Pros:Price, looks, ease of pumping
Cons:flimsyness, overall cheaper feel
The Bottom Line: I would get this if I am looking to only spend $30 but I wouldnt if I wanted a solid strong pump.
This pump is not the best I've used but overall is pretty solid. I finally broke my JoeBlo which lasted for a long time then decided to switch to a different brand. It has both valve stems so thats a good thing. The pumping action is fine and the end doesnt fall off the valve. I like the fact that it is relatively inexpensive and doesnt take a lot of effort to push air into the tires. It is a good looking pump overall and for that I am happy. My last one was bright yellow (yuck). Blackburn makes other products as well that all have solid reliability. The weight is medium compared to other pumps I have owned, not too heavy, not carbon fiber or anything especially light either. If I were in the same predicament again I would probably chose the JoeBlo just because of its ease of use and felt like a more solid pump. The con for this one is it feels cheaper like it wont last me a good amount of time. I have been riding bikes for a long time and appreciate the use of a fine quality tool and this one in that respect doesnt quite live up to that standard. At this price though not a bad product. Long stems are much easier to pump up than short stems because that is when the end will pop off the pump.
