How much work is it to replace the gauge on the base? I'd love to find a gauge that will be more accurate - (ie: show 52 pounds instead of "somewhere between 40 and 60")

Glad you mentioned the long hose, as I forgot to. I means I can use it while the bike is on the stand. A great plus in my book.

I've lusted over the Lezyne pumps for a while, didn't realize they were this low in price. Thanks for the heads up, I just purchased one.

My Park PFP-8 floor pump doesn't seem to be a popular one, but it has served me well enough for a long time. This version looks different than mine, the gauge is in a different location.

I've had my Topeak Joe Blow Race for a long time (10+ years?) with no issues. Long hose, schrader and presta, accurate gauge -- great pump.

The pump base is a lump of cast iron and is very easy to drill and tap, you will need a 7/16" drill bit and a 1/4-18 tapered pipe tap. after tapping the gage port will accept any standard 1/4" NPT gage, the maximum gage diameter is 2 1/2" nominal.



To properly fit the 300 psi industrial air hose I had to tap the base to 1/8" NPT and use a 1/8 NPT to 1/4" hose barb fitting (1/8 - 27 tapered pipe tap, 21/64" drill), all hose clamps are Ottinger.




The rest of the fittings are 300 psi rated quick release air hose fittings, I don't remember where I got the bleed valve.




The gauges came from McMaster-Carr

Back in 2015 when I resumed cycling after a long break, some magazine reviews listed the Nashbar Earl Grey floor pump as a best buy in a bargain pump, and the Lezyne Steel Drive as a best buy at any price.

I was scraping pennies together that year so I got the Nashbar pump when it dropped to $20. The Lezyne was around $50-$60. The Earl Grey has been a very good pump, a bit easier to pump high pressure tires than some floor pumps. It seems to have a narrow, long column for low volume, high pressure. My only beef has ever been the pivot lever chuck locking doodad, but I've gotten used to it. It hasn't bothered me enough to replace it. But I prefer threaded chucks -- all my mini pumps have 'em.

If I was to buy another floor pump now it'd be a Lezyne, probably the Steel Drive.

Thanks, Spaghetti Legs. I checked their website after posting, and their pumps do have a limited lifetime warranty, but Iíll have to register it. On my to-do list. Mine is an Air Tower 2.

I bought it with birthday $$, but canít recall what year! 2017 most likely.

I use a Specialized floor pump, which I've had for 12 or 13 years. Worked great for wheelchairs and bicycles alike. Reliable thus far. I've been happy with it.

For the longest time I went without a pump. Iíd fill up at whatever LBS was closet. So I was using a variety of pumps. Some of them didnít perform too well. But the Topeak Joe Blow at one particular shop always worked like a champ.

I eventually picked one up off Craigslist. It had seen a lot of use before I got it, and itís still performed without issues in the two years Iíve had it. Iíd buy one new if I ever had to replace this one.

Thanks for all the replies. Ordered the Lezyne. $50 with tax and shipping. Meanwhile I’ll pursue the Blackburn warranty.

FWIW- we also had a Planet Bike pump (with the "love handle" LOL). That was a nice pump- but I sent it up to our son when he got bikes for him and his wife. Which, of course, freed me up to get the SKS Rennkompressor and then the Leszyne.

Again FWIW- I had problems with the stock SKS head, I decided to return it and then ordered the Leszyne- but I contacted SKS and they sent me a new head. I've just preferred the SKS and I'm very appreciative of their customer service.

Nice mods. Thanks for sharing. The stock SKS gauge is indeed a little hard to read, which is my only gripe, and biased towards high pressure road/track tires. I have to go by atmospheres rather than PSI, which are written in small gray letters on black. Maybe they're nagging a bit, "You will not go by archaic dumb measurement!" I'll keep this idea in mind for the future.

Yet, the SKS with a Kuwahara head is by far the best floor pump I've ever used, and I've used a lot. Just a joy. For you other Rennkompressor fans out there, it is worth it. The stock SKS head isn't terrible, but the Kuwahara Yoko head upgrade with the SKS pump is just an awesome combination.

Agreed. I swapped out the stock head for this one last year. It's soooooo much better than the original. Never a hint of the problem.

Thanks for the tips, @mechanicmatt! Where are the two o seals on the Blackburn? And do you need to buy new o seals from Blackburn or do they come with the hose and head assembly you mentioned above? I ask because I tried repairing that Blackburn model with a Silca hose and head and couldnít get the Blackburn pump to push air through. I must have missed replacing an o ring seal or two. (I bought a Lezyne, which is great except the threaded head is not quick and can unscrew loose valves). Iíd love to get the Blackburn working again.
Thanks.

I will look at what I have but basically there is a plastic collar at the top of the pump that gets unscrewed with a little bolt and then you can take out the pump plunger (what the handle is attached too and the plunger will have two o-rings around the lip of it. My guess is that is okay and you may just need to lube the inner diameter of the pump shaft so it can reseal. Any light oil should do the trick. I won't have time for a couple of days, but reply back here and when I get back to the house I'll disassemble and take pics. Is your pump similar to mine?
