" This tape is outstanding, and I mean outstanding, wrapped on first time is very soft and gives great comfort and grip, I ordered some more expensive stuff as well, just in case, but I've sent it back as this lifeline tape is perfect for what I wanted. Even the finishing tape stuck on first time, looks brilliant (red and black - Darth Maul effect) - this must make me faster!!! "

The Joe Blow Max II is a great performing track pump that is superb value for money. providing efficiency and accuracy throughout its pressure range, the whole way up to 120 psi.
 

Which way do you press the lever when you attach the head to the tyre valve?

For some reason the instructions which are provided with the product don't explain very well how to use it. Have a look at this video instead.
Video Question:

I push it the opposite way - away from the tyre, works a treat
