    my floor pump is actually too big to easily clip on the presta valve to pump air in. i need to bend the valve quite a bit outwards for it to be air tight.
    are there any recommendations, a pump that fits or are there any angle adapter available?

    Yes, from Silca, a little 90 degree bend adapter frequently called a 'hash pipe'.

    google Silca and you will probably find it.
