Reply To: Filling a pcp using a hand pump
Hi Alex. I am 54 years old and weigh about 150 lbs. I have a Hill hand pump and would recommend that brand. I’ve pumped up the 500cc bottle to 250 bar on my FX Boss many times. Going to 220 bar on a 500 cc bottle should be no problem. Just take the advice of the technique (it’s all in the technique) and of not letting the pump heat up too much that others have mentioned in this thread. With a steady, SLOW, pace though, the pump doesn’t heat up that much. At least that was my experience with the Hill.
