One of the most basic maintenance tools for your bike is a pump. However, there are many different designs. From portable mini pumps to floor-standing workshop pumps, it’s important to make sure you’re buying the right one. It largely depends on whether you want to carry a bike pump around with you. Serious cyclists who ride several times a week may want to consider a track pump for the garage. When buying a new bike pump, check its valve compatibility. Some pumps will accommodate both Schrader and Presta valves, but others will be specific to one or the other. You should also decide whether you require a high-volume pump.
