Model/Year: 2015

Pros: Does its job well. Stores easily. Presta and Schraeder valves make it easy to also use on household items, like wheelbarrow tires, etc.

Cons: Minor complaint -- measurement dial effective for most tires, but the scale makes it necessary to have a separate gauge for fat bike tires.

Recommendation: Great value. Buy it.

Model/Year: 2012

Pros: The big air volume really fills the tire fast, and the big gauge makes it easy to dial the right psi. Durable.

Cons: none. Well, maybe the fact that the gauge doesn't go high enough for my wife's road bike, but this is a very minor complaint.

Recommendation: After two seasons this pump is still going strong - way better than my two previous pumps. Every bit of the construction is sturdy. I haven't found a weak spot yet.

Model/Year: 2012

Pros: Large volume, quality build, comes with fittings n stuff.

Cons: The head lever is something to get used to, I am not a fan of it's design.

Recommendation: Very good pump, I've had it since June 2012. I've not had any problems seating tubeless tires with it either on Arch EX Rims. Great pump.

July 19, 2011
Pros: Stable and stands well, pumps efficiently and quickly, easy tube holders, easy to read gauge, dual heads for presta/schrader, seals tight, inexpensive.

Cons: I haven't found anything yet.

Recommendation: This pump doesn't seem to have any real problems, it puts air in your tire. I suppose there are some pumps that don't to that so well. This one does. If you would rather pay $50 more for the same thing, knock yourself out.

Pros: Fast pump

Dual heads

Good price

Cons: None to speak of

Recommendation: It does what a pump should do but it does it faster. If your arms are weak you may not like it because you have to push harder. For me it is the best pump I have owned

January 29, 2011
Pros: The pump works well and gets to high pressures I require for my road bike as well as my mountain bike.

Cons: Unfortunately the gauge on mine is way off and I had to purchase a separate gauge to get anything close to the correct pressure.

Recommendation: Generally I like the pump and it pumps well. It's a bit large and bulky. Look at the pros and cons.

December 10, 2010
Pros: Cheap and still going strong. Easily rebuild-able with basic o-rings and large volume. Gauge is fairly accurate.

Recommendation: Easy to use and very stable. Easily seats beads even with tubeless tires.

December 7, 2010
Pros: Solid construction.
Wide base plate for good stability.
Large volume pump great for inflating tires fast.
Works on UST tires.
An actual accurate gauge

Cons: none.

Recommendation: A terrific pumo for us mountain bikers. Finally a pump that will inflate UST Tires without breaking your back. The solid feel to the Joeblow is great and welcomed.. I love the accuracy of the gauge as well. The two way valve is an added bonus. Now I don't have to hunt down an adapter if I am using a presta tube.
