The Topeak Joe Blow Sport. The max psi the gauge goes up to is 160. Is this adequate enough for all road tires(I am asking b/c I'm on a mountain bike w/slicks that don't require as much psi). I plan on purchasing my road bike in the near future and want to make sure this pump will suffice. Thanks!

The vast majority of tires are rated at 110 -120 or so lbs of pressure...

I bought the Joe Blow Sport earlier this year and found it very easy to use.It inflates to 120 lbs. very quickly with only minimal struggle around 120 lb. limit.I did have to return it to my LBS where I purchased it a few weeks ago because the guage went out.No problems yet with the new one.
Thanks - the both of you! (nm)jtferraro
