About Planet Bike
Planet Bike was founded in 1996 in Madison, Wisconsin. In many ways, Planet Bike began as a social experiment that dedicated itself to doing business in a different way. Instead of being just another company that develops and sells products with profit as its end goal, Planet Bike wanted to help bring about positive change for people, their communities, and the environment. Despite being a simple machine, the bicycle has great potential to help improve the world and the lives of the people in it. Planet Bike embraces an alternative corporate purpose, which seeks to help get more people on bicycles by making communities friendlier places for the self-propelled by donating 25% of company profits to causes that promote and facilitate bicycle usage.

Social experiments aside, Planet Bike was born from the heart of a cyclist, and its goal is to make innovative, high quality, practical bicycle accessories. The company's advancements include a four-line computer which is now a standard in the industry, and the first self-contained HID light. While still a small company, Planet Bike continues to evolve and improve its product line with the goal of always striving to build accessories that make it easier for people to ride their bikes.

This pump is as pictured, NOT as the "Product Features" list it. It does not have an Ergo T-handle with kraton padding nor the mounting options mentioned nor the pump peg hole in the handle.

It is a 400 psi pump with unnumbered 10 psi tic marks on the gauge and numbered tic marks every 50 psi (1 Bar increment tic marks included up to 28 bar).

The Product Features list should read as it does on the packaging:
* No air leak valve release system
* Swivel hose and pump head for easy attachment
* Alloy barrel for smooth pumping action
* Easy-Read industrial class gauge rated to 400 psi
* Bleeder Valve for Fine-Tuning pressure

After using this product I would say that it works great; more so for its intended purpose of shock inflation than for tire inflation. It pumps up shocks with very little effort and the bleed valve helps to dial in exactly how much pressure you want. Granted, touching the bleed valve will dump 50 psi in an instant.

Using it on tires with both Presta and Schrader valves is also possible, although inflating a completely flat tire might take a while, since this is a small pump. As mentioned in a previous review, Presta valves can be inflated by removing the "No Leak Valve" from the "Pump Head" and removing the metallic piece from inside, then reassembling the valve to the head.

***Pressure readings below approximately 30 psi are not available.

As soon as I recieved the product, I tore it out of the package and put it to work on my bicycle suspension. Was relatively easy to pump until around the 250 psi range (which is above recommended for my suspension system anyways). For what I paid for, I give this product two thumbs up. I haven't tried applying it to tires so I can't make any comment on that.

This shock pump does everything I would expect. It seals well with the shock and does not bleed off a significant amount of air when being disconnected. All-in-all, it gets the job done. The price of this item is favorible to that of that of this items' competitors that offer similar performance.

I use this pump for both Shraeder and Presta valves. To use it for pumping presta valves, simply unscrew the metal piece off and remove the inner metallic piece using anything thin. then you're set. this is probably one of the only decent hand pumps out there with a gauge. highly recommend!

While I had no problem adding air, I couldn't avoid losing 10 psi each time I disconnected. I'm sure this is because I was unable to use the connecting valve as it was intended, because there was no independent movement between the two sections of the brass nozzle. The nozzle is scored, so it looks like you should be able to screw the bottom portion onto the valve first, and then screw the top portion to engage the air release mechanism. I couldn't get the two portions to spin independently of each other. So mine was probably just a dud, but that goes to tell you something about the quality; I'm not going to bother trying another one.

Another big problem, and also a red flag to me when even considering an exchange, was the bleed valve. This feature should have a really subtle effect; it's for fine-tuning. After all, each pump only adds a few psi at a time, so it's not like it's easy to lose track of time and add a couple hundred (or even ten) psi over what you intended. One quick press of "bleed" button wastes 40 psi at a time. I was able to overome this by gently depressing just the corner of the button, but this problem just convinced me that this pump was probably made by people who don't understand the actual ins and outs of a shock pump; overall, the pump just struck me as a kid's toy: it might look similar to the real thing, but in actual use you find that appearance was as far as the design went; it's functionally pretty useless.

I see that there are mostly positive reviews for this pump, and like I already said, I chalk this up to mine being a dud- but a dud so bad that I won't bother trying an exchange.

Bought this pump a couple of weeks ago. It is my first shock pump and I was skeptical of the no bleed feature having never seen or used one before. It works exactly as they said it would. No air bleeds from the shock as you unscrew the pump from it.

As you do remove the pump from the shock, if you get your ear as close to the valve as possible, you can hear a slight pffft as the valve is unscrewed but if you do screw it back on you can see from the gauge that the pressure in the shock is the same as before you started to removed the pump. Seems to indicate the no bleed feature works and the only thing I can conclude from the other reviews that say there is a bleed of air as the pump is removed is that they are somehow incorrectly attaching and removing the pump. It may be that they have inadvertently removed the no-bleed valve as it can be unscrewed from the pump.

The one thing I had a little trouble with was the bleed button on the pump itself. Being left handed I hold the pump a little different than 75 percent of the population and it took me a minute or two to adjust the way I hold it so as to not accidentally touch that button and cause a bleed. So it goes, my fault for being left handed . . .
