I have a Silca chuck spliced on the end of my Zefal floor pump and I can pump them up just fine. It borders on too short, but is do-able. You could get some extenders.

my Topeak "Joe Blow" to seat. I confess that I tried it only once, with an uninflated tire, and maybe I just needed to push the valve through the little hole a little harder.
