      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!

              I've had this pump for a few months and have had no problems with it. It has worked great even though its been tossed around a little.

                  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.

                    I use this pump for my road bike. Its easy to read and works better than the 20 dollar schwinn pump i Initially bought from target. The best feature is the auto select head it abruptly swithches to what ever valve you need to use. Shrader or Presta. All in all great pump.

                          I'm going to sound like a 18 year old. Trust me, I'm 40.I purchased this pump at [...]. I took it back believing it was defective. The one I exchanged for had the same problems.It will not make a seal and the gauge is very inaccurate. Tire pumps and pressure gauges are SAFETY equipment. You simply cannot sell an unsafe product. This pump is PURE GARBAGE and it should be pulled off the shelves immediately.I am so infuriated for the 2nd time (Because I've now missed rides twice) that I considered driving through the front window of RBM with my [*]

                            Valve head began leaking on the inside after approximately 10 uses...and I am not exactly a rough user or equipment abuser. In fact, I am quite the contrary. Upon looking for new dual head valve asm to replace the leaking one, it would appear that this [*] has no replacement part available. It is plain silly to have to replace an entire [$] pump for a $3 part. I definitely do NOT recommend.
