Almost Ready to Ride

The new/old bike is almost ready to ride.  Today I purchased some new tires, tubes, brake pads, and a bike pump.  Unfortunately the pump (and I should have known this) is not strong enough to handle putting 110 psi into the tubes.  At a certain point the air starts hissing out from the seals in the pump.  I have a feeling it would be fine for a mountain bike or beach cruiser, but not for low volume/high pressure set ups. 

So, tomorrow, I will head back to the bike shop with the pump packed back up and hope they accept returns/exchanges for the stand up floor pump that is twice as expensive.  If not, well, Ill be selling a hand pump on craigslist in Paris.
