Strengths:    Umm...cool looks.

Weaknesses:    After less than a year of use the hose seperated from the chuck. There is no way to repair it.

Bottom Line:   
I bought this pump after I had forgoten my regular "travel" pump for an afterwork ride. It worked great for about 7 months but then as I was pumping up the tires recently the hose blew out of the chuck. I put it back together but the hose will not stay in place due to the cheap plastic parts and poor tolerance. I have an older Specialized pump that has worked great for years but this one is just a poor design. Save your money and buy something else. I expect more from Specialized.

Strengths:    Pump seems to be well built - pressure gauge is easy to see.

Weaknesses:    I'm new to presta valves and fought this thing for over an hour. No instructions at all - kept flatting the tire as I pumped up the hose out of the pump to over 150. Loosening up the nozzle did the trick.

Bottom Line:   
A functional pump with absolutely no manufacturer's instructions - low overall rating for making me figure it out myself.

Strengths:    Solidly built. Can be used with Presta or Shraeder valves. Pressure gague is easy to read.

Weaknesses:    No instructions whatsoever. I'm sure I would have figured out how to adjust the amount of grip on the valve eventually but the shop pro showed me when I bought it.

Bottom Line:   
Pumps up your tires in a hurry. Pressure gague is easy to read seems to be accurate.
