Topeak was showing off their new JoeBlow Twin Turbo floor pump model featuring TurboBoost technology at the Sea Otter Classic. This new technology utilizes the push and pull of every stroke to fill the double chambers on the pump to maximize output and reduce tire inflation times. With a 200psi maximum pressure and high volume output, this would be a great addition to any home shop.

The JoeBlow Twin Turbo also features the new SmartHead DX1 full metal pump head with air release button and extra-long hose. Air pressure is easy to read thanks to a large 3″ analog gauge mounted at the top of the pump. Price is $200.

Topeak FlashStand MX

The FlashStand MX uses the hole in hollow cranksets to secure the bike in an upright position for light maintenance, washing and storage. Price is $70.

The new FlashStand MX is simple in design and extremely practical. The concept of a bike stand using the crank arm hole to hold a bike upright and secure is not new, but unlike some models the FlashStand MX folds up flat for easy storage. This is particularly useful for racers or adventure seekers who regularly travel with their bikes in a vehicle with limited cargo space. Size is 24.1″x 17.3″x 1.7″ (folded) and 17.7″x 16.5″x 15.9″ (open). Price is $70.
