Product Description
Pista Floor Pump by Silca
The iconic Silca Pista floor pump has been a staple of the serious cyclist since its introduction in the 1920's. The classic aesthetics and its ability to be easily rebuilt has allowed many cyclists to keep the Pistas in their arsenal for many decades. The modern Pista preserves the best qualities of the original pump while making some thoughtful improvements. If you're looking for an upgrade over your existing pump or even your first one, go ahead and consider the Pista Floor Pump, it's a solid investment.First off, Silca improved the gauge so it has +/-3-percent accuracy versus the original Pista's +/-5-percent. This ensures your tire pressure is repeatable with each use and your ride remains consistent. Silca adds aluminum reinforcements to the base housing protecting the gauge against damage from impacts which preserves its accuracy. A new chuck assembly works with both Presta and Schrader valves and includes a new bleed button for easy chuck removal.The handle mirrors the original 1962 model made of Bakelite, an early plastic, with two hose grooves allowing the pump to lay flat in your trunk or toolbox. Silca now crafts the handle from Ash wood. It's incredibly strong allowing it to be lathe turned to exact tolerances so it fits comfortably in your hand. Full metal construction adds durability for many years of flawless performance and reliability. The steel barrel and piston shaft have been upgraded from the original adding linear self-lubricating glide bushings for increased smoothness as you air up to its 200 PSI maximum, while the larger foot adds stability reducing rocking. Silca did stick with a classic feature, its trademark 3mm thick, durable leather piston washer that Silca has sourced from the same factory in Milan.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
