I've been pretty happy w/ the JoeBlow, but A) they don't seem to make that exact PX model anymore; B) it just stopped working for no apparent reason after only 2 years, so maybe I'm not so hot on getting another JoeBlow if that's their lifespan; C) just wanted to see if there's anything else out there I should be looking at. (Saw a Planet Bike Ozone ST in the LBS & thought it had potential, but didn't get a chance to try it out.)

Anyone have a recommendation? Thanks.

Joe Blow blew himself up too many times for me (edit)

Their customer service is very good but really, how many times can one keep exchanging things before getting disgusted?

After 3 pumps and 5 or 6 different pump heads failed I bought a Park. It works ok but it's too soon to say if it'll last.

(Yeah, that one. Thanks for posting the pic David.)

Park Professional

"My Topeak Joe Blow also stopped working suddenly a few years ago.

Since, I've been very happy with the Park Professional, the PFP-2 model.

Excellent chuck, accurate and easy to read gauge.

And when it felt a bit sticky, just a touch of lube on the pump shaft and all was (is) well.

I have this pump for sale (see above)

If you want this pump (the Park Professional), which I think retails for $60, I will sell it to you for $30. It's practically new. It's just sitting in my apartment and I don't use it. I use the Joe Blow Turbo and like it a little more. Contact me offline if you are interested.

Stick With Topeak

I've had a Topeak Joe Blow Pro for 2-3 years, I love it, never had any problems at all. I also have a Topeak Road Morph and was very happy with it but it needed a replacement part and they sent it out for free. Without going into all the details (which are slightly embarrassing to me), they went above and beyond the call of duty. They really stand behind their products and have *excellent* customer service. The customer service alone is reason enough to stay with them in my opinion, but their products are also excellent.

I just purchased a specialized floor pump for about $50. Seems to work very well. Looks remarkably similar to the Park pump with a different floor flange.

You're all crazy. I've had a Joe Blow for many years, and have replaced the head and the gauge. Both parts were free, and required very little time on my part to install. Why spend money if you don't have to?

It goes way beyond that

Who wants to keep sending the broken pumps back? Twice was two times too many. Big PITA.

I have used a Wrench Force pump for the last 4 years. It has been very reliable.

Blackburn TP4 working fine

And a cheap Park I got for work also good.

[Was tired of co-workers borrowing and changing valve settings on my Road Morph)

Zéfal Double Shot: 8 strokes from empty to 120 psi. 19 yrs. old.

I don't know if the Zéfal Double Shot is even available any longer. Mine is c. nineteen years old. Number of repairs and parts replacements in all that time: 0.

It has a big, fat barrel which means it has a huge capacity: it pumps gobs of air on every stroke; moreover, it pumps the air on every up- as well as down stroke.

(My frame pump is also an aged Zéfal Double Shot that also has needed no repairs or parts replacement in surely fifteen years and also pushes air on every up- and well as downstroke. No road pump is faster. Alas, this pump is no longer made. It is a full size pump but weighs negligibly more, IF any more, than the mini-pumps.)

Zefal at the practical end, Silca at the aesthetic end, everything else in between.
