To those who have struggled with them, the mountains reveal beauties that they will not disclose to those who make no effort. That is the reward the mountains give to effort.
And it is because they have so much to give and give it so lavishly to those who will wrestle with them that men love the mountains and go back to them again and again. The mountains reserve their choice gifts for those who stand upon their summits.
-Sir Francis Younghusband
This is a gorgeous bike pump. I never thought I'd say that about an air pump, but the black body with wooden handle just looks very nice. The pump is strong and the presta valve attachment is great. One problem, that cost this product a 5 star review, the hose is just too short. It might not be a problem depending on your bike and size but my size large santa cruz bronson has trouble with this product. When I flip the bike onto the seat to pump up the air, the hose barley reaches the rear tire nozzle but it works. It does not reach the front tire at all. honestly less than 2", its frustratingly close... Anyways, great product with a short hose, id probably buy the non-travel version just for the longer hose if i had a chance to re-do this purchase
