Help selecting a bike pump

Hello - I just got a new bike with gator tigers.  When I went to the gas station to put air in the tires it would not work as the air valve on the bike is stick-like.  That didn’t work with the pump.  So I want to buy a bike pump that works for that type of tire and that has a gauge so I can be sure that I am putting the right amount in.


Thanks for your help.

@Dlm60 thanks for reaching out! Virtually all bike tubes use either Presta or Schrader valve stems and most bike pumps that we sell can accommodate either style. Here's a helpful article on selecting a bike pump that covers types of valves, type of pumps, and standard tire pressure ranges. A few models you might consider that easily work with both types of valves:

Hope this helps, and let us know if you have additional questions!
