Great Idea, Horrible Execution. DOES NOT WORK.
DO NOT BUY THIS PUMP.
I've previously owned a Lezyne Road Drive pump that I've owned over 5 years and it's been decent. When I saw this version had a gauge, I was like Woah! I definitely need this!
The difference between what I had and what I wanted was the build quality. Mainly using metal vs. plastic. Gauge Drive used plastic parts where the Road Drive uses metal. Aside from that, they use metal parts to thread into plastic.
Second time using this pump, I handed it over to a friend and he was impressed by the gauge. Then it completely pulled out of the threading. I tried to thread it back in, and it worked some what, but he eventually used his own pump.
Today, I just finished a 40 mile ride up some mountains with a friend, and it did the same thing. In fact, it won't even pump the tire without flying off. Not only with the gauge metal parts not hold in the plastic, but the threading is completely worn now. I can push it in and pull it off. Then I noticed the Gauge Drive is riddled with plastic parts, making it light, but a piece of crap.
I've only used this pump 3 times, and it's now worthless. In fact, I'm considering no longer purchasing any Lezyne products. The first pump I owned, the Road Drive, is completely worn out from use along the shaft, heats up like crazy when pumping and has become more difficult to use the more times you use it.
Thank you for your feedback.
