Posh surnames and shotguns aren’t the only things with double barrels – Topeak’s top-of-the-range Joe Blow Ace track pump has them as well.
And it’s no gimmick: both barrels are in play up to 60psi, the main barrel takes over up to 120psi with the smaller barrel alone taking care of pressures up to 260psi – all instantly controlled by a handle-mounted switch.
The figures on the floor-level gauge could be a tad clearer, but the Joe Blow Ace scores top marks for speed and ease of pump action (more shotguns…), excellent marks for construction quality and good marks for stability.
