Serfas Women’s Bicycle Floor Pump (Product Review and Giveaway)

04 Mar

During the course of the year I ride with several different cyclists, both male and female, and I always like to hear their opinions about bicycle products. I am a MAMIL (middle-aged man in Lycra) and it seems like nearly all bike products were made with men like me in mind. Last year one of the ladies I was riding with gave me a 30-minute lecture on how most companies don’t understand the needs of female cyclists. To be quite honest, it was a subject I had never given much thought to before. However, when the folks at Serfas sent me one of their Women’s Bicycle Floor Pumps to review I realized that some companies do understand female cyclists after all.

Serfas Women's Bicycle Floor Pump

Serfas Women’s Bicycle Floor Pump

While there are some very tall women in the world, the bottom line is that, on average, men are taller than women. A bicycle floor pump designed for the average man is going to be too tall for the average female. The Serfas WFP-200 Women’s Bicycle Floor Pump is 22″ tall, which is eight inches shorter than the standard floor pump I have in my garage. This lower stand over height allows for people of short stature to use the pump with ease—the shortened barrel provides greater leverage.

An easy to read dial sits at the top of the pump

Another nice feature of this pump is the easy to read dial—it sits up at the top of the pump instead of near the floor (the older you get the more you will appreciate this). This pump is rated to go up to 160 psi, but since I don’t have any bike tires that need that high of a pressure I only tried the pump out to 120 psi. This pump has an alloy barrel with sturdy alloy base and weighs 3.35 pounds (1460 grams).

The pump head handles both Presta and Schrader valves

In addition to the pump head that adjusts to both Presta and Schrader valves, this floor pump also includes a needle so you can also use it inflate volleyballs and basketballs, along with an adapter so you can inflate a beach ball. The ergonomic handle on this pump makes it very comfortable to use. Ladies, even if you don’t like the pink color and floral design of this floor pump, you will have to appreciate the fact that your husband or boyfriend won’t be borrowing it!

The Serfas Women’s Bicycle Floor Pump retails for $45 and is available from the Serfas Website and most bike shops in America. You can also find this floor pump at a few places you might have expect, like Sears and Camping World (catalog and Internet sales only). This product comes with a limited lifetime warranty against manufacturer’s defects in material and workmanship.

While this product functions flawlessly, I don’t exactly need a pink floor pump in the Man Cave (my garage). So, I have one Serfas Women’s Bicycle Floor Pump in perfect condition that I am going to give away to some lucky reader. To enter the contest for the floor pump pictured above all you have to do is pick a number between 1,000 and 1,250 and enter it in the comment section below (you don’t actually have to make a comment). The contest ends at midnight (CST) on Friday, March 8, 2013. After the contest closes I will use a random number generator to pick the winning number. If no one has the exact number the person with the number closest to, but not over, the winning number will get this Serfas Women’s Bicycle Floor Pump. In case two or more people chose the same number the first person to pick the number will be the winner. This contest is for U.S. residents only and only one entry per household allowed. When the contest is over I will publish the results in the comments section of this article. I will send this product to the winner via U.S. Mail at my expense.

    Honest, a floor pump does not need to be pink to market to women. No one sees it. It is appreciated that it has a shorter end for better leverage. I’m 5′ 1″ @98 lbs. or so. Have been cycling for last 22 yrs. as my main form of transportation…so pumps mean something to me.

    1103 – my bike has been hanging out on my porch for a while now and it definitely is going to need some air before I use it again! I quite like that it is pink! My bf always acquires random things of mine (think snow brush…) but I don’t think he would take this!

    • All Seasons Cyclist

      The pink pump would definitely keep most guys from stealing it (or even using it for that matter).

    Pink it and shrink it!

    Actually, I was given this pump a few years ago and use it for everything, which may have more to do with the fact that I lost our other pump than anything. And, the small size is handy, but you also have to pump a LOT to get something up to full volume.

  33. 16incheswestofpeoria

    March 4, 2013 at 3:05 PM

    1199. If this short pump proves to be a hit with women, well, great. But if it were also available in different finishes, Serfas might sell it to both men and women and gain a reputation for thoughtful, ergonomic design.

