G4Free Mini Bike Pump - Professional Review

The G4Free Mini Bike Pump

lightweight ball road and bicycle pump

The G4Free Mini Bike Pump was sent to me for the purpose of this review and after several months of testing the pump, I can tell you that it is on par with similar bike pumps of the same design and price-point.

The G4Free Mini Bike Pump comes complete with:

  • 2 Ball Needles
  • A Bicycle Frame Mounting Kit
  • An easy-to-use floor pump design.
  • And a valve that fits on both Schrader and Presta bike tubes

Plus, this small hand pump can reach a maximum pressure of 7 bar or 130 psi, which is more than enough to get your bike tires inflated and ready to ride.

What I like most about this pump is:

  • The floor pump design makes it super easy to pump air into your bike tires. Unlike other bicycle hand pumps, this pump is fast and easy to use.
  • It’s super easy to switch between the Presta and Schrader valve options. If you have a bicycle with Schrader tubes, simply leave the valve head in the position shown in the photo below. But if you have Presta bike tires, simply unscrew the black valve cap and then attach the hose to your tubes as you would with any other bike pump.
  • It’s also a lightweight pump, meaning it won’t weigh your bicycle down too much.

Unfortunately, there are a few things I don’t like about the G4Free Mini Bike Pump:

  • Because you have to twist the valve cap onto your bike tubes, it can take quite a bit of time and effort to get the pump screwed on properly. Other (easier to use) bike pumps attach to the tube by simply placing the pump valve over the top of the tube and then locking the pump in place. This pump has to be screwed into the tube, and I find this both time consuming and annoying.
  • The length of the tubing on this pump is also too short. By the time you get the pump attached to your bike tube and then position the floor of the pump on the ground, the tubing is either too short or stretched incredibly too tight.

The length of the G4Free Mini Bike Pump‘s tubing doesn’t really bother me that much, and if the attachment valve were easier to get on my tubes, I would give this pump a much higher review, but because it is so difficult to screw the valve cap onto your tubes, I would give the G4Free Mini Bike Pump a rating of 4 out of 5.
