assume you mean mini pump...

i have this one... bought it because it also has co2 option on it... 12g unthreaded or threaded co2's... used it a few times when i've had a slowish leak on my bike to get me back to the car... i always carry a few 12g's with me (left over from my paintball days)... if it comes to it i can pump... or if somone needs some air they can pump... it's slow and tedious... but it'll get you off the trail... and thats the point of a mini pump isn't it.

if u can swing it, get this one... i have the turbo version which had a gauge on it and its the best pump you can get.. airs up a 2.35 tire in about a minute and it has a fold out leg so its like a mini floor pump. i've used a cb mini and a blackburn mini hand pump and they both take forever to pump up a tire. the topeak mountain or turbo morph is the way to go.. i even use it on my road bike

I had one of those (Topeak Mountain Morph).

Pros: It worked really well both at home and on the trail. I especially liked the fold down foot pedal and the fact it uses a hose. Much easier to pump up a tire on the trail and is compact enough to fit in most hydration packs.

Cons: It required constant attention with little things always coming loose and eventually it literally fell apart. I think I paid almost $40 for the one I had.

If it holds together, it really is a great pump to use.

I still have the Blackburn Mammoth pump I bought back in 1996. The red anodizing has faded a bit, but that thing just refuses to die and works pretty well compared to most mini-pumps and is a little cheaper than the Topeak.

you cant go wrong with either Topeak or Blackburn mini pumps. i bought two Topeak Master Blaster pumps a couple years back (one for me and one for my brother), after a lot of use both pumps are still going strong. I believe that both Topeak and Blackburn have lifetime warranties of their pumps.

I dont like C02 pumps unless your an xc racer and you need to fill up a tube ASAP. C02 cartridges are just one more thing that ends up littering the trails or ending up in landfills.

For the life of me I could not understand what anyone was talking about when they said "Co2 ends up littering and ruining trails." Now I understand they are just talking about people throwing the cylinders out on the trail..

I figure if you bring it in you should take it out with ya.

i've yet to see a c02 cartage on the trail... heck only stuff i see is from paintballers leaving their trash...

but i can see where some arsehat would leave em... i got the pump for under $10... i figured why not... i had a bunch of co2 12g still... i'd much rather use them then spend my time pumping a high volume 29er tire haha... also has both presta and schrader valve bits right on the face of the pump...
