What happens when the shops are shut?Jeez, they must have money to burn at Derby... if I need good air on the fly I just find the nearest bike shop and borrow the track pump!
I have the Road Morph G and it has a little fold out stand and the handle folds out into a T Grip and I can get the tyre up to 100 psi in a couple of mins no problem.What happens when the shops are shut?
We have a couple on the Busway in Cambs - they are great when you've changed a tube and want to get full pressure again, my mini pump is great but it's bloody hard work getting back to 100 psi!
There's a couple at each end of my (current) commute.Are these sort of pumps necessary ?
I check my tyres before I set off and I also have a pump on the bike, If you found yourself in need of a pump then you would probably have a puncture and if you don't carry a pump why would you be carrying a repair outfit or a spare tube so who are they for.
It's because it's bikes, and because people are idiots.I can't understand the objection to this expenditure when Derby Council offers free car parking to the private motorist. The cost to the Council of providing just one free parking space will soon exceed the cost of three cycle tyre pumps.
I see in the press report a Derby local claims track pumps are available for £1 in Derby, get along down there folks!
