Can you return it? I had a 2 yr old specialized pump on which the gauge quit working. I took it into a different store in a different state without a receipt and asked if they could help me repair it or something... They gave me a new pump! I'm not familiar with Performance's return policy, but maybe if you walk it in and find a nice guy he'll work with you.
