Yesterday, I had a worst case pump failure while riding the Franconia Notch Bike Trail. I noticed my rear tire seemed low. I had checked it before the start of the ride but things happen. When I put the pump nozzle on my tire, air started rapidly flowing out of the tire, the pressure relief button on the Air Revolution pump was stuck in the open position. I was not able to get the relief valve to close. So, I was stuck on the trail with a very low tire and a pump that will only let more air out of my tire.
I know I have raved about this pump in the past but this is a totally unacceptable failure. I bought the pump in the Spring and have used it less than 10 times.