    After all, why make so many different pumps but only call out one for use by women? Shouldn’t there logically be only one men’s pump?

    1097. I like the idea that the actual design of the pump has been considered to be more suitable for women who are in general smaller than men. However, why pink? Why do so many brands assume that women want something that works better for them AND is pink?

    • All Seasons Cyclist

      March 6, 2013 at 12:46 AM

      I am sure if the women of the world united and demanded a certain color that manufacturers would produce it. However, I don’t want to be in the room when the voting takes place. 🙂

    I don’t live in the US so can’t enter the competition, but even if I did I don’t think I’d want it. For starters, I have a real problem with women-specific products being pink (especially that shade of pink) Why?? Do they think we all walk around dreaming of being a Disney princess?? And secondly…I have a regular floor pump and it works just fine for me. Maybe I’ve missed something, but I’ve never been aware of being too short to use it properly. I’m 5’3″ so I’m not exactly tall.

    • All Seasons Cyclist

      March 6, 2013 at 12:47 AM

      Obviously women are divided on the color choice, but I assure you that anyone under 5’4″ will get better leverage with a shorter pump.

  38. melissakoski

    March 4, 2013 at 7:01 PM

    I agree with the pink being a little over the top, but the write up reminded me I did not grab my pump when I moved a few month ago and probably won’t be able to get it back… a great thing to remember because I pick up my new mountain bike Tuesday! Now if only the remaining foot of snow would hurry up and melt.

    I’d say I love pink if that made the number generator more biased in my favor though! (:

    Love your giveaways!

    whoa, that IS a whole lotta pink & flower power! I do like how the dial sits up high, especially since I tend to pump tires in the dark since I always do so the night before a ride (don’t know why, maybe lazy?)

    • All Seasons Cyclist

      March 6, 2013 at 12:49 AM

      A woman after my own heart! I also pump the tires the night before a ride — I slightly over-inflate so it will be perfect in the morning.

    That looks like a fantastic product; and I’m on the short side even for a woman, so the height of our fantastic but standard floor pump is a great deterrent to my using it. Your comment about ease of reading the dial also struck a chord!

    March 5, 2013 at 9:45 PM

    1111 will be my guess. I know the standard bike philosophy of “shrink it and pink it” for women’s gear. Unfortunately, part of that isn’t bad. I am failry average height and weight for a woman in the US (5’5″ and 165lb) and I like my smaller bike, the medium sized Timbuc2 bag, the Rapha messenger bag, all which are generally just a bit smaller than my husband’s gear. The pink isn’t horrible, but if the companies went with more gender neutral colors I think it would attract even more people. Or better yet, talk to Pantone and see what colors are trending. Emerald is this year I think, and Tangerine was last year (or green and orange, rather.) A multitude of colors is more expensive when making a new product, but options are nice. Options I think, is the -key- to developing gear for women. Thank you for the giveaway! I would rock that pump for sure! The top dial is awesome.

    • All Seasons Cyclist

      I think more colors would be great (and I’ve used Pantone colors in printing for many years). However, a product like this probably has limited sales to begin with and I would imagine it would be cost prohibitive to make it available in other colors.

  50. Irish Katie

    March 5, 2013 at 11:27 PM

    I am not in need of a pump, so again will refrain from entering (one day I will … I promise!) I have 2 floor pumps, and 2 bike pumps. (Jaysus…I am becoming a pump hoarder….pllleeasseee don’t make me into a water bottle hoarder haha. I will keep mentioning the water bottle thing…because…seriously…how many do you have again?!?!?!? lol)

    I do like the shorter height pumps. At 5’2″ … I do think it makes a difference. I was tempted to rip on the pink think…but that was not your focus…and you even realized yourself that is sort of..who cares about the colour.

    One of the things I DO like, is the red marker thing…so you don’t even have to look at the numbers…but just pump until it hits the red marker. Mine does not have that marker…so I think now I will put a little paint mark next to it.

    • All Seasons Cyclist

      March 6, 2013 at 12:41 AM

      From reading the comments above it appears that women either love or hate pink. The truth is that most people will never take the pump out of their garage anyway, so what difference does it make? The lower stand over height is important though.

