This is a nice little lightweight pump. Like most mini-portable pumps, don't expect it to be able to pump tires to 80 psi. It'll just give you enough pressure to get home and no more. My tests at home demonstrated I can pump it about 60 psi before I got all tired out. If you bend the lock lever 135 degrees (not 90 degrees), the seal between the valve and the pump is quite good, even to 100 psi. However, when I pumped my tire to 100 psi using a hand pump, and tried to top it off with this pump, I could not push any more pressure into the tire.. Using this pump makes you appreciate a floor pump! It does not have a 2 way stroke action. But since you need to brace against something strong, the push-only action is actually beneficial. I recommend you practice pumping at home because your state-of-mind would be quite different somewhere on a road far from home. I found a good stable position is to lay the wheel on the ground and use my multi-tool to shim the head. This allows you to use gravity to push the air in.

I like the feature with the two heads for both valve types. It stores securely on the seatpost waterbottle braze-on's on my bike. With the velcro, never worried about it falling off my bike and had not dropped it once in over 1000 miles of riding. I'm planning to get another for my other bike.

I bought this pump last summer when I bought a new bike as part of my new found exercise program. I will tell you up front that I am no true bicycle enthusiast, nor any kind of expert. My bike is one of those comfy beach cruiser models with a single speed and old fashioned up right handlebars. My only concerns in buying a pump was making sure I had one along that was easy enough to use and solid enough to not break on me after a couple of uses. Getting sidelined by a low or flat tire that is not really badly damaged somewhere away from home is not like the similar situation with a car. Just about anywhere you go there is usually someone that happens by on a bike that does do their riding a little better prepared. But of course its very convenient and smart to have your own along.

This Schwinn pump is just about as cheap in price as they come. But is to me is a good value, very solidly built, and a breeze to use. Its lock on nozzle fits any type of tire stem I have tried it on, (I think there are only two types anyway), never allows any air to leak out in between pumps, and its just short and fat enough that it supplies a good amount of air per every stroke of your labor. Its mounting system is as easy and secure as they can offer in my opinion. The mounting bracket is compact and easy to attach to any bike, and the pump itself both snaps in place and carries velcro straps for extra security. Nothing like being far from home and seeing your tire is a getting a little flat, only to realize your pump went bye bye somewhere miles back along the trail. The only way you will shake this little jewel loose is to wreck your whole bike or lose it.

In conclusion, be advised that this little pump is not one I would recommend if you are the type to habitually allow tires to go completely flat before you figure its worth your time doing anything about it. Its volume is just a little small for pumping a tire up to a full 80 lbs from scratch. You can manage it, but it will take a little muscle and remembering well that patience is indeed a virtue. If you're more of a true bike aficionado, than I would suggest moving up to a higher volume, more expensive pump. However as an emergency or everyday pump for just topping off your tires, I feel its the very best tire pump around for the price they ask. Its solid, very easy to use, fits any tire, and as mentioned before, has a top notch bracket and snap/strap in system. You will not find a better pump for the price. Recommended...

I needed a basic portable pump for my Giant Sedona hybrid and bought this pump based on its reviews and the attractive price. It works well - ie. frame mounts well and satisfies the pressure needs for my comfort/hybrid bike tires (they don't need more than 100psi max that this one provides).

The pump works, but it's all but impossible to pump a tire over 35 psi. It will get you back on the road if you have a flat, but you won't be able to use this as your primary pump.

The Schwinn Air Expander frame pump is a elegantly looking crafted tool that would be the envy of Swedish designers. Unfortunately it is a useless piece of junk. It has dual nozzle design. A Schrader and Presta valves. The Schrader valve pin compressor on the nozzle does not push the pin down on the value so you can't inflate the tire with it. The pin pusher is also made of soft plastic so after a few uses the pin pusher is worn down and useless anyway. The locking lever on the pump does not lock on the valves and will come off when pumping. Since the tool has two nozzles you need to cover the one you are not using, otherwise the air will be pump out of the uncovered valve and not into the tire. The bike mount only attaches to one model of Schwinn water bottle cage. It has a Velcro belt for very small diameter bike frames the size of a chap-stick. The instructions and product information are a bare minimal which are on the back of the packaging. My suggestion is simple, do not buy this Schwinn pump.

Exhausting to use. Not enough leverage with the handle. The pump completely broke after only a few uses.

Sears and Kmart sell this pump. I happened upon it and tried it out in the store. On the first pump the handle fell off and into my hand. It was clear when I inspected the product that the handle is 'pressed' into the shaft of the pump. There is no screw holding it in place. A very small, hard to see crack developed at the juncture causing the catastrophic failure. These pumps are designed for one purpose...to get you back home in case of an emergency. It will not help if the pump itself doesn't work when you find yourself stranded. No way would I buy this pump...ever.

First and foremost, these pumps are for adding small amounts of air on the road after changing/patching a tube essentially they are stop gaps making the bike rideable until one can get to the nearest floor pump or gas station to fill up the tire to the proper pressure. That being said I was disappointed when this product was unable to effectively fill my flat 700 x 38c tire past 30 psi. Considering the tire normally is inflated to 90 psi and the manufacturer's minimum is 50 psi having 30 psi in this is equivalent to 12 psi in a wide MTB tire, essentially useless. The problem is once you got past 30 psi there seems to be way too much pressure the valve leaks then pops off if the valve manages to stay attached the arm strength required to pump above 50 psi is so much that you risk completely brake the pump handle. This is the problem with these pump types as far as this unit the fit and finish were fine, mount was good, and it does have a separate presta valve, however, the valve lock needs a rethink it just slips off way to easily under pressure. Take it from me buy yourself a c02 inflator yes it's a one shot deal (you only use a road pump for fixing flats anyway) but at least you can throw them in your pocket and additionally you can do a complete tube change on the road without having to look for gas station with a schrader pump.

This is a decent product if you happen to get a flat tire on the trail in the middle of nowhere. However, if you want to pump your tire up to normal PSI forget about it. It just doesn't have the strength that a gas station air pump has to inflate the tire. I think I lost more air than I put in when trying to "top off" the air pressure on my tires.

The pump itself feels sturdy. The handle is very small so it is difficult to pump with any amount of force or pressure. The holder it comes with to attach it to the frame is very cheap plastic and both pieces broke while trying to put it on. The only thing holding the pump on is a small piece of Velcro. I've since thrown away the holder and carry the pump in my pack. I was disappointed in this purchase but its too expensive to exchange so I just counted my loss.
