>>1201668>>1201669>A good pump will last you decades.
these ones regulary last 25 years, I was kind of sick of seing plastic everwhere and I really needed those 7+ bars capabilites for a road bike, and why not support the Made in Germany + cast iron pump? I cant resist quality german tools.
weird thing, this pump feels like a Lada Niva not like an Alfa Romeo like new pumps - not that user friendly, not even smooth and with play in handle new (!), and not that stable feet (not a big problem due to heavy iron cast), gague close to feet for more precision, not up top so casuals can see better...but boy does it pump, just tested it out.
nothing fancy about it, not big volume, just pumps like a maniac. Totally different appraach than gimicky yuppie pumps of today, this is a 2.5kg pump that feels like a tank, not a "pump your tires with megalized in 3 strokes also check out how light it is" approach.
Its a 50th aniv edition so brass non locking presta valve only unlike pic rel version, so I might put a cheap plastic china dual head, will the gague still work that way?
