How To Choose A Bike Pump | GCN Tech Monday Maintenance

Published on August 9th 2021


Pumping up your bike tyres is simple - get a pump and get pumping, right? Well it may be that simple on the surface, but as anyone who has tried to pump their tyres up with a tiny compact pump will know, not all pumps are built equal. Track pumps are the ultimate in ease and speed but you wouldn't want to carry one around with you on a ride, micro pumps are great for sticking in your pocket but when it comes to actually using them, you could be there for hours! Alex takes us through a few different types of pump, highlighting the benefits and drawbacks of each, so you can be confident next time you go to buy a bike pump that you're making the right choice for you.
