great interview Josh and thanks for sharing some of the passion, vision and commitment to lifetime excellence that you brought to the buying and building of Silca. Like you I’m a long time cyclist and one of my early cycling purchases was an orange Silca Pista pump – which I still have and use (it’s in the back of the car). Really great.

Well, I think I’m sold. Now to start saving and asking for this pump as a gift.

I am still using the same floor pump that I have had since 1976. Used one on our Bikecentennial ride, and have never changed. Just keep rebuilding. Keep up the great work. I have changed the plastic handle to one I made from oak. Thanks for your passion.
