Submitted by Tim a Weekend Warrior from Ringwood, NJ

Date Reviewed: September 24, 2006

Strengths:    Its light and in theory should work.

Weaknesses:    May work intially, but will fail.

Bottom Line:   
This pump initially worked well, but crapped out on me on a trail ride and just would not get up to anything close to a useable pressure. After getting some assistance I finished that ride. Later I though I fixed the pump, but today after pinching in a race I took this piece of ^%$# out of my bag and it failed a second time resulting in my first DNF! But I don't need to worry about this pump anymore after rightfully bashing it to oblivion against an unsuspecting tree.

It faled me too, for the second time. The two way valve must have blocked and now I suck out the ait that I just pumped in. How do you guys fix these? For now its useless to me and I need to buy another.

Date Reviewed: November 8, 2002

Strengths:    Nice design

Weaknesses:    Needs to be kept out of the elements

Bottom Line:   
I bought this with my bike and installed it on the frame. After 6 months I had a flat and found that the pump wouldnt work any more.

There is a tiny air intake in the handle which lets dust, mud and water in, and blocks open the valve in the handle.

Not a pump for heros.

Submitted by Ira a Cross Country Rider from Australia

Date Reviewed: October 12, 2000

Strengths:    Has a gauge

Weaknesses:    This is a pump designed by people who do not cycle !! Takes considerable amount of strength to plug the valve. It always leaks when pumped. It causes the valve to shift sideway.

Bottom Line:   
Basically do not buy this pump unless you want a pump that does not work. A Made in China foot pump that cost $10 is a better option, gauge included although slightly inaccurate.

Strengths:    
Pumps well enough, mostly sturdy


Weaknesses:    
heavy
pin that holds handle on may come off!


Bottom Line:   
In a review below two years ago, I gave this product a 3....I'll still give it a 3, but beware, on mine, the pin that holds the handle on fell off and is gone forever. The less moving parts the better....at least there is a lifetime warranty.
I do like Topeak equipment....I replaced my Dual Master Blaster with a Mini Master Blaster and it works great.

Bottom Line:   


I decided to buy a pump when I got stranded with a flat up in Colorado, but having this POS wouldn't have helped me even there.The best this useless pump could deliver was about 20 psi. It leaked out of the handleshaft every time I tried to go higher. On the trail, after f^&*$ing with it for about 5 minutes I gave up, borrowed my friends pump and finishing in about 30 sec.I just returned it last night. Gotta love REI.

Got the DMB2 just a few days back. Nothing seems broken except the pump gets really hard when I attempt to push it beyond 85psi on my slick. I bought it cuz its rated to go beyond 120 and my good old Zefal hpx cannot fit my mtb frame.I'll give it 3 overall (1 against my hpX but that's unfair).

Bottom Line:   


One month ago I bought this pump. It had a pressure gage, so I thought, cool, I'll get it. Multi-purpose. Well, this pump SUCKS. I have determined, on several occasions, that the pressure gage has been incorrect. This has cost me one snakebite flat and another near blowout. I am also frustrated by the fact that every time I attempt to inflate my tires to the (supposed) correct pressure, my presta valves are bent beyond repair.
In fact, the twin head technology they boast of makes no difference in how
quickly the pump does its job. I have seen grass grow in the time it takes to
inflate my tires with this sorry excuse for what they call a top-of-the-line pump. I paid $40 for this pump--I can go anywhere and get a better pump than this one.

Bottom Line:   


I like my mini master blaster. I've used it to pump up to 85 psi without any problems, and the pump is pretty compact. The gauge reads about 5 psi low, but at least it's consistent about it. The only problem I experience is that it tends to pop out of its clamp holder when installed on the down tube, even when secured with the supplied velcro strap. I used a second velcro strap to hold it securely.

Bottom Line:   


this is a review for the mini master blasternice pump, works good for me with no problems after 2 years. This is the only pump I have, so it gets used for lots of other stuff besides roadside flats. I think the only time I ever used it on the trail was when I lent it to some guy.The guage is useless, kinda regret spending the extra $7 or so, since I've never seen it move past 40 psi, and I think it's better anyway to go by feel.pumps both ways, which cuts down on pumping time.

Borrowed a guys TOPEAK who I met on the trail. Got my tire pumped but on the last few strokes, handle busted off. Could someone e-mail on where I can get a replacement handle for this guy. Iwas impressed by the pump at first but was sadly dissapointed.

OK, So this is a review of the TOPEAK mini-masterblaster. I have to warn people to stay away from this thing. I get flats on a regular basis due to cactus and car parts so I've used this pump. On the 6th use It stopped working. The damn thing leaked. I couldn't tell where it was leaking from but it left me stranded. I have no good feelings towards this piece of crap. Other than not working it seems fine.

Zefal's suck. This pump is great, it does everything a pump is supposed to do and keeps on doing it. The gauge is nice too.
