Pretty Geeky, Bluetooth pump from Silca

Silca is adding a Bluetooth sensor to its Tattico mini-pump so you can get your tyre pressure just right when you’re away from home.

You’re scoffing at the idea? Well, it certainly falls within the ‘do I really need that?’ category, but then, so does a lot of other technology in the cycling world. Plus, the display on a smart phone does look very clear.

Just because you can, doesn't mean you should .

............nor will I. TPMS on my bikes is looking down at tire patch on the ground if the rolling resistance on a given surface feels unreasonable. Let's see gadgets feel 5h1t.....can't, can only measure and report....complete lack of insight or intuition. No need. No want.

While I like the idea, I use a tire sealant in my tubulars and carry a CO2 cartridge and a full sizes frame pump.

I only want useful Bluetooth pumps; I tell it which tire to air up to what pressure and it does the work.
