Strengths:    Switch hitter head for both presta and schraeder in one tool.

Weaknesses:    Switch hitter head doesn't accept schraeder as easily as I'd prefer. Had to get a replacement (free from specialized, which was cool) because the rubber seal was wearing out in the head.

Bottom Line:   
Decent pump but I'd rather go with the Serfas FP200 which I've used extensively and love.

Strengths:    Durable, holders for hose, works with both Presta and Schrader valves without any switching of anything, gauge.

Weaknesses:    None that I can think of.

Bottom Line:   
This pump is very nice.
The Rockhopper is my first experience with Presta valves, and I had zero problems using the pump with them.

I do not have to hold the pump head on either like I read here, thus I can pump with both hands on the handle.

Best pump by far I have ever used.
I asked for a good pump when I bought my bike two weeks ago, and this was what they recommended.

Strengths:    Does the job fast with minimal fuss. No need to mess with the head, just attach it to the valve, flip the lever and pump. Looks great in yellow and black.

Weaknesses:    Price (in Qatar at any rate), but it's saved me plenty of grief with frame pumps so it was worth it for me. Construction doesn't seem that sturdy.


Bottom Line:   
You often pay over the odds for Specialized kit, and in my case this was exacerbated by the extra cost I had to face because it was imported. However, it's been so easy to use - dare I say it, even a pleasure - that I don't really begrudge the price I had to pay. So far it's not let me down either, unlike a couple of POS Topeak frame pumps which seem to break every time I really need them. I'd be wary of leaving it out in a sandstorm, but as a floor pump to use at home or keep in the back up vehicle for longer trips, this has been great.

Date Reviewed: January 4, 2009

Strengths:    Looks nice, Works great with Shrader valves

Weaknesses:    Will not sit on Presta. Have to hold it with one hand, and pump with the other. Half the times it does not even put air in the Presta. Gauge sucks and is not accurate at all.

Bottom Line:   
Not worth the headache. Spend the extra $10 and get a Blackburn
