Strengths:    You can leave your CO2 at home.

Weaknesses:    Water bottle mount places pump in the "jet stream"

Bottom Line:   
Pump is fairly light, mounts at water bottle…mine has never rattled and for those old enough to remember how to pump 120 psi in your Clement Criterium Setas using a plastic Silca frame mount pump with a Campy head (30 years later still a better hand pump for the weight), you will not have a problem pumping 120 psi with this excellent little pump. The trick is to use your left hand, thumb around the tire, fingers wrapped around the pump head and rim to stabilize the pump and valve connection. Then pump with your right arm and put your shoulder into the effort as the pressure builds. I’ll bet you can get 130+ psi out of this pump without it breaking. I would buy this pump again.

Strengths:    Smooth stroke action, easy to inflate if you get the head on secure! Light and durable.

Weaknesses:    The plastic clip fastener rattles against the pump when its on you frame. No lock on head?

Bottom Line:   
Got this last weekend because I recently got a road bike and wanted a light pump that attaches to the frame. The head don't have a lock so it don't fasten secure to the valve, so air keeps leaking when you pump. But it is easy to inflate the tires. The clip fastener kept rattling against the pump when its mounted on the frame, its very annoying. I think I'm going to return it because of the rattling sound. I prefer my aireon Mini Floor Pump, its too bulky to mount on frame but you can carry it in your jersey.
