Topeak JoeBlow Sport 2 Floor Pump
Very Good Pump, Good Durability
I've probably owned five similar pumps, including many that cost 2x+, and this one has served us well for 7 years, and is still going strong. I use it for everything from our road and mountain bikes (most presta, some schrader) to inflating athletic balls. The built-in pressure gauge is high pressure, so it doesn't work for athletic balls (you have to guestimate / squeeze-test). The air volume is average; it takes ~five strokes to fill a low 29er MTB tire, it only takes two or three strokes to take a low 23c road tire (70 lbs) up to 110 lbs. I take this pump in the truck with me when I drive to rides, so it get's moved around a lot, and takes a beating, but I haven't had to replace anything yet (chuck/hose/gauge).
