Topeak/Extra UK - great service!



Hi

I'm not a habitual poster here, but I thought I'd just mention...

After some years of faithful service, my Topeak Joe Blow Sport track
pump started letting air out of tyres instead of putting it in - one
too many outside-overnight-in-the-rain occasions.

Halfords (amazingly!) had a kit of spares, from which they replaced a
rusted non-return spring, but it still leaked. Turned out the gauge
was shot, too. I contacted the distributor, Extra UK, expecting a
polite brush-off, but in fact they cannibalized a broken pump and are
sending me the gauge.

Anyway, I'm a firm believer that no good deed should go unpunished, so
I thought I'd share.

Cheers
John

I've also had excellent service from Toepeak. A colleague managed to
destroy the football bladder pin and the Toepeak agents sent me a free
replacement by return of post.
