Finally bought a track pump
#1
Got to say after years of messing around with a hand pump on my bike I went out and spent some birthday money I had on a Bontrager track pump.

Best thing I have ever purchased for the bike, so easy to use and even the end valve does presta without having to mess around swapping bits around.

Makes a difference being able to actually get some air in my tyres

Totally agree, I wouldn't be without a track pump.

The next thing on your list, if you haven't got one already, should be a 4th hand tool/cable puller:

You can get them for a tenner: http://www.bikegoo.co.uk/product.php/887/0

Not something you need often, but they make setting up brakes and gears so much easier when you have to.
