Should I buy Joe Blow Ultra Sport 2?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

If I were in your shoes I'd save up and get a better pump

My 7 dollar Zefal from Walmart still works well. I think I got it circa 2010. I did put a new chuck and hose on it five years ago for about another 4 dollars. It probably only gets used four to six times a week between me and my son. So if you ride more, you might need something more quality. <sarcasm>

It's not like selecting a spouse. Buy it from somewhere that accepts returns if it doesn't suit you.

I'm still using my Joe Blow after around 15 years. It's a quality pump.

I have a joeblow booster pump and love it. I use the boost about 2x/year and its a normal pump the rest of the time. Well constructed, good materials, and the pivoting hose is nice.

You can pay less and get just as good. You can pay more and get worse.

I have 2 Joe Blow Sport pumps, one at home and one at my shop. I have had them for a few years and they are both great and easy to use. I got them from REI when they have their 20% off sale. I think I ended up paying around $40 each. Great purchase and still working like new! Joe joesvintageroadbikes.wordpress

My Joe Blow is probably 18 years old now. The handle up top is starting to split and break. And my nozzle or whatever they called it had to be replaced. Several years ago. Joe Blow sent it to me for free.
