on here.

I changed the nozzle on my SKS easily enough which was cheaper than replacing the whole unit. I think if there are spares available and the rest of the pump is in OK condition then get a spare part.

If you can't get the same head then you can get the Joe Blow heads by Topeak that can be fit as an aftermarket item. They are really good.

If you want the best - and I mean the best, then a Hirame adaptor will last forever (not cheap though, and only for Presta valves):

a replacement hose and head for a Leyzne pump works well on most other pumps. the head is reversible
Recipe: shave legs sparingly, rub in embrocation and drizzle with freshly squeezed baby oil.

Thanks for the replies.

Pump is still in excellent condition and it is only the head that is not sealing. The Joe Blow replacement is in my budget range.

Thanks to all.

I got the Topeak TwinHead upgrade kit which is a hose + head with a selection of fittings. It grips onto these Mavic Presta valves that the old one couldn't cope with.

Chain Reaction Cycles, £8 - you get the head and a new hose. I've had a couple - very good quality, cheap,. last for ages.

If you don't want to fit the hose just take off the head and attach to existing pump.

This is only a joke by the way, I am in no way implying directly or otherwise that there is any kind of link or similarity between BR and North Korea :)
