This is a great floor pump. I'm a big fan of Lezyne products: I carry the Road Drive mini pump on rides and have just about all of their tools. The combination between form and function is what always draws me to this brand. This pump specifically has a thread-on connector, which takes a little bit longer than a typical lever-locking connector, but I always feel better about the connection at the valve with this screw-on connector. Plus, it doesn't feel like it's torquing the valve sideways the way that most lever-locking pumps do. The gauge is fairly easy to read, but it is on the floor, so if if you're pumping in a not-so-well-lit area, you may not be able to read the numbers exactly, but you'll soon learn exactly where 120psi is and you'll be fine. (Maybe I just have bad eyes.) I've used pumps that tell you what psi is in the tire right when you connect the hose to the valve, but this pump does not do that. I don't think it's a huge draw-back because I always bleed a little air out of the tires before pumping up anyway, so the initial psi reading wouldn't be any more helpful then the reading after the first pump. The gauge is accurate and there is no needle float at all. The wooden handles are nice and secure, and they feel good in the hands. It takes me no time at all to make sure both my tires are at 120 before each ride - remember to bleed the hose before unscrewing. The hose secures by looping around the top handle and locks into a hook at the base of the unit. This secures the handle down and keeps everything tidy, though it does put some stretch onto the hose, which so far hasn't been an issue whatsoever. Buy with confidence.
