StarStarStarStarStar My featherweight savior pump

by
Ownership: more than a year
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

Light, easy to attach to the frame in a very out of the way place, and there when I need it. I have saved my own bacon and that of several fellow riders with this little guy. Why in the world does anyone use CO2 when a pump this good is so light and easy to carry? Of course it is not the same as my lovely JoeBlow floor pump (see that review too) but it works and has always been enough to get me home safely. That is all I want from a pump and I want a pump that is always there, not one I can forget or that runs out of "fuel".
A nice feature is the small hose that slips into the pump body and makes it much easier to get a good working angle on the pump.

Cons

None.

Other Thoughts

All environment arguments aside, I do not get it with the CO2. I tried it for a while and it was just too stressful to be fun. I am happy to give mine away to anyone who wants one. I will never use it again and will aways go for a small, well designed pump like this. This pump is the smallest of the 3 frame pumps I have and it goes on my lightest bike, of course. There may well be better ones out there but so far, I am more than satisfied. Keep your CO2 in your beverages!

Great size fits easily in jersey pocket.
Solid construction with critical metal parts.
Hose connection to valve stem.
Pumps up to full pressure - I ride at 120 psi

None from my perspective.

Other Thoughts

I've been carrying this pump for months and finally used it a couple days ago.
It worked flawlessly when I punctured on a long ride and needed to do a roadside repair.
It pumped up easily to 120 psi and didn't wear me out to get to that pressure.
Great pump with very smooth operation.
I fully recommend this pump to anyone -- absolutely the best minipump I have ever used.

StarStarStarStarStar Great Pump

Ownership: one year
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

This pump has served me very well for over a year now. I really like the small hose that comes out to the valve so that you are not putting pressure on the valve stem while pumping. It lets you freely choose your angle. This is the mountain version of the pump, and it's reasonably quick at getting air in the tire. Part of the handle has a rubberized grip which is good both while pumping and to keep the pump from slipping out of a jersey pocket. Compact form factor and lightweight. It's my go-to pump for any ride. It will work fine on road tires as well, until you get up to about 85+ psi, then it's quite difficult to pump.

Cons

difficult to inflate a road tire above ~85 psi

Other Thoughts

If you don't mind a larger / heavier pump, the Topeak mountain or road Morph is an awesome portable pump, with a foot stabilizer and flip-out pump handle. You almost don't need a floor pump with one of them around!
