This pump is WELL worth the money. It's really compact, easily fits in my handlebar bag, and strikes the balance between heavy enough to feel durable but light enough to not add unnecessary weight. It extends out a surprisingly long distance which helps make it a really efficient hand pump. Unlike most of the pumps I've owned before, the hose on this pump does not feel delicate and flimsy and the locking, interchangeable chuck is both efficient and convenient. This really is a thoughtfully designed and well made product.
I live in a seaside community where I CANNOT have my cycling gear deteriorate rapidly due to sea salt in the air.
I used this product on my newly-installed Yakima Roof Rack, lock cores, overhead bike rack and cargo box's stainless steel parts.
It STOPPED already-growing rust on a newly-installed product, DEAD in it's tracks. A little rust smut easily disappeared...
I like the UV indicator, so you can visibly see where you've been with the product and what you've missed.
If you have a roof rack or want to protect your bike,...this is IT!
Ride enough, and sooner or later, your derailleur hanger will become misaligned. And when it does, shifting suffers. You could take your bike to the shop and pay a mechanic $35+ to realign it, or you can pick up this tool and do it yourself in a matter of minutes. It's simple to use, and Park Tool has a great You Tube video that shows you how to do it right. Two realignments and the tool has paid for itself. Like all Park Tools, this alignment gauge is well made and will last. It's a solid investment for anyone who enjoys working on their own bikes
