While most hardcore road cyclists prefer a floor pump, there are few types of pumps handier than electric pumps that run off a vehicle’s 12-volt DC system. These units are lightweight, simple to use, and small enough to easily store somewhere in your vehicle or garage. When shopping for electric pumps, look for features like high psi capacity, auto shut off, and easy-to-read pressure displays. One word of caution about these pumps as they relate to bicyclists: Make sure you have the right adapter for the style of valve your tubes use, and they’ll never let you down in a pinch. An added bonus for these pumps is they can also be used to air up car and SUV tires, trailer tires, and other tires that might need air when you’re traveling. Consequently, they’re extremely handy to have around even if you seldom ride your bicycle.
