Re: [IPk] Re: broken pump

Hi Everyone
 Started pumping this week everything going ok so far.
Paul returned from his trip yesterday and had had a great time! 
Unfortunately his pump didnt and it seems he fell off the mountain bike and 
then i dont know what happened, but his screen looks like its leaked ink and 
the D-tron plus will not do anything. Luckily he had a spare pump which was 
all set up so he could carry on pumping.
If the pump is a right off, could we choose a different pump to replace it? 
Does anyone know.
