      Comments:

      Have used this for 5 bikes: 3 mountain, 1road, and 1 cyclocross. Straight forward to use as the staff said it would be. Originally I wanted a more expensive Parks model but I am glad I followed the staffs recommendation. They are on sale now and I will be picking two more up as presents for friends and family who keep needing mine.

      Great Pump

      Pros

      • Connects easily

      Cons

          Comments:

          Connects easily for both Schrader and Presta valves. I saw another review that said it doesn't connect but obviously they don't understand how to use the lever on the end of the hose.

          I've had this pump for a few years now and still works just fine.I think my friend uses it more than I do. It just gets a lot of use.come to think of it,if it broke tomorrow,I'd buy another one.

          Impossible to use

          Pretty much useless, since it won't connect to the tire stem.

            Comments:

            I had an old pump with a plastic head. I was looking for a pump with a metal one. This Charger had a metal one that can do Presta or Shrader(sp) and the price didn't break the bank. The guage is accurate and this pump is so easy to use and not hard on the arms. It even has a rotating dial with a red arrow to make it easy to reach your desired amount of air. The length of the hose is great too! I have been using this pump every day for the past 2 months as I make sure my tires are right where they're supposed to be. I do ride every day at least 10 miles each day. I have two bikes: one that needs 90psi and one that needs 100psi. This pump is easy for both. I would highly recommend this pump!

                        This works for me. One of the best presta valve seals I've had. I usually ride at 140+. No complaints. I've not experienced what the other reviewers describe.
