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

              Absolutely the best pump i've ever owned. It takes a little effort to start pumping but not a big deal. The long stroke moves a lot of air so filling is quick and the gauge is accurate. Also, disengaging is clean, no air loss!

                My old pump kept popping off when I was pumping up the tire. Buying a new head was going to cost as much as I paid for this pump. It is well made, has an excellent connector and a good long hose so I can pump up my tires while it is on the car bike rack.

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

                      I've had this pump for about a year and it's been used to inflate many bike tires, Schrader and Presta valves and numerous car tires. The pump itself is excellent, easy to use and moves a lot of air. The head is awful, couldn't be worse. I explained all the problems with the design in a review in Aug '15, but having to push the head onto a valve while pulling up and rotating the locking handle is bad design, makes no sense.
                      The head on my pump would never engage a valve correctly without high force and was almost impossible to remove after filling the tire. Lubing it didn't make any difference.
                      The aluminum threads in the schrader/presta adapter eventually got stuck and required pliers to turn. Lube helped this and the sticky o rings a bit.
                      The last straw was last week, when switching from Presta to Scrader, the insides of the adapter sprung out and flew into my lawn, gone forever, no way to get air into a tire after that.
                      Fix was to cut off the complicated head, throw it away and buy a Scipa Schrader chuck and add my trusty brass Presta adapter when needed. This works fantastic, push on, it locks; squeeze lock lever and pull off after pumping. Vastly simpler and far easier.
