A Bent Look at Self Contained Touring

A Very Unusual Pump

with 4 comments

cyclairestep4.jpg jorge recommended I try the Cyclaire Pump. He said he had heard good things about it. Follow the link to the Cyclaire Web Site and you will see a very unusual bicycle pump. It is another Mini Foot Pump but you pump you tire by pulling what looks like a rope.

Following the links from their web site I found a Mountain Bike Review on the pump with lots of pictures of pumping tires in the mud. They were impressed with how easy and fast the pump is to use.

OK, I am a Gear Nut and have to try one. I did a little search and the best price I found was on eBay, $34.95 with case, $29.95 without case plus $4.95 shipping (cheaper and faster than buying direct from England).

When the pump arrives and I get a chance to use it a little bit, I will write a First Impressions Post.

    I have been working out a hip problem and haven’t done much for the last month. I am hoping to try it out very soon.

    That’s a great price, I’ll post it when I write up the pump.

    Enjoy The Ride …. Roland
