Wow.....talk about pushing the edge for a retail price...$450 for a floor pump?!?!?

I've been very impressed with the stuff that Silca has done since Josh from Zipp took over, but holy jeez....

"Both Presta and Schrader chucks are connected to the SILCA exclusive 12,000 psi hose."



Why, that will satisfy even the most ardent adherent to the 'higher the pressure, the faster you go' mind.

I just ordered a "Classic" Zephal frame pump, basically an HPX styled as the old HP. It has the frame fit head with the spring "on-off" twist of the HPXand HP styled barrel, handle and thumblock. It should look good on the ti fixie.

And it is pricey. 390 dimes. (They are talking dimes for that floor pump aren't they?)

Isn't that 1200 psi so you can refill your CO2 cartridges? I call that some visionary thinking.

Now you can show up at big rides with jersey pockets full of cartridges and top off everyone's tires, appearing like a very wealthy and generous soul and and you got that prestige for a one time $450.

Edit: Of course, my $39 Zephal will be able to do the same thing.   (Top off the tires, not bring me the prestige.)  So can my old ones.

Ah, the hipsters have taken over yet another facet of our past time. Who else would pay $450 for a "artisanal" floor pump?

Does it come in different color options? Be the first one on your block to get the entire set!

you could buy an air compressor and nail guns for that much and be able to air up your car tires.
