Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pump at a fair price Going from a mini-pump to this pump was a tremendous change for the better. This pump's nozzle is easy to use (once you realize the yellow thing turns AWAY from the valve, duh) and while not "easy" the pump can quickly go from 60psi to 100psi in about 5 pumps. The base is not the strongest material and when you're pushing 100psi and you're wobbling it seems like you might break it but it holds together. The dial is easy to read and there's even a little marker that you can move to what psi you're aiming for. I've used this pump every couple of days for about a month now and would certainly recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Serves Its Intended Purpose Have been using this on all our family's bikes that have tire sizes: 700c x 25, 26" x 1.95", 18" and 16". These tires have Presta and Schrader valves. This pump handles them quite easily. The user only has to remember which pump head goes to which valve type, which way to flip the locking lever and things are pretty straightforward. This pump can inflate a road tire from no air to the desired psi in about 20 strokes. But MTB tires will take longer because of its bigger volume. The longer hose enables the pump to be used on a bike that's on a workstand. The dial gauge is small but clear. There is a bit of glare however and eyeglass wearers might need a bit of squinting in order to see the intended PSI. It won't stand to a punishing the way a shop-grade pump can, but with some TLC, this pump should last a good 5 or more years. And in case, its part(s) do fail, Topeak assures that it can be repaired and/or replaced.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good road bike pump Good pump with simple to use chuck that's replaceable and smooth pumping at high pressure. I mainly use it for my road bike and fill up to 110psi. The barrel is thinner so at that pressure it's pretty smooth and accurate. For bigger tires like mountain bikes or cruisers, it will take a few more strokes to fill but still manageable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what I need! I've needed to own a pump for a long time - since I needed both a Schrader and a Presta valve, this seemed like a good purchase. I haven't regretted it yet! The pump is smooth, the PSI guage seems very accurate, and the valve enclosure is tight and doesn't leak. What else could you need?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Floor Pump Inflates the Tires Rather Well I needed a new pump that would inflate the bicycle tires without causing some exhaustion. My last pump was a Bell model where the shaft was too short, which made it difficult to inflate the bicycle tire. This wonderful Topeak Joe Blow Max HP Floor Pump made it quite easy for me to inflate my bicycle tires. The steel barrel that pushes the air down & into the tire was plenty long enough so that you only needed some minimal strength to fill up the tire to the maximum pressure. The yellow locking lever also made it quite easy to lock the escape air vent on the other side of the twin head valve that I was using. The swivel hose is extra long which made the operation very easy. The gauge is bright & easy to read & the handle is padded for comfort. I am completely satisfied with this brand & model. This was well thought out before all the work was done to make this an enjoyable floor pump.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as expected Easy to attach (tried on both Schrader and Presta) to the valve. The locking mechanism (the yellow switch) is a bit stiff but it's sturdy. The gauge seems to be accurate (I was previously using a pump without a gauge and basing it on feel, which was a bad idea. Now my rides are much smoother!) And the pumping itself was smooth. the pump is tall, so it only takes a few pumps to inflate the tires (hybrid bikes to 65psi).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A pain in the...hand. The pump does not have instructions attached, but I found some You Tube videos explaining how to use it. Fine. It looked pretty simple: take cap off tire valve, attach correct side of pump to valve, turn yellow lever, pump air. However, it actually wasn't easy because the yellow lever was so hard to turn. I have small hands, but I'm not particularly weak. I just can't get the yellow lever to move without exerting so much pressure it feels like it will break. I also couldn't get a good seal on the valve and simply could not get the tire pumped up. (Yes I used the right attachment for the Schrader). I bought this pump because it looked like a quality product. But never go by looks alone! There are cheaper pumps that will do a better job. Thank you REI for letting me return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Quality Bike Pump I was looking for a sturdy pump that could fill my thin tires, and this pump does the trick. The quality of the plastic is fine. The gauge is functional. The seal in the schrader side is quite nice. I haven't tried the presta side yet. Its a satisfying experience with this floor pump. I recommend it.

Questions & Answers

I'm only now getting to try out my Topeak Joeblow Max HP Floor Pump- and I feel like a dummy.... I can't get the seal to engage- so I know I'm doing something wrong. My husband can't figure it out either- so, HELP!

Make sure that the head of your pump matches the valve on your bike (Schrader or Presta). If you have a Presta valve on your bike, make sure that you have opened the valve stem prior to inflating the tube.
