Question about Topeak Morph Pump

1 Answer

I have just purchased a Topeak Mountain Morph pump, which can be used with both Presta/Scrader valves. I have a presta valve on my bike, but am not able to inflate my bike. Not sure if I am doing something wrong. Have no manual with this pump and am new to cycling. Your help is appreciated. B. McCormick

  1. Rotate the wheel so the valve is resting just above the floor. Remove the valve cap.

  2. Unscrew the locking nut on the valve stem. Quickly press down the stem to loosen the seal. You should hear air escaping when the stem is pushed in--if you do not, loosen the nut and try again.
  3. Press the pump head onto the valve and flip the locking lever to make a seal. You'll hear air escape, but it should stop after you've locked the lever. If air continues to leak out, remove the pump head and reattach it.
  4. Make two pump strokes and listen for air moving into the tire. If the pump handle becomes hard to press down after only a few strokes, or if the pressure gauge elevates extremely quickly, remove the pump head and repeat Step 3.
  5. Inflate the tire to its recommended pressure. Remove the head by unlocking its lever and quickly pulling it off the valve stem. Secure the valve's locking nut and cap.

Hi there i boufht this pump and have found that i have two different valves on my bike one is a normal one and one is a schraieder, how do i chnage the pump attachment so i can pump up the schraieder one?


You can buy an inexpensive adapter to fit on either valve stem to convert it from Presta to Schrader or from Schrader to Presta - whichever is better suited to your pump and/or your other bikes. If you want to go with Schrader as your standard (the fatter one) you can replace the tube on your wheel that has the Presta valve - but you have to enlarge the hole in the rim. If you do that be sure to make the edge of the enlarged hole nice and smooth with sandpaper. If you want to standardize on Presta, you will need a small bushing to make the existing hole in the rim smaller. I hope you found this helpful. Good luck, Al K

How do i set up the pump to inflate a presta valve tyre?


If it is not a Presta pump, then you will need an adapter. These adapters usually run for less than a dollar and are easy to use. You can just screw it onto the Presta valve and then it converts it to a Schrader. You can see what they look like HERE. They should be available at any bicycle, camping or hiking store. Good luck and be safe riding! (Helmets are your friend)

How do you inflate this tube with the presta valve?


The following link is a good explanation of inflating a presta valved tube if you have a pump with a presta valve head.

If you have an older pump that does not have a presta valve head, you can purchase a schrader valve adapter from your local bike shop that screws onto the presta valve and will allow you to utilize a pump with a schrader head.

Cannot get my brand new Topeak Joe Blow Sport pump to lock onto a Presta valve. I have locked the lever down, but it does not hold the valve. It is as if the Presta valve is too small for the pump...


They should be designed to fit both styles of valve, but you need to reverse the seal.
you should be able to unscrew the end, remove the sealing rubber and a plastic fitting that pushes on the valve, replace them the opposite way around ,and they will fit the presta.

I need to buy a new pump for my bike


I reckon the best pump around today is the Topeak Road Morph. This is a minature track pump with foot pedal and hose with pressure gauge built in to connector. If you have road tyres this pump has to be top of your list.
