nice one


nice find

Bargain!!

Hot from me.

this is useless

I had bought one like this, very good brand, from Amazon for £5. Never used it as these small ones do not work. Not even in emergencies. They are rubbish and waste of money. Buy a floor standing one. It will take space but will work at once.

It's the future... I see... a broken bike pump at the side of the road.

You get what you pay for

This is rubbish. The one I was looking at in the shop broke while I was checking if it worked!

I got a similar one from Decathlon for £4 which is much better quality. Aldi are doing a track pump for a fiver from Thursday too.

These are portable enough to attach to the bike, the attach mechanism to the tube valve is not always smooth and being small pump requires a lot of physical effort to inflate tyres. for the money just about ok

Agreed, I've got one of these and it doesn't work on presta valves. Absolutely useless. Maybe it would work ok on a normal MTB/cheapo inner tube though.

It looks to be an ideal solution for a great price, but in actual use turned out to be a waste of time, especially as after about 5 mins pumping (keep it clean!;), and the tyre still not fully inflated, all the insides just fell to bits due to being so poorly made.I now use a cheap £4 metal footpump, which came with adaptors for footballs, etc, and that's quite sturdy, and works really well, although obviously I'd like to still find a compact pump for when out and about, unfortunately this isn't it, It's a neat idea, but very poorly made, and not even worth a pound.

However, some of the other bike accessories in Poundland & 99p Stores are actually pretty good (see Op's other post), the bike covers did their job over the winter, and survived the bad weather.

I love poundland stuff generally but I've not seen these and from the sound of it they aren't fit for purpose. You don't want to be miles from home unable to fix a puncture because you can't pump up your inner tube. Better to get a old style standard bike pump with a screw on fixing to the valve. Modern pumps have quick connections using a rubber seal which often drys up and fails in a few years.

THIS PRODUCT IS NOT RECOMMENDED, IT WAS BROUGHT LAST WEEK AND IT WASNT EVEN WORTH £1!

Lad as one does work but takes a lot of effort to get any air in tyre

these things are absolutely f***ing rubbish.

Lol!

very true...get a decent pump

I bought one of these a while back and laughed at my mate for spending £15 on a 'similar' aluminium one from a bike shop. Needless to say mine never worked at all and his is still going strong. Don't bother.

I brought one of these about 6 months ago to replace the lost pump on my i-Candy pushchair, I don't expect it will last forever but it works fine.

Better still, buy a better minipump and a trackpump. A trackpump (floor stander) is a must, but it won't help you get back after fixing a flat if it's in the garage at home!

i don't think any tire related emergency is worth carrying a track pump round on your back, me and my mates all carry small pumps, just gota have a good right arm as it takes some pumping

these are useless, broke after 2 pumps (not used twice, actual in,out,in,out broke)

They don't work. Shouldn't be allowed to sell them.

Waste of money, wouldnt even pump up a bike for a 4yr old, dont bother buying!

I wish I read this post before I bought my pump.

Wastage of time, money and hope
