The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.
Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.
Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.
Planet Bike Comp Floor Pumpis rated3.0out of5by10.
Rated5out of5byma thomasfromwe love itWe're no pro's. Just two parents who like to ride bikes with the two young ones. Their tires need air often. We used a portable hand pump which is fine, really, except that we keep misplacing it. So we got a bigger one that shows us the target pressure and this one is much easier to pump and makes the job quick and easy. Works great for us!

Rated1out of5bykaifilionfromtears valvesAs others have said, this thing tears valves regularly. I've done it now to 3 different presta tubes, and I know that I wasn't doing anything wrong. I tried putting some oil on the head, and that will probably help, but eventually it'll dry and tear another.
There are better pumps out there.

Rated4out of5byJP77777fromThis is a fine economical pump. All I nI don't compete but I ride almost as much and as hard as competitive cyclists, for fun & fitness. Put on 12,000 miles in the past 3 years on my road bike with presta valves. I started 4.5 years ago with this pump (Schrader tubes) as my first purchase and it's all I've needed until this week when the check valve failed.
Note on my check valve failure that may explain some people's experience with hard pump pressure-Presta valves sometimes stick when you unscrew them to fill with air. This causes you to have to "punch through" that friction with the pump, just to get started. After that first pump, it works fine but strength is not an issue for me anyway. Pumping to 120 pounds may be difficult for some folks. Personally, I think this may have caused my check valve failure. The rubber ball slammed into the chamber and could not be unstuck. No replacements from PB's website but I will call support to confirm. BTW, to prevent having to "punch thru" that valve, just manually release a little air (just a squirt) before attaching the pump.
Anyway, I've used this pump on all valve types, balls, even car tires. It works great. Decent volume. I do see what people mean about the head sticking to threaded stems but it's not damaging if you are careful to remove. Air backpressure assists with the detach effort. I now use threadless specialized presta valves that have zero friction on or off. The PB Comp pump works like a dream and has durable build quality.
I've found the gage to be reliable or at least consistant. I have not checked with another gage tho. I top off my tires before every ride (4 or more per week), to 105-120 psi. Overnight I usually lose 3-10 pounds depending on starting pressure and whether or not I've fixed a flat with a co2 cartridge on the road recently. Takes 2-5 pumps to top off a 700x25 tire. That pressure drop is typical for high pressure road tires. Mtn bikes don't need this kind of attention below about 80 PSI or so. CO2 in particular seeps thru the rubber more than air.
I just bought a replacement for the failed pump. Same exact model from the same place (REI) because it just works and I'm familiar with it's performance. I did notice the head very slightly sticks on the threadless stem where it didn't at all with my old pump indicating there is a break-in period. As I remember, it's not that big of a deal. I have not damaged any tubes in the 4 years I've had this pump.

Rated4out of5byDrTfromgoing either wayi have numerous bikes and thus numerous valves to deal with. This dual adapter works nicely on both
The barrel is kind of small for any thing but a bike tire but I have put lots of time and effort into at least two car tires. Pump work better than I did by the end.
lots of plastic but not cheaply made. Generous hose length and thick walled as well

Rated1out of5byChazfromPassI like Planet Bike lights and computers but I can't say the same about this pump. I tried it for a couple weeks and it's just plain tough to use. It's hard to attach the head to the valve, hard to lock to the valve stem and hard to pump. Not that stable either. I returned it no problem. But like I say, I like Planet Bike's other stuff.

Rated1out of5byminileefromTears presta valve stem from tubeI lost 2 brand new tubes because the head of the pump holds the valve stem too tightly. When trying to disengage the head from the presta valve stem, you have to pull so hard that the stem rips from the tube (and this type of damage is irreparable). As another reviewer mentioned, I injured my hand pulling so hard. I returned the pump to REI for a refund.

Rated4out of5byJennseyfromExcellent and great valueI've used this pump several times in the few weeks that I've owned it. In this hot climate it's necessary to check tire pressure before every ride. I'm always below the level I should be. It operates easily and is stable. Attaches no problem and I haven't had any pop offs. I used to have the Joe Blow, this was cheaper and so far very comparable quality. Plus it has the "love handle" Makes me smile everytime I see it! ;)
