It seems they are both the same model... AFAIK JSR has one of these and he is rather satisfied with it

Soit comes down to where you live (shipping :D )

when I went to a bike store/ripoff centre and got one, I noticed that many of the different brands were pumps that were obviously built in the same factory and given different stickers. Go for the one that will ship to you the fastest or the cheapest whatever your priority is between those two factors.

I just ordered a shocky, but the seller uses a third party site to manage his payments (you still use paypal, it just helps the seller out). Problem is, said site is throwing an error and won't even recognise that I'm trying to pay for something. End result is an unpaid item I just won and can't pay for. Bah... Contacted the seller, so we'll see.

I bet it'll reach you just fine. I've bought a fair few things online and this is the first major hassle I've had. Just be prepared for it vanish into the postal system for a while, sometimes shipping takes ages.

Well... At least the seller I'm buying from maintains communication... He responded and said it will be fixed by monday. We'll see...

EDIT: Finally working, paid :D

@ilovefire: I was curious if you ever received that pump from eBay... I want to buy the same one from the same seller but he has awful feedback.
