Broken presta connector after few times.
I must say that this pump is shocking for a bike. It takes ages and feels like it's going to break when I use it and the plastic attachments feel wrong. The gauge doesn't give you a proper reading and darts all over the place. Would be okay for a football but not for the PSI I need for the road bike.I just wish I could return it but no longer have the receipt! I only used it once... Can a representative let me know the returns policy please?
The pump is advertised as being compatible with Presta valves, but unfortunately due to the poor design you can only reach ~50 PSI with a struggle, which is completely useless for a road bike.
A typical pump has a 'clamp' used to provide a tight connection between the pump and the tyre, however this pump uses the clamp to attach the Presta attachment to the pump. Therefore you are not able to get a secure connection between the Presta attachment and the tyre valve. This means the hose flies off as soon as any pressure starts to build in the tyre.
If you get down on the ground to grip the hose in place on the tyre, and use your hand and all your bodyweight to press down the 'foot' pump, you can get it to about 50PSI, but it's very awkward and it's easy to slip and hurt yourself.
This product is not fit for purpose, and unfortunately I've misplaced the receipt so can't even return it despite barely being a week old!
Thank you for taking the time to review this pump. What can really help with presta compatibility is to screw on a presta to schrader adapter to the presta valve. Some stores often have these lying about so it may be worth asking for one as it will allow you to go up to higher pressures. Personally, I prefer the traditional "track pump" with a handle as it allows the user to reach higher pressures at a faster rate and with less effort, especially for road bikes.
Irrespective of the lack of a receipt, drop a line to your local store as I'm sure they will swap it for you with little fuss.

This pump is very effective. Less than 12 foot pumps is sufficient to pump my bike tyre.Highly reccommended.
In general, it does what it says, but unfortunately it tends to slip sideways very easily when pumping.
I had to purchase the more expensive one which you put your feet on and use your hands.
Thank you for your feedback regarding this pump. I will forward this information on to the team at b'Twin.

Looks good, nice compact design and a good range of valve fitments. Easy to carry in a rucksack or panniers. The downsides are: the lack of volume within the barrel means a lot of pumping is required to inflate a 2"+ MTB tyre and the fold down metal stabiliser doesn't lock into place therefore it makes the pump unstable when pumping.
I was looking for a bicycle pump with a pressure guage but I have poor arm strength and the upright pumps were very expensive - then I saw this - a lightweight foot pump. It does feels slightly flimsy but have used it for 4 bikes so far without problems and it has a handy little storage hole with different valve types included. If it lasts it is a great design. I have had it less than a month.
Annoying I have just ordered a bike with airless tyres!!!
