Lezyne Road Drive Pump

Postby The Mechanic » Mon Sep 30, 2013 17:43 pm

I have one of these. However, I have tried to screw it on to Specialized, Continental, Bontrager and Schwalbe presta valves and I cannot get it to screw on any of them. Am I doing something wrong?
I have only two things to say to that; Bo***cks

The hose is double ended presta/schrader you are using the correct end I take it?

The new road drives have a double presta hose, one end is a screw fit, the other is a push fit which is handy for Continental tubes which tend to unscrew the valve cores when removing the hose. You don't screw this end on it slips over the valve but isn't that secure

be careful not to lose the tiny o-rings at the tip of the hose. They tend to expand by the heat generated by the pumping and get loose. at least mine did.
