Super high quality pump
Design and construction are of the highest quality. I expect this pump to last years. Was a fan of another brand but now that I've experienced Silca I won't be going back. Weight and size are slightly more than some other pumps but totally worth it for the quality. It takes me 180 strokes to pump my rear tire of my road bike and 160 for the front. The last 20-30 strokes take a bit of effort but what do you expect and the pump doesn't heat up at all. I find it best to loosely hold the pump head against the valve with my index finger while my thumb hooks around the tire itself then I can use my other hand to pump quickly having pushed the silicone sleeve out of the way first. I guess I'm sperging out a a bit on this review so bear with me I just really like the quality of this pump. And no I'm not getting paid nor have I ever met Josh I just appreciate the quality!
