If you ever see the lidl ones on offer again grab one, got mine for a fiver ally body tube gauge and dual fitment head. Cant go wrong.

I got mine from Argos about 10 years ago, it was £20 and is still going strong. If it broke tomorrow, I'd go buy another one the same.

I've been very happy with my Topeak Joe Blow. I'm going to get one of those Lidl ones for the car though.

Hi there.

I have one of the Edinburgh Bike Co-op track pumps and it seems to do the job. Wait until they have a sale and they are usually reasonably priced.

I use a Lezyne Steel Floor Drive trackpump, been fine the last couple of years :)
Guage is good, and it's quite simple to change between presta/schraeder valves.
