Thing is though, I've been terribly upset with the total shit floor pump designs out there. And I've been quietly trolling for a decent solution for a long, long time. And today, I think I may have stumbled across the baddest mother of a pump. And I'm all manner of prematurely amped up about it.
I'd seen it before and it totally caught my eye, but the head looked like a POS because I was stupid and didn't understand what it was. The pump is a Specialized product and on my way out of Wheel Sport East after replenishing my brake and shifter cable stash, I happened to ask Mr. Grob (yep, same guy who sold me my rad pump track bike) about it. Jake doesn't eff around - when he says something, you can take it to the bank. And he told me this was a good pump. With a "smart head". Works with both types of valves.
Right. If only that were possible.
It's a $60 pump and I bought it. I wanna believe.
Well, I got the damn thing home and hooked it up to a coupla tires that were running a bit low. HOLY. LIVING. HELL. Who knew pumping up a tire could actually be fun.

|Super stable base and a mega-diameter gauge with confidence-inspiring action.|
|Best of all though, the smart head just flat works.|
Car alarms quickly sent me scurrying home.
I'm telling you though, I think this might be the real deal.
