Growing up we always had a Silca floor pump in the garage and I remember the day I got my first Silca frame pump. Was and still is made in Italy. The only thing cooler would have been a matching paint job with my Basso Gap. Today I received a new Silca pump for a project we are working on. Telescoping at 99 grams with carbon fiber barrel. Silca is the official pump of the Freeman Transport Team, or it would be if we had one.
