Nashbar L'Orange V.2 Floor Pump - G.O.T.D. April 2013 - Bicycling Magazine
Every cyclist needs a top quality floor pump and in that realm you'll be incredibly well-served with the Nashbar L'Orange V.2 Floor Pump. Not only does it's stunningly orange hue stand out from the crowd, performance-wise it's a marvel of efficiency and sheer pumping power. With plenty of pumps at our disposal here at Nashbar, the L'Orange V.2 is the go-to inflator of choice for quick, effortless inflation - all in an incredibly well-constructed, built to last package.

But don't take our word for it, check out why this Nashbar floor pumped was awarded Bicycling Magazine's G.O.T.D. award in April 2013:

"The new V.2 improves on the features we loved in the original L'Orange, a pump we praised for its ability to move large volumes of air. The 28-inch tall barrel, combined with the long hose, also makes it easy reach bikes mounted in a repair stand.

"To improve durability, Nashbar gave the pump an alloy barrel, and easy-to-service O-ring style cup at the end of a large diameter plunger shaft. The cast aluminum, tripod-style base holds a large, easy-to-read gauge (bold numbers on a white background) with rotating bezel, which makes it easy to hit your preferred pressure. The V.2 also has a turned wood handle that feels great in your hand, a locking alloy pump head, and improved hose clip.

"The hose clip and pump head were my favorites of the new features. I'm left handed and often place my left foot on the base to stabilize it while pumping with only my left hand. The new clip is reversible, so users can choose which side of the pump the hose resides on when not in use, making it easy to grab when you're ready to inflate a tire. It may seem a small detail, but adapting to the user's preferred ergonomics is a nice benefit--one you'll appreciate the more your use your pump. The head still features a release valve to easily lower tire pressure if you pump too much, but it no longer automatically adjusts between presta and Schrader valves. Instead, you get a simpler--and more durable--reversible model that easily grabs even short valve stems. To switch between the two types of valves, users simply unscrew the end of the head and flip it over. Each side is engraved with the type of valve it's meant for, eliminating confusion. The new head design was simple to use and easily locked on to valves with one hand, a bonus when you're inflating a team's worth of bikes."--Mike Yozell

        I bought this because of the reviews, and I needed a new pump. At first when I took it out of the box I didn't know what to think of it. It felt kind of cheap. THEN I used it, it worked great. The hose is long enough you don't have to move the pump when you change which tire you are filling. It made quick order of filling my road bike tires to 145. The quick swap end from presta to schrader is great.

        Comments about Nashbar L'Orange V.2 Floor Pump - G.O.T.D. April 2013 - Bicycling Magazine:

        I really liked this pump. I have owned it for a couple years and use it to air up our two road bikes 2-3 times a week. However, it seems the valve head will no longer clamp securely onto a presta valve stem. Now my wife has to hold the valve head onto the valve stem while I pump in order to air up the tire. Otherwise the rest of the pump has held up very well and is built to last. If I could replace just the valve head (that clever presta/schrader adapter) then I would give this pump five stars. If you use your pump several times a week year round, like I do, then you will get two or three years use max before it needs to be replaced.

          I purchased this pup in June, in January I went to check my tires and the gauge no longer worked on the pump. I contacted Nashbar who said they would replace it if I return it first... It will cost $53 to ship it back! not worth it, wont be buying from here again

                First and foremost, it looks cool! Wooden handle even. Second, it's a quality product. It works like a good floor pump should. The valve head is a very simple, two sided affair. If it says Presta/Dunlop, unscrew it and turn it over to fill your Schrader stuff. Looks to be well constructed and, with a modicum of care, will be something you hand down to the kids. I'm unsure of the gauge as my old reliable says it's showing about 4# higher. But that's consistent on everything from my 10# riding mower to my 90# road bike. I'll just overfill everything 4#. Seems to send a bunch of air on one pump too. For the price, you can't go wrong. And you may talk the wife into letting it have a place in the décor. Win, win in my book
