    Thank you ! Very useful video. I just learnt how to use the pump for my kids bicycle.

  4. Hi, great video! I recently purchased a Trek Allant+ 7S ebike with Presta valves on the tires. I had only used Schrader valves before so the video came in handy. I purchased your Bontrager Dual Charger Floor pump to use. The max pressure for my Schwalbe G-One tires is 54psi and they are 2.4" wide. Should I be using the HV or HP setting on the pump? And why is there a pressure release button by the Guage? Thank you.

  32. What if your tires are tubeless or if they have that blue liquid inside of them? @trek

  33. Kelly Anderson May 15, 2021 @ 1:51 am

    My piece of crap pump didn’t work, it kept falling off.

  34. Thanks, spent a day trying to figure it out. Thanks!!!

  35. I’m looking at the FAQ for the Dual Sport 2.
    It says I can ask a question, but there is no link or other way which I can see to ask a question.
    Not a user friendly webpage.
    My question is whether the Dual Sport 2 (3 & 4 also) come with Schrader or Presta valves.

  41. Hi, how to avoid losing air after detaching the pump from the tire

  42. MacStar Chicross May 15, 2021 @ 2:07 am

    You explain this very promptly and simply I really appreciate that! Lots of other tutorials gave useless information and made it very confusing.
