A Helpful Guide to Bicycle and Ball Pumps
How do you pick the best bicycle and ball pump to fit your needs?
Issues with inflation is a frequent inconvenience that many of us encounter, especially if you own a bike or an inflatable ball. You may not be an avid cyclist. However, if you own a bicycle, you will know that a flat or low tire on your bike brings feelings of frustration and annoyance. Similarly, when you have planned a game of football or basketball with your friends, but your ball has deflated, again it creates feelings of aggravation. Moreover, is there is a way to make the tiresome and mundane task of inflating your tire or ball easier?
The short answer is yes if you buy or own the right bicycle and ball pump that you need. So, Fulwind's aim in this article is to help you select the best pump for you, which will help relieve you of those negative feelings. Some of you may already be aware of the different types of pumps that are available, yet are you selecting the pump that suits your needs? While bicycle and ball pumps are not really an overly complicated subject, you still need to take some consideration before purchasing just any old ball or bicycle pump.
When it comes to purchasing a bicycle pump, including a multi-use pump (for bikes and balls), you need to know that the majority of bicycles have two different valve types. The first is the Presta valve and is commonly used on road bikes and occasionally mountain bikes. The second is Schrader, also known as the ‘American’ valve, which is used globally on nearly every motor vehicle and with bicycles that have wide rimmed tires. Generally, the majority of bike pumps will work on both valves, but Fulwind do advise that you check your tire type, and the pump will be compatible before you make your purchase. The last thing you want is to buy a pump that doesn’t actually fit on the valve, which is why the multi-purpose ball and bicycle pumps are the best choices.
If you own a ball whether it’s a football, volleyball or basket, if you have one at home then you also need to have a pump. Regardless if you have a high-quality, premium it is inevitable that your ball will start to lose air over time. If you have been searching for a ball pump, you may have noticed they are different in types, models, sizes and how they operate. However, similar to the bicycle pump the most common features of a ball pump are the needle, hose, pressure gauge, and barrel. Again, this is another reason why multipurpose pumps are the best type of pump to have in your home.
