Strengths:    Small, light (contrary to the other reviews, its actually 7.5" and 120g)

Weaknesses:    300 strokes to get 25lbs

Bottom Line:   
Was looking for a pump to fit in my wedge bag and this is the one! Big enough to get some air in your tire but small enough to stow in most bags. The twistlock head piece wabbled a little so hopefully there won't be any longevity issues but it made an excellent seal (presta). It is designed to fit both though. ($22 shipped)

Strengths:    This pump is ridiculously small and light. Weighs 350g and the Carbon Fiber version weighs 340g. At the time of purchase the Aluminum one was $16 and the CF $24, both at Amazon. The CF one does look pretty cool but I told myself I wouldn't even care about it later on and just got the Aluminum.

Weaknesses:    The small size comes with a price. The site says it'll pump to 120psi. Well i'm not saying the're lying but I wouldn't want to have to do it with this little thing. I can pump enough air to ride fairly comfortably but there's too much backpressure to fully pump up the wheels.

Bottom Line:   
Small, light, does the job. Push it on, twist to lock, pump away. Solid build quality as well. If you're looking for a minipump for emergencies on the trail this is a great choice. It's just a little too much of a hassle for me to sit there and pump 150+ times.

I'm happy with my switch to the Topeak Turbo Morph. Which is just the Mountain Morph with a gauge and considerably larger than the MT. Rocket AL MasterBlaster. It's a tradeoff I was willing to make.

Strengths:    Light weight, small, Pumps to full pressure even for a road bike. Works for presta and schrader.

Weaknesses:    no gauge, but so what.

Bottom Line:   
This is the best mini pump I've ever used. You can pump to pressure with out wearing our your arm, even road tires. Works with schrader or presta, and at 6.5" long and weighs so little, it's nothing to carry. Definitely worth $20 bucks.

Topeak Mt. Rocket AL mini pump problems

Anyone have one of these? They claim it can be used on both presta and Schrader valves... however, when attempting to fill the presta, I cannot get a seal around the valve. There is a locking mechanism on the pump (twist the top) but it is no where near creating a seal. P.O.S. going to have ... Read More »
