Need floor pump with screw-on presta connector

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Can anyone recommend a good quality floor pump with a pressure gauge and a threaded screw-on connection for presta? I absolutely hate the push-on / lever action head on my Wrench Tech pump. I've seen frame pumps with screw-on presta connections, it seems like a floor pump with the same setup would be available.

Thanks...

The Pro Team from Shimano is the only one I know of.

I looked for the Shimano, but couldn't find one from an online store in the United States. My local bike shop looked through 4 catalogs and couldn't find one. I ended up ordering a Silca Super Pista. Reviews are mixed, so I'm not sure what to expect.

Thanks for your input...

all Distributors are on the back cover.

Why? I've not yet had cause to use my bike pump on the Presta wheelset I have, but the floor pump with lever action head I have is great. It's one of those with the "clever valve" that does both Presta and Schraeder without swapping the insert around, and it works great.

After a season with the Wrench Tech pump, the rubber inside the lever head was chewed up and became a royal pain to push on and pull off of the presta valve. A well designed screw-on connection seems much better.

Yes, I followed the links. The problem is that I need more than just a new head, the valve extension isn't what I want, and no retail store information was available on the pro-bikegear site. Additionally, the site gave me errors and was painfully slow to browse though.
