    Any idea about when there will be one with a BAR scale ?

    The rest of the world is now using BAR and not PSI :wink:

    I am hoping this calendar year. We have to work through the initial order first. I am going to explore what we can do to change the graphic over the pressure gauge before another production run.

    Hang in there!

    How about offering a BAR scale sticker at cost (shouldn't be more than a few dollars?) to those of us who are waiting for it? I'd order one from the initial order if I had a BAR scale sticker I could add afterwards.

    In the mean time...just multiply the PSI x .069 & ya get the bar :1drink equivalent.

    I have had to use mine once so far. I plugged a friends tubeless and aired it up. Worked great!

    I ran it off my SAE charging cable. The inline fuse on my SAE cable blew almost instantly. It was only a 3A so I swapped to a 5A and have had no problems at all since.

    Nice to use it on someone else's bike! Yeah, not sure why manufacturers put a 3a fuse on some of those circuits. Nothing but a GPS draws that little.

    Man, where the heck is spring this year??? :huh

    That is decent travel time to Alberta. Now I feel bad about my spring time angst. Bet it is worse where you are...

    Hi Rob,
    Just placed an order for the ADV Rider special. Not sure if my notes to you were saved or not, but I requested the cig lighter plug to be swapped out for the DIN (BMW/Powerlet) style plug. :1drink

    Looking forward to consolidating. Never had a problem with my Slime pump (have used it 3 times - worked great), but the loose wires/hose will not be missed.

    Package received! Everything looks great and well-made. Hopefully, I'll never need it, lol. :D Easily a far superior product to the Slime pump I am replacing!

    Used it for the first time yesterday...aired up 2 tube tires, took 5 mins each to go from 0 psi to 45 psi in 5 mins. Didn't get hot at all it just pumped away & the built in pressure gauge is accurate. Read 45 psi & my analog tire gauge read 45 psi too. Great product.:D

    After searching this site and reading all the posts on pumps in multiple threads, I realized there are many opinions, claims and options. I just ordered a Slime pump last week from Amazon and I'm sure it would work just fine for what I intended, which is an emergency air source when nothing else is available.

    What really stood out to me in my search is Rob seems like the kind of person I would enjoy riding with. A nice guy who understands customer service and stands behind his product. To me, that means a lot and I wish there were more people like him in the industry.

    I feel $70 is not extremely expensive for a pump considering the cost of everything else (I just paid a lot more than that for a butt pad) and staying away from Starbucks for a month will make up for it.

    Rob,

    I just ordered one of your MiniPro pumps tonight and will carry it when motorcycle camping. The Slime (when it arrives) will be used for the kids bikes and my riding mower.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    PS... I would like to suggest some type of discount for veterans. Even a few bucks as it's more about the gesture than the actual dollar amount. I'm happy with the price I paid using the ADV Rider discount, but for vets not on the site I think it would be appreciated. Just a thought!
