The other day, I was shocked as I saw 3 pumps read 3 entirely different readings.

I guess pumps are like scales...and the pressure, like the weight, is relative.

Can anyone recommend an accurate pressure gauge. I want to know what I am actually pumping into my
tires and I feel this will be a good tool for my group.

Accugage. It will cost you around $15.

The cheap, pencil-type guages from auto parts stores are generally accurate +-1psi. Of course
they're for Schrader valves, but you could use one of those little adapters.

But all you need to do is find the pressure that works for you, and use the guage on your pump to be
able to repeat that. It doesn't matter if the guage is accurate, as long as it's consistent.

45 Zefal Husky Units works fine for me.

Is the Zefal "twin graph" accurate / durable ? Seems to be made of plastic, but .......

Thanks to all who replied. I use my gauge like my scale...relative weight. But apparently, it is
reading much lower than it used to, and I need a point of reference.

will check out acugage...
