    The Topeak is a good bit of kit, have used my brothers a bit & it feels well built. The Lezyne well that just oozes quality.

    Lets hope you need the topeak for home use & not the Lezyne whilst on the ride!
    Pain hurts much less if its topped off with beating your mates to top of a climb.

    Lezyne PD has saved me several times. Just be careful not to unscrew the valve core. I find it helps to unscrew the hose from the pump first to ease the back pressure.
    Yellow is the new Black.

    Me too

    The muppet I was I was thinking the pump wasn't working as I turned the lock lever towards the Presta end and not away lol. Good bit of kit for the money I feel.

    Lezyne fits nicely with bottle cage :)

    Yeah I have the Joe Blow 1 and various Lezyne pumps, all good but I would thoroughly recommend practising with the Lezyne when you have a few minutes. In the comfort of a warm house deflate a tyre and then use the pump to get the pressure back. You may find that it takes a lot more pumps than you imagined to get a decent pressure and they can be a bit fiddly.

    Also, worth doing periodically too to make sure nothing has seized up and all is in good working order; you don't want to be finding problems at the side of the road.

    Great tip, did that yesterday after changing the tube and makes it a lot easier.
