But, being honest, the main thing I like about it is it's just a
joy to use. The action feels smooth and it has very clever details
like a magnetised head for easy storage.
The best thing is the Hiro 'chuck' - I have heard it described
as a masterpiece in industrial design. And it is. Remember we are
talking about a pump here... I love that Silca are making these
tools objects of desire.
Having a quality tool means that you actually want to check your
tyre pressure every ride; and that's a good thing, and will improve
your riding and riding enjoyment.
And when you amortise that over 25 years it's very easy (applying
man maths) to say it's a veritable bargain!
