+1 on the Silca Super Pista. Accurate gauge, very durable, and easy to get maintenance parts.hayduke1972 said:I third the Specialized pumps if you use Schrader and Presta Valves. Pumps tires up quick and my Air Tool Comp has lasted 4 years trouble free.
If you want something that will probably outlast you...a Silca Pista (best for Presta valves only) is a workhorse. Mine is over 15 years old and works perfectly...but I use the Specialized more because the Pista requires about 3X more pumps to fill a tire.
That has all been done...regularly. Remember, the Pista is smaller and pumps quite a bit less air than the Super Pista which has a much larger air barrel. I spent 8 years as a bike mechanic, the Pista was used as shop pumps all the time because of its durability. But its just not a very high volume pump.Kerry Irons said:If your Silca takes 3X more pumps to get up to pressure, then it likely needs some grease on the leather washer (inside the pump barrel) or a new leather washer. There is no reason why you should have to pump so much more with a Silca.
