Pump Upgrade - Topeak JoeBlow Sprint Floor Pump

I recently upgraded to a Topeak JoeBlow Sprint floor pump with an easily-to-read pressure gauge. This model has the pressure gauge at the top, where I don't have to squint to read the dial. I am starting to enjoy such refined features, especially when I don't have my glasses on.
My former pump was also a Topeak JoeBlow, but an older model; and a free one at that. You can read more about why it was free here. Now, my old pump sits in my friend's garage.

The new pump has some other desirable features, such as a Handle Lock, Air Pressure Release button,  and a hook to hang it on the wall. I enjoy the last feature very much, as I am pressed for floor space in my work area.
 Here is that big analog pressure gauge. So much easier to read.
For another $30, I could have bought the Pro pump, which has the Smart Head technology; which means you can use it on a Presta or a Schrader value, without changing anything at all. The head will automatically adjust itself for the type of valve you use it on. For me personally, it isn't worth it, at this point in time. I got more time than money.

Hope all is well with you.

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy & Healthy New Year.

Peace :)
