Strength:

OK volume, pretty compact.

Weakness:

The handle doesn't stay latched, so I can only mount it on the chainring side of my bike which I hate. The holding bracket does not hold the pump very well. The plastic piece on the velcro strap broke this morning and that is the last straw!!

I wouldn't buy this pump. I'm not going to use it any more for biking and only use it for inflating basketballs and footballs for the kids.

Everything about this product is weak.

This by far the WORST bike pump I have ever used in my entire life. Any cheap plastic pump would work wonders compared to this piece of junk.

Strength:

it looks ok

Weakness:

rubbish at pumping up tyres!

The worst pump i have ever used! if you push it on the valve to hard it dumps all the air if you dont push it on hard enough it just blows the air around the valve...if you manage to get it "just right" its about as good as any other...personally sticking to my cheap plastic decathlon pumpt that "just works" as opposed to this fiddly night mare.

Strength:

Light weight, simple, easy to clean, has a metal pin through the tightening lever.

Weakness:

The velcro strap that comes in the box should not be used unless your goal is to lose the pump.

Works well with presta or schrader, get a decent set of velcro straps before your first ride or just put it in your pack.

Frs1661   Cross Country Rider [Jul 03, 2008]
Strength:

Fairly small and light. Does schrader and presta without carrying an adapter. Decent volume.

Weakness:

Low pressures only; don't expect to get over 50psi without serious effort.

A good, reliable pump to carry for mtb fix-a-flats. Cheap too!

Strength:

Light weight, cool design

Weakness:

weak Support

the pump works fine but the support or clip is very weak mine broke, the pump came out and a moment later a car behind me passed over it and broke the pump nose
in the other hand, my new zefal pump seems a little heavier

Strength:

sturdy construction, mounts great, does both schrader and presta, still allows use of water bottle cage since it mounts under it to the side. Never falls off, held by two clips as well as a retaining strap.

Weakness:

nothing really

Great pump fors the money, I'm very happy with the purchase

Strength:

All

Weakness:

The hadle

Good design, but with a T shape handle could be easier to pump. Very good air power, no so heavy and it works for for me for a lot of time.
