Strengths:    Very efficient (until it breaks...)

Weaknesses:    Poor ergonomy.

I've used it maybe 2-3 times and it t broke. The piston moves very hard, it's almost impossible to pump.


Bottom Line:   
Don't buy it!

Strengths:    Nice and small and smart looking

Weaknesses:    hard to fasten on

Bottom Line:   
Fed up with other mini pumps I believed these reviews. After 1 wet weekend and a few power washes it became impossible to push. On pressing really hard it broke completely. Does not easily attach to presta valve unless its in your hand. Not happy. Had high hopes but disappointed.

Strengths:    Great quality, pumps great, good handle, lock on valve head, presta/ OR shrader, Looks great, lightweight, afforadable with quality!

Weaknesses:    NONE!

Bottom Line:   
Bottom line? BUY IT! You won't find a better pump for the price out there. This probably beats more expensive pumps anyways! I paid 17 bucks at pricepoint for it. 17! WOW!

Strengths:    High air flow
Durable materials
Ergonomically comfortable


Weaknesses:    Bit Heavy

Bottom Line:   
I bought this pump because it was recommended at the store one year ago. I thought it was over priced but I needed to buy a pump for that weekend trip.
I love this pump because even though it's not the lightest one like my friends have, it does not drain any ENERGY when I get a flat. It pump really fast, and I get the needed air pressure with 50% less strokes than my buddies. Now they ask for my pump when they need it HAHA.
Easy to switch from regular to presta valves, the handle is very comfortable and has a natural feeling to use all your energy.
I totally recommend it if you are not a weight freak.

Weaknesses:    -Seals
-Blackburn's customer support


Bottom Line:   

Seals cracked and died soon after purchase.
Supposed lifetime warranty on this product, but good luck ever getting anything out of Blackburn. Bad customer support if you ever need it...

Replaced the seals with O-rings scavenged from an old GT pump that had the head break, has been fine since.

3 Chilies for an ok product that needed a bit of help.
1 Chili for lack of customer support when it was needed.

Date Reviewed: December 8, 2008

Strengths:    Light and tight and just alright. Doesn't pinch hand with T-handle completely down. Nice. It pushes enough air to reflate 29ers soon enough.
I lost a part for this and called Blackburn and they were able to get me back up and on the trail in no time. How cool is that? I thought I was doomed to discard and buy new. Not even close. Thanks Blackburn.


Weaknesses:    It's not a floor pump pro but then it would weigh 3kg and stick out like a samurai sword. It could be carbon and have a pressure gauge but then it would be more $$-ing pesos.

Bottom Line:   
This is a great pack pump for big tires. You know you don't have time or patience to carry that little carbon weenie pump or six CO2s.

Strengths:    Low profile design works great for mounting on frame
Ability to use on both Presta and Schrader valves
Decent price


Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
Great pump, does the job. The only problem I've had was the handle fell off during a ride after about 3 years; make sure you check that it's tight now and again. I have done absolutely zero maintenance (it rides on the bottom of the frame) and generally ignore it completely and even with massive amounts of mud and pedalling through 2 feet of water it has never failed. Moves a decent amount of air for a hand pump, would recommend to anyone.

Date Reviewed: March 22, 2008

Strengths:    After 11 years the MMP-1 Mammoth MTN frame mountain pump still preforms flawlessly. Ate the start of each riding season I disassemble the unit and clean the seals and it's good to go for the entire season. Exccellent volume for a frame mounted pump, it will fill a 26X2.1 tube with little effort. Head easily switches between Presta and Schrader

The frame mounted clip with it's velcro strap has never failed to hold the pump in place through even the roughest riding conditions.


Weaknesses:    The ergonomics of the pump handle are a little clunky (this is an 11 year old pump, the newer models have much better ergonomics)

Bottom Line:   
This is an excellent frame mounted pump that I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.

Strengths:    Head actually works! Hasnt bent a presta yet. Mounds of power

Weaknesses:    Handle comes loose from barrel and ends up in the crank arm!

Bottom Line:   
Mount the pump w/ the handle up, then it wont vibrate loose and end up in the crank arm! Too bad it took a buddy telling me this rather than being smart enough to figure that one out on my own.......must have to be smarter than the pump!

Once that was done, never had a problem. Very reliable!

Strengths:    Unlike many mini pumps, this one can actually be used to pump up tires

Weaknesses:    Not as much volume as a full size frame pump

Bottom Line:   
My second Mammoth after a nonfunctional Crank Bros. and a few years of CO2 cartridges. First one was great. Blackburn make some of the best pumps, and most importantly head designs that work. Latest version has a cool, red anodized pump shaft and nice alloy thumblock. My Crank BRos. mini pump would never be able to seal on a presta valve, leading to no end of grief. In three months of spring, I easily spent more on CO2 cartridges than the price of a Mammoth Mtn. pump. Now I'm back to this great unit, and headed to Mammoth Mountain next month to celebrate.

Submitted by Ed W a Cross Country Rider from Helena, MT, USA

Date Reviewed: March 22, 2007

Strengths:    aluminum shaft, great volume, has worked everytime.

Weaknesses:    Have to switch nozzle around to switch between presta and schrader. Nozzle rubber "clings" to schrader valve threads making it very hard to remove. Had to rebuild once because of dirt/grime buildup from keeping the pump mounted to the frame.

Bottom Line:   
I bought this pump when I first got into mountain biking again around 5 years ago. the LBS guy showed me less expensive pumps, then showed me the Blackburn Mammoth Comp and said "this will be the last frame pump you'll have to buy". Assuming I never lose it, I think this is an accurate statement. I now keep it safely in my camelback to avoid dirt/grime buildup. It is still just a frame pump, so expect some exercise to pump up a tire to pressure. I use a CO2 pump for races, but this pump for every other flat on the trail. Great value, the only real complaint is having to switch the nozzle around for presta and schrader valves.

Strengths:    Works great the first time.

Weaknesses:    Handle falls off, not waterproof, pump slides down on the rough stuff and into the chainring, o-rings fail etc.

Bottom Line:   
I purchased this pump after the great reviews in a bike mag. This thing is crap. I am embarrased to say that I am on my third one. As parts fell off or broke, I purchased a new one. I figured I would have spare pieces as it wore out. Nice thought, but doesn't help you when it fails you (and it will) deep into a ride. If people think this is a good pump, it is based on looks alone and not on any significant trail use. Look elsewhere.

Mammoth - off season?

Hi All - will be my first time in Mammoth Lakes area in two weeks, and I'd love to get in some mountain biking. The park is closed now, so I'm wondering...do they leave trails open on the mountain to access by climbing when the lifts are not running? And if so, is that even something we'd want to ...
