Works like a champ!

I have an older model of this pump (8 or 9 years old) and it is still going strong! I use the pump several times a week, almost every week of the year – most of the time on my road bike, but occasionally on my mountain bike. I use it exclusively on presta valves (often on long-stem presta valves) and have never had a problem. The one time I used it on a Schrader valve was to put air in a car tire, and it worked!

I can only wonder if the reviewers who have had a problem pumping up tubes with presta valves are doing something wrong. The pump has always worked perfectly for me.

Note that for deep rimmed wheels, if you are using a screw-on valve-extender, those can twist off slightly when you clamp the pump head on, and thus release air while you are pumping, so that can be the issue rather than the pump. Also, the wrench flats on the extender can preclude a good seal.

Great pump, reasonable price

This pump seals easily and completely and doesn't release a ton of air out of my tire if I'm klutzy when putting it on the nozzle. It pumps without requiring superman strength. It doesn't hit the same place on my hands as my bike handlebars, which is usually sore for me. The pump hose pulls over and stashes across the handle, so you can grab the handle to move the pump without the handle rising. It has a place right on the pump to store the attachments (for pumping floats or balls). Love the yellow color. I have had more expensive pumps, and this one works just as well or better than those. My other pumps have not lasted a long time so hopefully this one will have more longevity. The previous pumps I have had that were not very expensive did not have replaceable parts, but the REI salesperson said I can replace the nozzle on this one if it wears out, so hopefully that will be an easy process if it becomes necessary.

Excellent Easy to Use Pump

I use this pump almost daily and am always impressed in how easy it is to use on both my presta and schroeder valves. I also really love the hinge-to-lock design. It creates a great seal every time and is also easy to remove from the valve. This also came with several other attachments for inflating balls and such. I have not used these but am sure they will work great. The dial is not easy to read from a far distance, but does have a movable guide (pointer) that you can set to your desired pressure. You can then easily tell where the pressure is in relation to that point. It also has removable and replaceable parts so if something breaks, it doesn't necessarily mean you have to buy a whole new pump. I am sure I will have and use this pump for years to come. Overall, I am extremely happy with this pump and would definitely recommend it to anyone with a bike!

This may help some folks.

I just bought this pump, but just a 2nd one to leave in my car. Others have said that this pump doesn't do well on presta valves. I have been a cyclist for over 20 years. Mostly road bikes. One way I make sure I have proper air pressure is to remove most of the air from my tires after every ride. Pumping air before every ride insures I have the right pressure. Also not having over 100lbs of pressure in the tire before hand will I think solve the bad fit problems some are experiencing. When I start to pump air in I have only around 40-50 lbs of air in the tires. I have never experiaced any of the problems in some of the earlier reviews. I have been using this pump for 3+ years.

Works fine for me

My background: I just graduated from UMass, where I raced bicycles during mountain and road season, and lived with two bike mechanics. This pump is good. We had this pump at the shop, and at our house. I haven't had any serious issues with presta or schrader valves. The pump is solid, has good heft to it, and expels more air per pump than cheaper pumps I've had. There's no such thing as a universally perfect pump, so I think people need to be realistic about it, learn to use the pump they have, and get on the bike. All pumps have parts that go over time, this one seems like it'll out last many other models. It's entirely reliable and at this price point, I'm happy with it.

Joe Blow works for me

I've used a Joe Blow Sport for about 10 months to inflate the tires on my hybrid and other bikes up to 100 psi. I've been pleased with it and have had no problems with presta valves, either long or short, threaded or not. I've only used it on schraeder valves once or twice. It's cool that it comes with adapters for balls and other non-tire inflatables. I like the way the pump has clips to hold the adapters and hose. It seems a little hard to pump, but maybe that's just me. Also, on threaded valves I wonder if the threads will shred the pump head gasket over time. All in all, a good pump for me.

