Top-peak Mini Shock pump

This is a super great pump for 90psi and up to 300psi with only a few pump actions, fits Schrader valve on A-bike wheels, gauge, flexible tube and compact too.

Obviously it is intended for pumping high pressure rock shox and air suspensions on mountain bikes but it serves very effectively the purpose of having a gauge, a bendy tube for attaching to the delicate little A-bike inner tube valves and reaches the desired pressure easily. Most decent bicycle pumps (available in Australia) are for Presta valves or have a flippable converter in a fixed nozzle that's hard to fit inside the rim of the A-bike wheels. Japanese bikes seem to favour Schrader valves like car/motorcycle tyres.
