Date Reviewed: September 9, 2010

Strengths:    OK volume, pretty compact.

Weaknesses:    The handle doesn't stay latched, so I can only mount it on the chainring side of my bike which I hate. The holding bracket does not hold the pump very well. The plastic piece on the velcro strap broke this morning and that is the last straw!!

Bottom Line:   
I wouldn't buy this pump. I'm not going to use it any more for biking and only use it for inflating basketballs and footballs for the kids.

Strengths:    None

Weaknesses:    Everything about this product is weak.

Bottom Line:   
This by far the WORST bike pump I have ever used in my entire life. Any cheap plastic pump would work wonders compared to this piece of junk.

Strengths:    it looks ok

Weaknesses:    rubbish at pumping up tyres!

Bottom Line:   
The worst pump i have ever used! if you push it on the valve to hard it dumps all the air if you dont push it on hard enough it just blows the air around the valve...if you manage to get it "just right" its about as good as any other...personally sticking to my cheap plastic decathlon pumpt that "just works" as opposed to this fiddly night mare.

Date Reviewed: December 17, 2008

Strengths:    Light weight, simple, easy to clean, has a metal pin through the tightening lever.

Weaknesses:    The velcro strap that comes in the box should not be used unless your goal is to lose the pump.

Bottom Line:   
Works well with presta or schrader, get a decent set of velcro straps before your first ride or just put it in your pack.

Strengths:    Fairly small and light. Does schrader and presta without carrying an adapter. Decent volume.

Weaknesses:    Low pressures only; don't expect to get over 50psi without serious effort.

Bottom Line:   
A good, reliable pump to carry for mtb fix-a-flats. Cheap too!
