True, gauges with smaller ranges are 'generally' easier to read. It also depends on the quality of the printing on the gauge. I don't find that Lezyne easy to read. The gauge diameter is small as are the numbers. (My eyes hate pumps with gauges on the ground)It occurred to me after purchase that while there is a greater usable PSI range on this pump, and it should be easier to see the exact PSI, the top shelf model has a digital gauge (crickets). It should be just as easy to hit desired PSI with any other digital gauge equipped floor pump, correct?
The digital looks like it'd be much easier to read. Both say they are accurate to 0.5 psi.
Seating tires is more about volume than pressure. A high pressure low volume pump will never seat a tubeless.I enjoy paying someone else to seat TL tires and is one of the few things I go to an LBS for. 100PSI should be enough to inflate a air can to seat tires. Comments thoughts?
I can use an air tank to seat a tubeless tire with just 20-30psi.
I have one of these, modified with a valve and presta chuck. You can fill it up at a service station or a buddy with a compressor. Or use your floor pump and a bit of time. Filled to 100psi, it'll seat probably a dozen tires.
