Strengths: Solid construction, valve hose, good looking, price. The valve hose is reversible for presta and shraeder without messing with spacers and grommets. For presta, I love that I will never bend or break off the delicate threaded rod in the valve. For shraeder valves I love that I can attach the pump even on flat tires. This would be a royal pain with the lever style pump heads, or worse the screw cap ones. Also, since the rubber hose is flexible, I can use this pump on my son's 12" wheel. Just try that with any other pump! Also, the hose with it's slim threaded heads will let me use this pump as an emergency shock pump! It won't pump your shock all the way up, but will at least let you limp home. For epic rides I'd still take a real shock pump, but for those short 3-4 hour ones, this will do just fine. On top of all that it's 30g lighter than my topeak pock master blaster road pump. I got the compact, and they do come in 3 sizes.
Weaknesses: It would be nice to have the pump lock in the closed position for stashing in a bag, but this is a minor gripe. Since the pump is anodized, assorted colors would improve the already very appealing asthetics.
For the build quality and the lightness, the price is extremely attractive. More importantly, though, is the reincarnation of the rubber hose (remember Mt. Zefals?). This lets you get into awkward positions and prevents valve damage.
I am posting this so I have it for future reference, and in case anyone else has Lezyne gauge issues and has thoughts about replacing the gauge.
The gauge on my new Lezyne HV dirt drive floor pump failed a week after I got it. Lezyne promptly sent me a replacement.
The gauge threads are glued ... Read More »
I'm having problem to screw this pump on Stan's valve. In other words i can use it easily on normal valve but it does not fit Stan's valve. Does anyone else have the problem?
I have asked my friends to try but no success and yes, I'm using the right side of the hose.Read More »
Anyone use one of these things?

I just put together my new bike. 7.0 grip shift, 7.0 rear derarailer, sram front derailer, sram chain, sram rear cassette. The shifter is 8 speed, the chain is 8 speed, the rear cassette is 8 speed, the front chain rings are 9 speed, the derailer is both. Everything works flawless but when under ... Read More »
