I already have a combination shock [HTML_REMOVED] tire pump but it doesn't have a gauge (looks the same as the one below), which is necessary for setting shock pressure.

Norco/Axiom has one called the Accelerate Air DLX Gauge for $60. Anyone seen one in a LBS in Metro Van?

Any other brands?

Specialized has one too, but is very heavy.

Here are a few.
Crankbrothers has four different ones which all look good.

oh, I thought it was for both because it said you can change between high pressure and high volume. High volume for tires, and high pressure for suspension.

If not, then my bad

Anyone seen either the Axiom or Serfas models in a LBS in the Vancouver area?

I forgot to mention that Cannondale has one too, but the gauge is digital. I'm thinking that having something that will be exposed to rain require batteries isn't a good idea. Along with Westwood, BSP also carries it.

The Axiom one looks good. I never knew such things existed!

Please report back with a mini-review when/if you get one.

I already have one, but it must have been one of the first ones as it doesn't have a gauge. My brother bought it for me as a gift from the Cove probably 5 years ago.

It works fine, although changing it from shock to tire takes a bit of fiddling to get it to come apart.

I just need to find a LBS that actually carries it.

Most LBS don't seem to know they exist either.

Pumping up a large volume DH type tire takes a long time. Most times I've used it have been on AM type tires and it works fine.

you dont need a gauge. pump until the shock seal blows then back off half a turn.

Being an agoraphobic adrenaline junkie would be pretty convenient, because you could get your rush from just going to the store to get some milk instead of having to jump off a mountain or out of an airplane.

rock shox makes one, called the Boxxer Dual Action, it has a removable gauge, t-handle and does both tires and shocks (as well as both valve types).

LOL! Thanks! Remind me not to let you work on my bikes.

One of the guys at the Cove was telling me about that pump, but they didn't have one to sell (unless I wanted to buy a new fork to go along with it…)
