87 psi I'd fine for a mountain bike but not much use for a road bike.

Original Poster

Got one last time the had them on offer for my road bike, I've been inflating my tyres to 116psi, which I think the instruction say is the max pressure. You're right however that they also state a max normal pressure of 87psi.


I have once gone right to the top of the dial trying to clear a valve on someones bike that had glued up with that green stuff that seals leaks.

EDIT: Since posting I noticed mine's an older/different model, hotukdeals.com/dea…965

I have one of these and use for road/hybrid/mountain bikes.

Of all the Lidl cycle kit this is, IMO, the best quality.

The Spoke reflectors are well worth having too - lidl.co.uk/cps…htm?action=showDetail&id=5330&ar=2

Spoke reflectors here for only £4.49 with free delivery ( not default delivery option) bought from seller before they are good price considering its delivered:
ebay.co.uk/itm…555

Bought one of these Crivit branded ones a couple of years ago. Initially i was very happy with it...
But The nozzle/head breaks... Sometimes very early on from what I've read online... (including the threads on HUKD)
Mine broke after 18 months or so ... Only very occasional use for my bike and AirZound...
Wouldn't buy again... unless the design of the nozzle (that broke away, so it is now useless, and still looks like new!) has drastically changed. Would rather spend a bit more for a decent one.

Has anyone used one of these pumps with an airbed? I had no trouble pumping up bicycle tyres, fitting the valve head into the smaller of the two holes in the clamp, but when using either of the plastic nozzles in the larger hole of the clamp all the pumped air escapes from the smaller hole. I've even resorted to reading the instructions, but can't see that I'm doing anything wrong. Any ideas, anyone?

Cheers, don't need a pump but need a new helmet and some lights

I've had the crivit floor pump for over year and a half and still going strong. This looks like newer model but I use it on my road bike for 100+ psi. Sure can do more.

Im thinking of getting some reflectors for night riding which I've not done this year. Are they easy to put on and take off? Do they stay in place and not make noise as the wheel spins?

I have one of these, they are exactly the same as the £29.99 one in Halfords (currently £19.99)

I bought one of these time before last, think it was a bit more expensive at the time (maybe £7?). Anyway, it came with a 3 year guarantee but not thinking I binned the receipt. It broke the 3rd time I used it. I bought a Joe Blow pump on offer from halfords which cost a lot more (£25-30 I think) and I've used this a lot over the last while, still no problems.

Moral - if you do buy this make sure you keep the receipt!

Writing / Calling to their customer services, if anything like Aldi, can get your draft receipt printed if you know where, when and roughly what time / items you've bought and paid in cash/card. I did that with Aldi with my shoes failed and took them 2 mins to trace my missing receipt. I'm assuming Lidl will have the same level of service - or shame on them if they don't.

They dont, as i contacted them.. and they basically said all i need to do is take the item in with my receipt, which i didnt have, and had explained in the e-mail to them as i was told to contact their customer services.
From their reply, it was obvious they hadnt really read my enquiry explaining that i couldnt find the receipt but i had pictures of it i had sent them etc... and they said i would need the receipt so they could identify the stock number (hence why i had sent them photo's of it) and with the rough time of when it was out (from a HUK thread, with further photos)searched high and low, probably never thought i'd need ot to be honest.

nice deal

It is a nice looking track pump but the low pressure is a bit odd. I guess the materials are mostly thin plastic with a super thin later of metal foil or something.

bought one last time. On the up stroke it sucked out all the air I'd pumped in on the down stroke. and the 3rd time I tried to use it the handle came off. luckily lidl are very good with no quibble returns.

I picked up an Airwave metal barrelled track pump from CRC for less than 20 quid, which On One sell with the rather naff Phaart brand name for about 17 quid. lidl/crivit is hit and miss- their cycle computer was absolute junk too but I've been using the heart rate monitor regularly for 18 months.

no its not. the halfords one pictured in the link has a different connector (shrader and presta opposite each other not stacked) and handle, in fact the halfords one looks like the CRC/On One I mentioned earlier (also has a metal barrel, not sure lidl does).

I bought one of these yesterday, last one in Mold was £5.99. Looks like a decent bit of kit for the price.

I bought one months a go and its terrible. Not worth the its weight in cheap plastic!

thanks op will have a look

yeah, no good for road tyres.

thats probably exactly what its worth actually! can you find that much plastic for under a fiver?

Original Poster

The one I got from lidl last time they had them at this price has a steel barrel and the plunger rod is a steel tube too. Rest appears to be plastic.

It was however a slightly different model - pictured here:- lidl.co.uk/cat…jpg

They clip on fairly easily, but they are quite tight, so they can be a bit fiddly to take off. I've only removed some when my dad wanted his transferred to his new bike. They've never fallen off by themselves, but I have managed once to knock a couple off by being a bit careless when ramming my d-lock though the spokes. Not noticed any noise from them.

Only 70mm, the Lidl ones are 80mm. And you have to add £1.29 postage to your price.

Dont mind the difference in size, still very effective, actually they have larger diameter than Lidl, so total reflective area is approximately the same. There is a Free postage option on the listing. it just isnt the main option, add to basket and change postage option.

It's mainly metal so obviously you bought a different one.....

Never had any issues (so far) with Aldi or Lidl kit & I've got many of the items on offer there on the 29th. Will try to pick up the pump if its not sold out this time & will report on its performance if successful

Should be available in store today.

i notice that there is also an air-cushioned saddle - one that has its pump built in - does any one know if its any good?

Bought this track pump today. Gauge goes up to 140 psi but pressures over 85 are marked in red ? The barrel and plunger rod is steel but everything else is plastic.
Seems ok for a fiver I guess. The tyres on my hybrid are 85 psi max, but I always put 90 in em. This pump was struggling over 85 psi, although it may go over a 100 with loads of effort.
Its a lot easier using my foot pump, which is ancient brass one from the bygone days when things were made of quality, but I have to faff about using an adapter for the presta valves on my bike.

How long it will last is anyones guess.

I nearly paid £20 for a similar pump until I saw this post. I have bought it and it works fine for bikes and footballs. I haven't tried it on anything else. Hot for me.

Doesn't look too good then...... Which part of it broke ?

The downpipe come away from the foot plates. The parts are only glued together and once apart there is no pressure to pump the tyres up. Had a look at several others whilst in store this afternoon and they all look as if they were about to come apart in the same place. I noticed that the cap /cover that screws and connects the airline in to the gauge wasn't even straight on many either. Looks like they are over price by £4.89.

The two trips ended up costing me a small fortune as I ended up coming away with a new helmet for the young one and a load of turkey steaks on top of the fuel. X)

That seems pretty crap.... I had a sneaking suspicion that it wouldn't last long.
Just had a look at mine and it seems secure. Although its hard to see properly as the pump barrel is going inside a plastic sleeve that is part of the plastic feet, so I cant see how well its glued in.

Just looked at the neighbours that I picked up for them earlier and the thing is the same. Wouldn't go anywhere near 80psi and then started to leak air from the sleeve on the feet. Definitely poor quality

I bought the spoke reflectors.. they are so simple, there is nothing to go wrong. Thought they were a good buy.

Even though I only really bought it for my push bike tyres that have a Presta valve, I just tried to use the Schrader valve part of the adapter to inflate my motorcycle tyres..... loads of air leaked out the head and it wouldn't seal.
Its obviously sub standard crap and it'll be going back.
