Bike pumps are not something you normally think about much – until you need one. The fact is that every biker should have two pumps – a floor model to properly inflate your tires before each trip and a frame mount for emergencies on the road/trail. Bike pumps give you peace of mind and make an active outdoor lifestyle easier on yourself.
