Best List: Magic Flute bike pump by Portland Design Works

The magic of the Magic Flute is its ability to do two things with equal aplomb.

On the one hand, it is a solidly built hand pump that lets you fill your bike tire the old-fashioned way. On the other, it is a handy CO2 cartridge adapter that lets you fill your tire quickly without the need for elbow grease.

For a guy like me, who likes to double-flat (or even sometimes triple-flat), this is a security blanket I don’t ever want to be without again. Luckily, its lightweight alloy construction and composite bracket make it easy to bring along on every ride.

The Magic Flute is made by Portland Design Works, an Oregon company that crafts beautiful bicycle accessories that take function and aesthetics into consideration in equal parts.

Get your hands on the Magic Flute. You will not be disappointed next time you blow a tire.
