Don't laugh :D but my dog has eaten my track pump :lol: :lol:
Several large holes in the steel tube :shock: mean its now unusable.
There are many cheap track pumps available but which are the good ones and which are rubbish?
Any ideas?

How cheap is cheap?

Lezyne steel floor drive, better than either of my Specialized ones.

I won one at the Big Dog. Brilliant pump but alas the GF has claimed it as her own :(

I've had one of these for about 4 years with no problems.

For the cheap and cheerful option there is the Bontrager Charger.

I've been using mine for about a year now and does the job just fine. Even had it rolling around in the boot for a while when i had a slow puncture on the car. :D

We use joe blows at work and theyre much better than the own branded ones. Fully rebuildable too i think.

My mate got one from rutland cycling on ebay for about £13 i think. Says its pretty good and he is doing large volume dh tyres.

Pedros domestique - best pump out there for the money and with lifetime guarantee.

Lezyne are nice too though - they just don't do any cheap ones.
