I was worried that the presta adapter on this floor pump was defective - but you have to screw the adapter onto the stem first, and THEN push the pump head onto it. The device works as advertised, and it's very accurate gauge as well!

(heads up to all you other reviewers who can't figure out how to make the Presta valve work properly)

I bought this pump at a Walmart and, like others have said, it could not pump up my road bike tires (presta valves). The nozzle kept flying off of the valve and would not stay on the valve long enough for the tire to be inflated. It would only inflate the tire halfway, until it got difficult to push down and then the nozzle would fly off with each hard pump. I returned it.

I think the pump works great but I use mine for a cruiser bike, the tires of which only need to be around 60 psi. It only took around 7 pumps to top the half-filled tires my bicycle arrived with. For the purpose of my light use, I think this is a great product.

It's hard to tell if this pump will hold up to heavy use without having broken it already but I'll tell you what I think about it. The main shaft and the pole is made of metal, however the base and the cap on top is plastic. So I can see the pump breaking at a point if you're one of those people who really like to pump these things hard and handle it pretty roughly. If you're a heavy bike enthusiast and you're looking for a pump that will last, buy one that is encased in all metal. If you're looking for one sub 30 dollars, this one is just as good as the others. Just use it with more care.

I haven't tried it with any presta valves so I cannot comment on it's functionality there. I will say that with schrader valves it works fine. It seals great and has a smooth pumping stroke. The gage is a good size with easily read values for accurate indications.

The Schwinn Steel Floor Pump with Gauge is a good value. However, the instructions for use are WRONG WRONG WRONG. I tried several times to add a little air to my bike tires following the instructions for the Schrader valves. The result was that I let air OUT of the tires. Number 2 on the instructions says "Push thumb lever down, to lock position." It does not lock. The illustration even has an arrow pointing down!

After trying many times, there was no longer enough air in the tires. I had to walk it to my bike shop. An employee quickly solved my dilemma. He put the pump head on the valve, the PUSHED THE THUMB LEVEL UP, TO LOCK POSITION! I am not an idiot, the instructions were wrong for the pump I received.

Fix the instructions.

Maybe this works for schrader valves and beach balls, but it is utterly useless for presta valves. After 30 frustrating minutes of trying to air up a tube on my bike, I returned it to the store, bought a Giant Control Tower T1 pump at my local bike shop, and I was back in business.

This piece of trash didn't pump the tires, which was no surprise as I heard and felt air escaping from the main shaft (or whatever you call the thing that the rod goes into). To add insult to injury, the lube bubbled out of the shaft and got all over my clothes and bike! Now that I am back to review, I notice the price went up 4.39 from when I bought it! Crazy, don't buy!

It works, keeps steady pressure, I would say this is the best pump you could get at this price. Only problem I ever had with it was the presta valve adapter. It's is made out of plastic, so it broke pretty easily. But you can get a metal adapter at any bike shop for about a dollar, so not a big deal

My experience was like a summary of all the other one-star reviews: hose leak at bottom? Check! Cheap stand that cracks under pressure? Check! Presta valve adapter worthless, making the pump unusable for my bike? Check! Pump handle that pulled free and nearly made me smack myself in the face? Check! This unbelievably cheap, poorly made item fell apart on my third use of it, which is probably a blessing, given how awesomely frustrating and curse-provoking it was to use. There's value to be had in this price range--save yourself a headache.
