...is needing to go to town 6 miles away, having no car, take a bike.

Which one of the four still here?

NONE.

Addict, flat back, plus too big but I could sort that, just lower the seat and lean like hell.(and take pedals off the speedster)
Giant Defy, low tyre pressure, too low.
Scott Speedster, rear wheel fecked.
Giant MTB, hasn't been used for a while, low tyre pressure. Too low.

Has ANYONE got a pump? Because I bloody well don't.

Irony? Yeah, I'm the buyer for a rather large bike business.

    If you don't have a pump at home does that mean you go to the LBS everytime you need to give the tyres a little inflation? Bet they love that!

    No, I'm the buyer for the LBS hence the irony! All the pumps have migrated somewhat west of here.

    How can you have bikes and not have a pump of some description?

    Take the MTB down to the local garage and use their car tyre pump - the valves should be the same. Be careful that you don't overinflate it and it blows up in your face.

    Local garage is a fair walk as well. Out in the sticks here!

    At least there are 3 pubs in the village and I'm off to hit one of them now!

    Love n hugs, (and no sense later)

    Thats beyond being tight, tight is not getting your round in. Not having a pump is being a bit silly :lol:

    I have 4 pumps, one from the pound shop which isn't that bad, one my gran smoked herself to death for to buy with coupons, a Blackburn stand pump and tiny piece of censored called a Pocket Bullet. I've always said there's nothing better than a damn good pump!

    Call a cab and go buy one or mail order one in if you are that lazy. ;)

    I'm sure you will all breathe a sigh of relief (not) to know that I finally have the correct pressure required.

    Did I buy a pump? NO did I feckers like, way too tight for that.

    Thanks go to TheAddict for rescuing a damsel in distress.
