Lezyne track pumps: Differences between models?

Hi

I'm looking at getting a Lezyne track pump as I like the idea of the screw on adaptor but I can't decide which one.

I intend to leave it in my garage & use it to pump my road bike tyres to about 8bar (120psi), so I've no need for light weight or super high pressures but I would be happy to pay more if I was getting better quality components.

So really, what I'm wondering is:

- Are the 15bar (220psi) pumps better quality/more accurate than the 11bar (160psi) ones?

- Is the Classic floor drive better quality than the Steel floor drive or is it just lighter?


TIA

Darren

    tbh on a track pump i'd go for something with a clamp-on head

    i have an old school rennkompressor with their 'eva' head, never had a problem with it clamping to valves, even where there's only a few mm poking out when starting to pump on a deep rim

    btw on the road i carry a lezyne mini pump, that's where i prefer a screw-on type with a short hose
    my bike - faster than god's and twice as shiny
  • I bought the steel floor drive, as I couldn't see the benefit of paying for increasing reduction in weight (aluminium floorplate, then body). I figured the steel one would be the most dent resistant.

    This is what I was thinking; for garage use the steel seems to make the most sense. I'm not really sure what benefit the others give unless you need the higher pressures?
  • I can put 150 psi into the fortezza tricomps on cosmic carbone rims. I cannot imagine needing anything more than that on clinchers. I fact I doubt I would put more than that into tubs for road use, the ridiculous state of UK roads are mostly too rough to warrant it.
