Strength:

All, this is the best pump EVER made. When out riding with my friend this is the only pump that is used when we need a pump. It's stable and fast, even bought a spare one to put on stock.

Weakness:

None.

I can advice everybody to get one of these pumps, if you want the best ever pump.

Strength:

Volume, foot peg, Ease of use, weight ( or lack thereof ). I don't need CO2 anymore.

Weakness:

None

This Mountain Morph is great. It used to take me 200+ strokes with my old, ridiculous little hand pump to inflate a 27.5 x 2.3. Now I can do it in less than 35 strokes. The ability to stand and pump it like a floor pump is amazing. It fits in my camelback. It weighs 120 grams which is nothing. I don't leave home without it (if I'm going for a ride).

Strength:

Built in pressure gauge, fold down foot peg, fold out horizontal handle is easy to hold while pumping.

Weakness:

Little heavier than some. Absolutely no instructions on how to convert it from shraeder to presta.

I wouldn't be caught on the trail withou this pump - it has saved me a walk home more than once. This is a frame mount pump with some great features: built in pressure gauge, and a fold down foot which allows the user to step on it to anchor the pump giving you more leverage and thus more pumping power. The top handle folds out to horizontal giving you a good surface to grip and the larger size of the pump means less pumping since more air is getting pushed into your tire.

My only gripe: no instructions are given on how to convert it from shraeder valve to presta. Hopefully this will help help some others avoid some of my initial frustration with the unit: to make it work with presta valves you need to unscrew and take apart the piece that attaches to the tire valve. Take the pieces that you remove from inside it, flip them then reassemble...

Strength:

This pump delivers lots of air in a short time and having a foot peg makes the difference when you're pumping up large volume MTB tubeless tires out on the trail. You're simply able to put lots of force behind the stroke when you can stabilize the pump like you're accustomed to doing at home with your floor pump and push straight down using your weight.

Weakness:

The foot peg pin promptly worked loose, but I replaced it with a galvanized nail cut and peened to keep it in place and it's worked fine ever since. The only other minor quibble is the pump's size. While it isn't an issue with larger hydration packs, I haven't risked putting it in a Camelbak Lobo's pump side pocket, for example, because it's long enough to potentially fall out on rough stretches, like where I've found other people's pumps. On the other hand, the pump's size directly correlates with how it functions, so I can live with that.

Out on the trail, this is the pump everybody wants to use instead of their own wimpy ones. The only reason I didn't give it five flamin' chilis is having to retrofit the foot peg pin myself with an improved design. With this repair, it keeps on working great.

tgraham1   Weekend Warrior [Aug 30, 2011]
Strength:

Powerful, t-handle and foot brace are great.

Weakness:

The stiff rubber in the valve that seals on the valve stem makes it initially very difficult to attach and air up the tires. Once you figure out how to do it and practice a few times it becomes easier.

Rather big.

This pump is big and powerful. Once you perfect getting it to connect to the valve stem it is an amazing pump.

Teutonic Boy   Weekend Warrior [Apr 23, 2011]
Strength:

Can pump a lot of air fast. Works well if you have all the parts.

Weakness:

The pump valve cap fell off while riding, and now the pump is useless b/c there are no spare parts available. The plastic piece that holds the hose end on also broke.

Keep it safe in your pack and it will work fine and you won't loose parts.

ROADKILL2005   Cross Country Rider [Oct 27, 2010]
Strength:

Compact, mounts easily, nearly effortless to use when compared with most frame pimps

Weakness:

The chuck on the pump's tube lost the ability to clamp onto the valve stem after only 4 uses! Ended up having to push my bike 3 miles home when the chuck couldn't hold the valve stem tight enough to pump enough pressure into the tire to ride on a rough bike trail! It did pump it enough to make pushing far easier than pushing a flat tire! But not-quite enough to ride on without risking a pinch-flat!Since the chuck wouldn't clamp onto the valve stem; once the pressure was high enough to support the weight of the bike, the chuck would jump off of the stem! If I had a rubber band in my pocket, I might have been able to tie it down tight enough to keep it on long enough to get enough pressure to ride home!

After buying it I quickly fell in love with it, until it left me stranded the fourth time I needed it! Even though it didn't hold up very long, it was So awesome when it worked, I'm still giving it a 'fair' overall rating!

Similar Products Used: I've replaced it with a Lezyne that should function similarly except for a chuck that threads onto the valve stem!

rshawpt   Weekend Warrior [Oct 10, 2010]
Strength:

Built in gauge, fold away handle, solid construction, dependable

Weakness:

Larger than other pumps

Used road morph for years for dependable performance and built in gauge to measure pressure. Also has a small tube from pump to tire which eliminates stress on the stem when pumping tire. When I bought a mountain bike recently this was the first accessory I purchased. Works great, delievers good volume, multiple mounting options, wouldn't ride without either road or mountain morph!

Cro-Mag   Weekend Warrior [Aug 15, 2010]
Strength:

Efficient, design,ergonomics(stand on feature)is most excellent, price

Weakness:

A little difficult to read built in guage.

First compact frame pump(not a mini) that actually can deliver air volume reasonably quick without the lactic acid build up from trying to achieve the proper pressure. Only had it one day so far but I did use it. So far I really am stoked with how the morph performed.
