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 just receive the pump. I had to replace my Joe Blow Sport that I had for 10 years. I agree with all the positive reviews. I wish I had purchased this pump instead of the Joe Blow.

          Great pump for the price - Comparison with V1

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

            I bought the V1 in 2011, and it still works like new. It's a big pump though, and I hate lugging it up and down the stairs, so I figured I'd get a second one for the basement. I was also so happy with the V1, that I was eager to try the "improved' version.

            Here are some of the advantages of the new version:
            Larger dial gauge
            Wooden handle
            Pump head attaches and detaches more easily and loses less air
            The needle on the gauge doesn't bounce when pumping or letting out air
            Lighter weight
            Wider, more stable base
            Lower price
            Longer hose
            Smaller pump head
            Supposedly the pump head can bite a shorter valve. This was an issue with the V1, but I haven't determined yet.

            Here are what I preferred about the V1:
            Nicer appearance
            Heavier
            Smoother action
            More volume per stroke
            Gauge at the top where it is easier to read

            Overall, I think that the V1 looked felt like a better piece of workmanship and was more pleasurable to use, however the V2 technically functions better.

                Having owned many different pumps in over 45 years of cycling, I can't ever recall a pump that delivers so much for so little. The clasp grips everything from threaded to smooth without any slippage or leaking. Pumping iis very efficient. Most important was how close the pump's pressure gauge compares to my tire pressure gauge. Every pump I've ever owned has been 10 to 15 pounds low and this gauge was within 2 to 3 pounds high.

                      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.
