I'm looking for my first quality (non-WM) floor pump. I've searched here as well as looked at numerous reviews for the floor pumps under $40. It seems like all of them have a problem when it comes to inflating (either getting a good seal is the problem, cheap materials make inflating difficult, etc.) presta valve tires.

Can anyone recommend a quality floor pump for under $40 that works equally well with Presta and Schrader valves?

Thanks.

Serfas.

Don't spend "less than $40". Spend $45 (unless you can find a sale) on a Serfas FP-200. I use one in the shop.

I was and continue to be impressed by it, and it's value for money.

I've got no good information except that the bulk of pumps that I've used in the past have a pretty sketchy pressure gauge. You may pick up a stand alone gauge to have peace of mind. I know sometimes they are off a good bit. The ones on the pumps that is. That is just my very limited experience and I'm new so take that with a grain of salt.

My LBS had Giant brand flood pumps so I've been using the Control Tower 1 with no complaints for the last year and a half.

Control Tower 1 Floor Pump (Inflation) - Service Gear | Giant Bicycles | Canada
+1 on the Giant Control Tower.

I bought one as a newbie in 2006. Made all the newbie mistakes with it, and it it still lasted six years. I went to the dealer to see about a new head or seal kit. He said, "Quit bustin' my stuff" and handed me a new one off the shelf, later explaining that it has a lifetime warranty.
