Top 5 Best Selling Bicycle Pumps

We tested five of the top selling bicycle pumps in five different categories that we believe make the difference, if you are deciding to buy the best bike pump for your needs: design, comfort, portability, durability and last but not least, ease of use.

1. Design

Coming in with a great score in this category is, not surprising, the Lezyne Alloy floor pump. The guys from Lezyne constantly provide a clean, modern look, a very important feature when designing their stunning products, and the Alloy isn’t any exception to this rule. It really is minimal simplicity at its very best. An anodized high-polish finish makes this pump stylish and durable. The sleek, wooden handles are uncommon and although the hose is pretty long (130 cm), it fastens directly into position in such a manner that it keeps it perfectly flush with the body of the pump, making the Lezyne Alloy Floor Drive Pump the most streamlined from the group.

bicycle pump2. Comfort

The Topeak Joe Blow Sport II scored a perfect 10 here. It has an extra long hose with 360 degree pivot and molded plastic handles, that actually made a great difference when we used it repeatedly. More challenging on the wrists and hands were the solid wood handles of the Lezynes.

bicycle pump 1Ease and comfort are also necessary when you consider a pump’s height, as we discovered with the Serfas TCPG. While the TCPG bike pump features great handles, it’s a relatively small floor pump, which meant that we were bent over more when using this model. Perfect for travel, but not as nice as the taller Pedro’s Prestige or the Joe Blow.

3. Portability

One of the lightest and smallest models that we tested was the Serfas TCPG and it was also great for travel. This bicycle pump tucks easily into cars, tents, and also in bags. In addition to its modest dimension, it is tough enough to handle all this travel. Although it is not one of the smallest or lightest, the Lezyne Sport Drive is also great for travel due to the sleek, self-contained design and style. The hose remains securely in position, and the gauge dial is actually sturdy enough in order to withstand getting tossed into a vehicle together with all your other equipment.

bicycle pump 24. Durability

Fortunately, you have many choices here in the collection that we tested, with almost all products scoring pretty well in the sturdiness and durability category. Some standouts are, once again, the Topeak Joe Blow and the Lezyne models – Alloy and Sport. All three of these bicycle pumps endured inflation after inflation, getting thrown in and out of the cars for road trips, and some minor bumps and spills. Their gauge needles continued to be accurate, the hoses flexible, and the bodies ding-free. Other top performers are the Serfas FP-200 and the Blackburn Air Tower.

bicycle pump 35. Ease of use

This was our heaviest weighted classification for testing, and includes all the aspects that may make you think positively, or better yet, not think at all, about using your bicycle pump. How easy is it to read the gauge? How stable is the base? Does it seal properly onto the tire valve? All of these aspects come in the ease of use category, and all eventually contribute to exactly how easily and quickly the pump will inflate.

bicycle pump 1The winner in this category was the Topeak Joe Blow Sport II, with the Lezyne Sport, Lezyne Alloy, Serfas TCPG, Serfas FP-200 and Pedro’s Prestige also scoring well. The Joe Blow Sport has a double head to accommodate both presta and schraeder valves, and a firm locking lever that keeps the head securely on the valve. It was rare that we didn’t get a great seal immediately. Additionally, the pressure gauge was easy to read and the base is extremely heavy and stable.

This is a short presentation on what we consider to be the most important features of a good bicycle pump. If you would like to read more bike pump reviews, please click here!

How to Find The Best Electric Bicycle Pump?

Choosing the right electric bicycle pump is important, because there is little point buying an expensive product that will get little use or choosing a less expensive model that won’t withstand heavy use. In the same way, it’s foolish to purchase a bike tire pump that requires a repeated pumping action for a person who is not able to exert the required force or energy.

bicycle pump 6You will find quite a few dedicated electric bike pumps. Most electric bicycle tire pumps available on the market are multi-purpose devices which can inflate your car, the children’s swimming pool, and other larger inflatable products that requires inflation.

Be very careful when selecting your bicycle tire pump. Some multi-purpose pumps are not suitable for the lower pressure of a bike tire. Using the incorrect type may lead to a really expensive blown out inner tube.

Valves of the bicycle inner tubes are either Presta or Schrader. Schrader are usually much more frequently used on motor bikes and vehicles, while Presta are generally found on bicycles. The best choice is to buy an electric pump that supports both, especially if you plan to use this as an multi-purpose pump not only just for your bike.

schrader valve and presta valveMake sure that your select a bike tire pump that features a pressure valve, so you’re able to maintain excellent tire pressure on your bicycle. A really practical element is a car cigarette lighter plug, so that you can take the pump while traveling and use it before you’ll set out on your cross-country route.

Review Topeak Road Morph G Bicycle Pump

Morph™ technology packs bike pump efficiency and ease of use into a compact, portable design you can bring along for the ride.

bicycle pump 8The really cool feature of this pump is that several portions are movable (morph-able), making it more convenient for emergency pumping on-the-go. The handle, which is held in place by turning the handle until it clicks into the barrel, pivots 90 degrees, allowing the user to use his/her body weight to pump when the pump is held against the floor. This is advantageous because it allows more force to be generated, less arm strength be used, and less energy be expended by the user when pumping tires. The foot pedal pivots 90 degrees from the base, allowing the user to hold the pump in place using his/her foot while pumping. After unhooking the head of the hose from the hook, the head can actually be pulled out, exposing about ~3 inches more of rubber hose, allowing the user better reach the valves on the tires. The pump head adapters can also fit both Schrader and Presta valves by flipping the two rubber/plastic adapters.

bicycle pump 9This  bicycle pump is very useful and it’s portable. Topeak Road Morph G attaches to the bike frame with the supplied flexible mounting. You can screw on the mounting, if your bike frame has that capability – or you can  mount it using the supplied other mounting hardware.

Also nice at this bike pump is the fold out foot rest and extension tube, which make for an easy pumping action. And of course, the handy little pressure gauge.
The key feature of this pump is that the pump head is connected to the main pump by a short section of rubber tubing. This lets you put the end of the pump on the ground after locking the head onto the tube valve. Then, you can use your body weight to do the pumping as with a floor pump, which is very nice. A short, plastic foot swings down so you can use your foot to keep the bottom end of the pump from slipping as you pump.
