A bike pump is a type of air pump that is used to inflate bicycle tires. Usually, a bike pump regardless of the type it is has an adapter or connection that is used along with valves. The two most common valves used are the Presta valve and the Schrader valve for bicycles. There is also a third type of valve that is less used called the Dunlop or Woods valve. Bike pumps come in different types depending on how they are used.
There are the Frame-mounted bike pumps, Blast/tubeless pump, Mini/compact pump, foot-operated pumps, and so on. The basic type of bike pumps operates with the aid of a hand-operated piston.
