I hope my new invention helps make your cycling easier!

Hello Everyone,
 I invented the Rapido Pro Pump Head in an effort to simplify the use of the common floor pump head with schrader and presta valves. I wanted to develop something with one hand functionality and I think I have achieved it. I would very much appreciate your input. I have put together a Kickstarter campaign and should have these in production by July if all goes well.

Assuming a) you make your kickstarter goal, b) the pump head works the way it's supposed to and c) the selling price is about $25 you should be successful.  Right now by far the best pump head I know of is the Hirame but it's Presta-only and sells for $60 to $75.

I'm also a backer at the $29 level.  Apparently the campaign has met it's financial goal so now we wait for the product to be delivered.  I hope it works as promised.
