Strengths:    Looks. Strong construction. Small size (8.25"). Aluminum shaft and barrel.

Weaknesses:    A bit heavy at 4.5 onz. Max pressure at only 90 psi. Single Action.

Bottom Line:   
I need a small pump to accommodate at the seat post. Search for Topeak but would have to order it online and must of them were over 9 inches long. Blackburn was my second choice because of its name and quality of previous products used. Haven't test it "live" yet but will post immediately. My first concern about small pumps were they capacity to maintain high pressure without a leak of air. I made some test with the Shorty and no leaks at all.

I paid high for it but you can find better prices over the Internet.

As expected, it sped up the steering of the bike tremendously and makes it much more fun in the corners. The quality of the stem is amazing. Fully machined from a single pi ... Read More »

Front brake issues with Avid Shorty 6 Cantis Paul levers on a 1x1

I'm having issues getting adequate braking power with my front brake. I've set them up and screwed with them so much, but the front brake has no stopping power and continuously makes a noise like a horny dolphin. This doesn't happen with the rear brake. The rear works fine. I recently put the Probl ... Read More »
