I wouldn't get it if I were you, a hand pump is much harder to use than a pump that sits on the floor, since you can get more leverage with a pump that sits on a floor.

Not.

It's a large bore hand pump for tyres and attaching to the frame of your bike.

Large bore compared to a shock pump :wink:

Shock bores are only about 10mm to get the high pressure needed.

Ahh i bought that one similar to that before.
It failed horribly. I suggest getting a car tire pump, mine can go up to 120 psi.

EDIT: I bought mine at walmart
