    Strengths:    Nice mounting bracket. Decent price.

    Weaknesses:    Somewhat difficult to use in terms of placement. Easy to break. I was pumping my tire and the head broke off from the air tube. Not-so-specialized.

    Bottom Line:   
    Good pump for the price, but get something better at Ebay for the same money.

    Strengths:    compact and stores out of the way on the bike
    I ride road and mtb so dual


    Weaknesses:    O ring broke after 2 months, local bearing outlet gave me 2
    I put spare inside barrel after 4 mths still ok, so no problem repairing it on track


    Bottom Line:   
    value for money it is ok
    yes it is slow to pump up a tyre, but look at the size of the unit and take into account that it is dual action and its what I would have expected

    Strengths:    -Light
    -Dual valves
    -Forward and Aft pumping


    Weaknesses:    -Bulky
    -Takes a lot of pumping to get your tires up
    -Had a little problem with the clip


    Bottom Line:   
    Great pump for emergencies. Don't even think about using this pump for regular use. Takes a good hundred pumps to get the tires at a descent PSI. It's a reliable pump and can do both types of valves. The clip thing for mine snapped off when i went off a 3 foot drop. No biggie, that's a warranty issue and was replaced immediately at the shop. Good pump. Worth getting.

    Strengths:    Fairly light. You can pump both schrader and presta tubes.

    Weaknesses:    A bit bulky with the dual head, but that's why I have a Camelback.

    Bottom Line:   
    This pump has saved me on the trail several times and I have had no prolems with it. It was easy for me to figure out how to use, and you can pump both schrader and presta without taking the head apart or doing anything funky with the pump. This is great for helping other people too. Pumps pretty good for a small pump. I had no trouble getting my tire to correct pressure with this pump.

    Strengths:    small, light, could pump you up enough to get home

    Weaknesses:    puny, just forget it for getting full psi

    Bottom Line:   
    baaah, it's ok i suppose just to get you home if you're in a jam, but unless your hands and fingers are impervious to pain; just forget about using this to get you to full psi - it's not gonna happen and you will have smashed it to pieces way before then, as you jump up and down on it in frustration

    Strengths:    dual thing

    Weaknesses:    nothin'

    Bottom Line:   
    i dont know why people don't like this, it works great and u don't have to put yer thumb over the other hole, the only thing that was wrong with mine is i tried pulling it out on a presta when it was still clamped in and the little presta head pulled off with it, but that was my fault.. but i reccoment this pump to anybody who has bikes that use both.

    Strengths:    presta and schrader in one pump

    Weaknesses:    difficult to use; the action of inflating a tire causes the stem to wear down against the rim allowing for slow leaks from the tube.

    Bottom Line:   
    rip off. I have used cheaper pumps that work a whole lot better.

    Strengths:    Shnazy little container/mounting bracket it comes with.
    Fast action


    Weaknesses:    Little confusing to figure out at first
    Air comes out both ends (see below)
    Big


    Bottom Line:   
    This is a pretty decent pump - it definitely does a great job of pumping up my tires. It was a touch confusing to figure out at first, particularly the lever part, but it's all good now. My only real qualms are that the pump is pretty big. The unit has two nozzles - one for the presta and one for schrader. You have to plug one of the nozzles to pump the air in, which is fine, because you're typically holding the pump on with a thumb anyway!

    At any rate, it's a great pump, I just need to find out how to strap it to my mount, or get a bigger camelbak!

    4 flamers for value - 20 bucks CDN!!
    3 flamers for overall - too big and the air coming out of both ends!
