Lightbulb Track Pump

Looking for a good track pump to just add a little bit of air to my tires while at the track. I looked into it some online and didn't really find a go to pump to use. Revzilla has this one which isn't too expensive. What ya think?\

Why not just buy one at Academy. Works fine for me. Under 20 bucks.

One of my friends uses one of those Joe Blow ones, which is nice, but this is the one I use. Works great, and for about 6 bucks? Can't be beat. No complaints.

This is why I wasn't gonna get a cheap one I figured it wouldn't last under a decent amount of pressure. If y'all think a 6 dollar one will work fine then I am game to give it a go.

do you have an air compressor at the house. If you do just get a portable tank and fill it before tdays. or stop and fill it at a gas station.

I use a bicycle pump made for road bike tires, 110 psi. It's a lot easier to use than a normal pump.

I don't know about a $6 one but remember that a lot of bicycle tires work with higher pressures than we run on bikes. There's more volume there, but actually the same or lower pressure. Shouldn't hurt a bicycle pump at all.

I keep a compressor in the truck regardless, but you may never need one if you...

Intentionally set pressures a little too high the night before the td.

Lower to the proper pressure before your first session.

As the day wears on, the ambient temp (almost always) goes up, and you just keep letting a bit of pressure out.

True, unless of course you're at the track 2 days in a row.

Cornerjunkie, I've heard pretty positive things about that cordless pump. Pretty neat.