      • Irish Katie

        March 6, 2013 at 7:37 AM

        Ohhh … I thnk we will need to ask Mrs. All Season the colour question. She can be the tie-breaker haha. But nods…the height would make a difference. I wonder,why don’t they make floor pumps 2-way like the ones that are portable. The one I keep in my bike bag pumps air when the stroke goes in or out. With the two floor pumps I have, air only gets pumped when I plunge the handle. Not that I am ever in a rush when filling my tires mind you … I was just wondering if you knew.

        • All Seasons Cyclist

          March 7, 2013 at 11:53 AM

          Mrs. All Season liked the color. And by the way, Mrs. All Season is a Girly girl and Mr. All Seasons is very grateful for that.

  51. Jerk Alert!

    March 6, 2013 at 12:48 AM

    1234. All I kept seeing is how the pump is pink…and then I read the comment by Irish Katie and re-read your post and got over it. I have never owned a floor pump because I am lucky enough to live somewhere that is surrounded by bike shops with lovely people who make sure my bike is road worthy for free.

    This seems lazy but I really don’t trust myself when it comes to my own safety when I cycle. I recently bought a small hand pump from one of them to take out cycling with me and I realised I couldn’t even remember the last time I pumped up my own tires and apologised to them.

    My whole fear of maintaining my own bike comes from when one of my pedals fell off during a blistering hot day in the middle of nowhere near Loch Lomond and I just kept thinking how it was my own fault because I had built the bike myself haha! Matters were made worse to to the fact that google maps kept telling my sister to drive into fields when she was trying to find me and there were no road names and no signs to help figure out where I was. Never have I felt more useless.

    I feel that the fact I actually went out and bought a hand pump is a step in the right direction though if I am going to take cycling seriously again. And the fact that companies are actually making headway into catering for woman when it comes to gear for woman is awesome. As long as all of it isn’t pink…

    • All Seasons Cyclist

      March 6, 2013 at 12:58 AM

      Even if you don’t know how to use a hand pump it is great to have it with you — if you are stuck by the side of the road someone will probably offer to help you, but if you don’t have a pump and a patch kit you are out of luck anyway. You really ought to take the pump to your local bike shop and ask them to show you how to use it.

    • Irish Katie

      March 6, 2013 at 7:41 AM

      *wavies* … I saw my name and had to reply lol. One other thing you can do is check at your bike store…or perhaps a bicycle club…sometimes they give free fix-it clinics. And even if you never fix it yourself, it helps your confidence in biking nod nods…and also helps motivate you to bike more! (And also, then you can comment to All Season here and make believe like you know what you are talking about haha…works for me. I have him totally bamboozled!)

    March 7, 2013 at 11:48 AM

    Pink shmink, who cares…. I think I’m an average-height female, even slightly heavier than I should be – but if you can give me a pump that where I don’t have to jump up & get my entire body-weight onto the thing to get my tyres to 120 – I would love it! The one we have here is 25inches high and I struggle with it like this, just as I have with previous pumps we had in Australia (I don’t know how tall they were).

    Disappointed that I can’t enter as I’m not a US resident. Damn.

    Incidentally, All of the floor pumps we’ve had (2 in Australia and 1 here) have the dial at the top too, I imagine it would be very inconvenient if they didn’t.

    The color is fixable. The dial and the height may be worth it and I realized that since I’m not into pink there are options of paint that can fix the color issue. My pump does see public eyes as I also camp on occasion with my MTB club and the pump and tools come out.

    • All Seasons Cyclist

      March 9, 2013 at 11:31 PM

      It wouldn’t take much effort to paint the pump. Another alternative would be Duct Tape — it now comes in all sorts of colors and designs. On the other hand, my wife thought the pink color was perfect to begin with (and who am I to disagree with her?).

      • stumblingtowardgrace

        March 11, 2013 at 6:42 AM

        Dang I didn’t win. But I may still have to get one because I’m a girly girl, love pink, and am fairly short. Taller than Mrs All Seasons but still short enough for this pump.

      Some women don’t like the color of the pump, but it does have several great features that make it worth the effort to find.