Great pump for the $$

REI has 10 kinds of pumps on shelf from cheap to super expensive, I did not want to spend $150 on a bike pump so I asked the repair tech inside the shop for a recommendation - they were using the Joe Blow every day so I figured if it was good enough for the shop, it was good enough for me. Excellent pump, very well made and its accurate. Only reason it did not get 5 stars is that the handles are plastic - not sure how long they will last if you use it a lot, but we'll see I guess. For the money, this is an excellent pump.

Stalwart

I bought this pump from REI well over 10 years ago (probably more like 20), and it's always been ready to go. I've pumped up bike tires, basketballs, soccer balls, hand truck tires, the tires on my van (that was work!), and who knows what else. Early on the hose cracked, and Topeak sent me a new one gratis. The rubber seal in the head that goes around the valve stem is finally wearing out, so it's started leaking a little. Turns out there's a rebuild kit from [@] for $4.95. When that gets here I guess I'll be good for another decade or so.
Brooklyn Em at REI on 08/08/2011

Works well.

pump works great. its super easy to attatch to either type of valve and seal with out any leaks. super easy to pump, the presure gage is great and easy to see...has a movable dial on it so you can mark where you want the psi which makes it super easy to see and know when to stop. best pump i have used by far at this price point. Only reason i gave it 4 stars rather then 5 is because i have used higher end pumps that just felt better as far as ease of use however again, at this price point is great.
Vegasblahman at REI on 04/04/2009

Works like any pump should

This is my primary pump that I use on all my bikes (mountain and road). I bought it about 6 months ago and I have no complaints. Works easily enough. Some pumps have more precise diles, but I never have any issue with getting the correct amount of air in it. I got it on sale, so for the amount I paid, I am certainly happy with it. The only thing that could be a bit better is its stability. You definitely have to keep your foot on it when you pump. But I guess you should on any pump.

Negative Reviews:

Good while it lasted (which is not long)

I have always had good luck with Topeak products until this. A family member had one (still does and works fine) so I figured I would get one as it was a Topeak and theirs worked great. Well, it worked for slightly over two years until the metal in the head sheared in half. In the time I had it I know it inflated LESS than 100 tires and never more than 80 psi. I returned it to REI to see if it was under warranty (which apparently the Topeak warranty is only two years on pumps but the REI warranty helped) and replaced it with a Serfas. The clerk, who did not know I was returning one, told me that a lot of Topeak floor pumps get returned (even the nicer models) but very few Serfas.

Stay away if you want to save your ride

Having used two other Topeak pumps that I returned (because of Valve problems) I decided to try the Joeblow because it came with dual valve adapters (presta and schraeder). I used this pump for less than 6 months. Today I blew my ride because the darned thing leaks. I even lost the 80lbs of pressure I had in my tire! I see other posts in here complaining about the same issue. I swear I will never buy a Topeak product again. I have decided to buy and own two pumps one for presta and one for schraeder...I am not connvinced using convertable valves or dual valves actually works. Plus I have the added benefit of never blowing my ride again because of a pump!

Awkward head, hard-to-read gauge

I have an older Joe Blow pump with a universal head that works much better than this twin-head model. I returned this product promptly.

This pump will not work on car tires because of the head design; there is insufficient clearance to clamp to the tire valve, at least with my wheel covers.

For cycling use, the head does not work as well on Presta valves as the universal head. The low-mounted gauge has small markings that are hard to read without bending over.

For me, a top-mounted gauge and hose works better not just for readability, but because the hose can reach the tires of a bike mounted higher on a wall.

Returning for good

I am returning this pump next week and mail-ordering a reliable one to pick up at my local store. After using this over the last year maybe 10 times, and just after it worked fine for one tire, the thing just started leaking. I don't have the time to diagnose the cause. I wound up using the micro to hand-pump our two hybrids' tires (schraders) to just enough pressure to allow us to do today's planned ride, a circuit on the Capital Crescent Trail.

