spend your money on a real pump
I bought this as a cheap substitue pump to through in the back of my car for race day or trips (since I inevitably forget my pump eveytime i put the bike in my car and have to borrow someone elses) As most of the other reviews note the major weakness is the locking mechanism. When using this to pump up the prestas on my roadie it has been fairly difficult to lock using the twisting motion with out loosing some pressure and sometime doesnt seal so you have to unlock then lock again and screw around with it. Other than that it works fine. My recommendation is that if you dont want to spend 10min screwing around with your pumps locking mechanism to inflating your tires spend the money buy a quality pump. Not to name names but I've had my other floor pump a Topeak for 10yrs and no problems.
It's sturdy and of quality construction. The twist lock instead of the traditional lever lock is a little strange at first and the presta side is a little awkward, but it seems to be working well so far.
Depends on you!
The twist lock is awkward unless you're familiar with it. While it's not a problem for personal use, the inevitable "hey can I borrow your pump" that happens in the parking lot gets annoying because you have to opperate the pump lock for the person.
The twist mechanism will not work with HED or Zipp 404 valve stem extensions. I don't know if it will work with others, but for those two wheel systems it does not.
Price for a metal-body pump with great handle is amazing.
(Accuracy v. Precision for the science kids) Gauge is precise, but consistently reads 5psi low (assuming that the cross-referencing gauge was accurate). Compensating for that, is simple.
I feel like I can pump a tire up in 4 pumps with this pump. Nice quality, guage works good, and the wood handle gives it some style.
Durable and gets the job done
I purchased this about 2 months ago and considering all of the flats we have gotten on our townies we have used this a ton. It is super durable and even after being left out in the rain a few times, no rust has appeared. Also I love the look and know it was worth the price. I figure this will definitely stand up over the test of time.
Looks can be decieving
I bought this thinking a pump is a pump. Well this one never worked out well for me. The mechanism for locking the end onto the tire utilizes a twist method instead of the standard pop top. I only use schraeder with this pump and for some reason the seal never works that well even when in locked position. I am planning on returning it for a standard pump.
Cutter Glycerin Floor Pump Does the Job
I like the Glycerin Floor Pump fine, but there are a few things I would change. The head locks by twisting it, and I prefer a lever to pull up instead. You twist it one way for the Schrader valves and the other for Presta. I find that it is very stiff to twist in and out of the Presta lock, and I end up loosing a lot of air at either end of the pumping process (putting the pump head on and taking it off the valve). The gauge is relatively easy to read, even for it being at the bottom of the pump. The twisting dial for the arrow is also a nice feature. In all, I think the Cutter pumps are a nice value at a price point slightly lower than the others. I think the extra money for the Fuse may be worth it though.
Who am I kidding. I hate this pump and it makes me frustrated every time I use it. It works eventually, but it usually takes a few tries to get it attached to a tube correctly, and in the process your tube loses a lot of air. I hate to knock our Cutter brand. Some of the Cutter stuff is really good quality, but sadly this pump is not one of those items.
This is a simple, dependable floor pump, I am pretty stoked on it, I was using a Pedros floor pump, it stopped working within a couple of months.
I like it, my wife likes it!
My wife and I have had a debate over pumps for some time. I have my preferences towards accurate guages and easy valve connections. Her prefererence has been the twist-to-connect hose tips. This pumps takes care of that and has an accurate guage along with reasonable air volume per pump stroke. The wood handles looks pretty darn cool, too!

Broke My Valve Stem
I originally gave this pump a 4/5 star rating, but I've got to change it. I've always had two issues with the nozzle on this pump. 1) as my previous review stated, it's hard to get the nozzle to close on the valve. And now, 2) once you have the nozzle on the valve, it wants to grip it, and you have to manipulate it to get the nozzle off--it doesn't want to let you pull it straight off, and has quite a bit of resistance to coming off. The other day, this became a real problem for me because my presta valve stem actually broke off in the nozzle. A pump is not supposed to do that, hence the 2-star rating. I'll be sending this pump back to BC and getting something else.

Currently replacement heads/valves are not available. Should you break part of this pump you can return it to Backcountry.com.
A little tricky
This is a good looking pump, that inflates really easily. But, I've found it a little tricky to get the nozzle to close on the valve. You have to twist it to close it instead of flip it. Plus, you have to twist it one way to close it on a schraeder and the other to close it on a presta. It all works, it's just a little confusing.
Schrader and Presta Pump In One
This pump is sweet with a real wood handle, presta and schrader compatibility. The gauge is easy to read and pumping my road tires up to 8 mill bars is easy.
