    Out on a ride today, I had puncture for the first time this winter. No problem, wheel off, tube out, quick check inside the tyre, new tube in. Try to inflate - pump (topeak mountain morph) just goes up an down without actually pumping :smile:

    Short walk to a farm and managed to borrow a pump :biggrin:

    Trip to the lbs tomorrow then.

    You know I never check the pumps I carry on the bike <Makes mental not to blow some tyres up with them and see if they work>

    Old MacDonald had a pump, e-i-e-i-o.

    Get a TopPeak pocket rocket master blaster. I think it is very good.

    I thought my ToppPeak Mountain Morph was good - until I had to use it in anger!