You know, I had a metal floor pump for 25 years. Worked great until age and humidity got to it. This thing couldn't make it through the year. Very disappointing.

Fine for Schrader valve, not prestas

You get what you pay for with this pump. Easy to use and has held up over the 3 years I've owned it. It's fine on a standard schrader valve. But when I started riding a bike with presta valves, I found this pump won't engage the valve unless I let all of the air out of the tire first. I ruined three presta valves trying to attach this pump. It's especially leaky and difficult to use on long-stem prestas. If you're riding a road bike, I'd skip this pump and pay a few extra bucks for something like the Turbo, which I'm using now with no probs at all.
ShaneG at REI on 06/06/2008

cheap materials

aside from the well documented problems getting the head to seal, it worked ok for the short time it worked.

topeak used a cheap plastic (not rubber) hose; it will quickly begin to crack where it bends, and will blow out not long after.

todson, their support company, refuses to warranty the hose even though it is obviously a materials problem, and will offer to sell you a new one for about half the cost of the pump. don't do it - you can get 3/16" fuel line for about $2 at your local auto parts store which fits perfectly.

Plunger & air gauge broke

I've had this product for some item but it didn't get much use.
- The air gauge hasn't worked for a while.
- Leaks badly and is hard to use on presto
- The final straw was today when the plunger broke. Most of the part are steal. However the plunger which does the most work is plastic with a plastic shaft. This part broke inside the handle and is not fixable.

I can't fix it with a rebuild kit, Recycling what I can and tossing the rest of the parts.

Junk, junk, junk.....
Cvarah at REI on 06/06/2011

Pay extra for something better

My Topeak Joeblow just broke on me today. I looked online to see if there is a way to fix the plunger for schrader tubes. Instead I found all these reviews with people having the exact problem and also saying that this is not easily fixed.

I bought this pump from REI about three years ago. I distinctly remember looking at the reviews. They were much higher before and no mention of this problem.

Spend more money on something better. You shouldn't buy this product and REI shouldn't be selling it.
Sporks at REI on 11/11/2011

Poor Presta Performance

I agree with the other opinions that this pump stinks for Presta valves... especially the long stem ones for aero rims. That's the only type I use so I cannot vouch for Schraeder valves. I used to have a Cat 3 license so I know my way around equipment. After two years of wrestling to fill road bike tires just over 100psi, the metal tube fatigued and snapped off at the base. I guess I got what I paid for. If it works out for you, great... but I wouldn't recommend this pump to anyone!
mgoblue0970 at REI on 12/12/2009

Blows is the Operative Word

This pump is for Schrader valves only. Ignore what the manuf. says. It simply is NOT reliable for Presta valves. It might work, it might not depending on what design Presta valve might be in your bike at the time. It is VERY frustrating to use because it so inconsistent in engaging the Presta's valve.

I just bought the Serfas FP-200 to replace the Topeak and it WORKS. Flawlessly. And it's the same price as the Topeak. The Joe Blow will be relegated to the trunk.

Neutral Reviews:

Good Value

After having my pump for a few years, it has now decided that it will no longer pump up road bike tires correctly. Lately I haven't been able to get it to pump up road bike tires at all. Not sure if this is the average time that a pump usually lasts.
R6 Rider at REI on 09/09/2007

Decent Pump

Had a little problem getting the pump to fit properly on Presta valves at first but after I figured out how to do it, I had no problems with leaks like others have stated. Good pump to have in the garage, specially if you have kids and all their inflatable toys.
IPAtaster at REI on 06/06/2012

You get what you pay for

Good for the price & while it worked, but the valve mech. will be the first to go. Be gentle on the valve handle... even though it's metal, you can shear the thin shaft inside with your barehands.
Dragonfr7 at REI on 01/01/2009

Hitting .500

At this time I have different valves. The lock engages nicely with the Presta, but not the Schrader. Otherwise, I like the pump, so might install a 2nd Presta.
