hand pump for bicycles - mini review

N got a hand-pump. But it needed some work before it could be used. The nozzle had to be opened, and the washer had to be turned around to fit our type of cycles.

The pump itself is small and light, but because of its lack of tubing, the ergonomics of hand pumping are a bit awkward. My arms are clearly not strong enough. So this pump is not useful for me. Floor pumps are fine for me, though. 

The usage of the pump also had a gotcha. The nozzle has to be fixed to the cycle tube's valve, and the pump has to be locked as below, for effective pumping.
