Everyone always asks me what’s the one product I liked at Interbike and I never really have a clear answer. This year however, I was most impressed with one accessory.

Silca’s undergone a bit of a domestic production revival.

Their products are now made in the USA. From Co2 chucks to this SuperPista Ultimate Floor Pump.

This one’s not for the bargain seekers, but I will say, it’s a damn fine floor pump. Every single piece is machined and finished. It’s like the Rolex of bike pumps. See more (including the price) at Silca.

      I mean, when you see one in person, you’ll see what I mean. Especially holding it next to a Lezyne or other higher-end pump.

    I believe this is a premium pump, also US made, so if you got the cash, get one. Support your economy!

    Don’t want to highjack this post, just saying, if you’re looking for a quality, life-time pump, you might want to consider this one.
    Every bit can be replaced.

    If it was bedazzled then maybe…

    Not sure if I could afford/justify this, but I appreciate what they’re doing. As far as the price/Country of Origin issue… get back to me when you’re willing to work for Chinese wages. The margin on this is probably next to nonexistent unlike a Taiwanese pump that cost a buck-and-a-half to make and runs $80. Plus, it just doesn’t feel like a cynical effort… unlike, say, Budnitz who build boutique for boutique’s sake

  • Ultra_Orange

    You are a dirty ass tease, not listing the price.

    *a few moments later*

    OH MY SWEET JESUS!!!!!

    Think you could talk them into making a poor folks edition, so swap out all the really nicely milled aluminum for some good old stamped american steel. All about the USA but I have to admit I’m on a Chinese budget.

    7lbs weight (!) Not for me. I prefer a pump that’s easy to move around. On the other hand it’s stunningly beautiful, and US-made. With my income I’m good with my Lezyne for now.

    Not completely made in the US.
    Kinda makes it that featured comment seem ironic: “As far as the price/Country of Origin issue… get back to me when you’re willing to work for Chinese wages. The margin on this is probably next to nonexistent unlike a Taiwanese pump that cost a buck-and-a-half to make and runs $80.”
