The older Joe's air chuck wasn't the best. The new one, at least after one year, is near-perfect. It's easy to use and secure. The gauge has a useful range and size, and the position makes it easy to see. No reason to spend more for a pump. This one really is excellent in every way.
Love this pump. Much better product than my old pump. My old joe blow kept popping off as I was filling tires. This new model has a better locking mechanism and also a clearer display of the PSI. I have many different types of tires, so the manual limit indicator is much easier to move and also much more easily seen because of its yellow color. Nice pump.
I've had this pump for a couple months and, so far, I am satisfied with it. A year or two from now I may have a different opinion. Based on past experience I wouldn't buy a cheaper model pump. Cheap pumps don't last if used frequently. I own five bikes with presta values and my wife has a bike with schrader so, the twin head design was a factor.
6 bikes at home, so we have several pumps, but it seemed every time I needed a pump, none to be found ... so I got my own! Love the dual heads since some of my friends have different valves, but most of all love that when we gals have a pump with us, no one seems to need it!
This Joe Blow Sport III is a replacement for an original Joe Blow that is 20 years old. The original Joe Blow (same color) was still a working pump but the rubber hose had begun to rot and crumble away. Instead of replacing the hose I chose to spend a few more dollars on a new one. And guess what? This is a better pump easier to read gauge, better platform, larger handle. I fully expect it to last 20 years.
Road tires, beach bike tires, and yes even my car tires! Excellent non-fatiguing resistance and visible pressure indicator. I suggest caution inserting the pump clamp to the valve stem as it is all plastic and one never knows how sturdy it may be. Otherwise looking forward to a long life durable easy to use pump.
