Open and ready for action

In a recent discussion about tire pressures, Yahoo! kickbiking mail-list member duggy recommended the Outdoors Frontier pump. Locating its website, we find that it’s a very portable foot-pump – so portable that it’ll fit, collapsed, into the palm of your hand.

Ready to travel

When it’s opened, it’s operated with two feet. It looks like a marvel of simplicity and rough-hewn elegance.

The product website itself is charmingly archaic, but that’s a good thing: the maker’s attention is, as it should be, on the product. (Who remembers the crude black-and-white print Wald bicycle parts catalogs from the seventies?)
