A cool-looking, long-lasting, and easy-to-use pump, the Serfas FP-200 comes in with high marks across the board. As with our other single head floor pumps, we found getting a good seal was a bit trickier than we would have liked, but it didn't occur enough to overshadow the stable base, easy to read, over-sized gauge, and overall super stylish design.

Our Analysis and Test Results
That said, while it didn't decrease in performance level, it also did not start out perfectly, with it being sometimes difficult to get a good seal onto both presta and schrader valves. The locking lever is super firm and seems to keep the head in good position, but we experience air leakage more often than we would have liked. We had the same experience with the other single-head pumps, such as the Blackburn Air Tower 2 and the Serfas TCPG, and experienced it less with some of the double-headed, valve-specific pumps like the Pedro's Prestige. Also, compared to the Air Tower 2 or the Topeak Joe Blow Sport 2, the Serfas handles were less comfortable for our hands and wrists.
