WHAT DOES BICYCLE PUMP MEAN IN ENGLISH?

bicycle pump

Bicycle pump

A bicycle pump is a type of positive-displacement pump specifically designed for inflating bicycle tires. It has a connection or adapter for use with one or both of the two most common types of valves used on bicycles, Schrader or Presta. A third type of valve called the Woods valve exists, but tubes with these valves can be filled using a Presta pump. Several basic types are available: ▪ Floor models or track pumps ▪ Frame mounted ▪ Compact or mini ▪ Foot operated ▪ Double action In its most basic form, a bicycle pump functions via a hand-operated piston. During the up-stroke, this piston draws air through a one-way valve into the pump from the outside. During the down-stroke, the piston then displaces the air from the pump into the bicycle tire. Most floor pumps, also commonly called track pumps, have a built in pressure gauge to indicate tire pressure. Electrically-operated pumps intended to inflate car tyres can in principle be used to inflate a bicycle tyre if the right type of connection is available. Some such pumps are designed to cut off before a suitable pressure, and will much underinflate the tyre.
