Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a shock pump that is very small, but still a quality item and has an accurate gauge. I'd like to carry this pump in my hydration pack, but with everything else in there (pads, tubes, anvil, etc.) there isn't much room!

Can anyone recommend a SMALL quality item? Links are appreciated....

Thanks!

I actually have one of those! Things started off great with that pump, but unfortunately went downhill from there...the little "center" peice that you unscrew for some reason doesn't work properly (I have no idea why). When I unscrew it now it lets all of the air out of the chamber.....I have zero idea why it does this now, but not when I first got it. More than likely it's the operator!

I used to have the performance one and it worked pretty good. I really did not have any problems what so ever.

but if it breaks then what can you expect for 15 dollars.

I recommend trying that one if your not sure which pump to use. I am sure it will hold up fine for a long time.

I realize this doesn't exactly address the question as posted, but speaking from experience, unless you have a faulty shock you won't need this pump with you on every ride. you may want to look for a high quality pump first, small size second. I've found it's plenty to check the shock once or twice a week. Plus, you don't want to fall on this pump. You'll probably find it's suitable to keep it in the car or at home in the workshop.

Theres a couple of pumps on the market now that are comibned shock and tyre mini pumps, i believe Topeak has one. I don't know how they work though:(

As for me, i've been very happy with my Fox Shock pump, and although i run air suspension front and back, i wouldn't carry a shock pump with me.

performance pump is back ordered.
Don't worry. Several companies sell the same one in various color schemes. Mine is an Avenir. I love it. It's MUCH better than the previous generation of generic shock pumps (i.e. the ones everyone sells under their own brand name) The dual valve for eliminating air loss is awesome, simple, and durable.

However, this is NOT one of the smaller shock pumps out there. Best bang for the buck though, IMHO...

Thanks for the replies!

I guess I should clarify why I would carry a pump....the riding that I primarily do would be considered by some to be "DH" but I'm getting tired of pushing so I'm climbing more and more....so I set the PSI for my SPV very high for the climb, and then reset it very low (soft) for the decent.....

well that explains a lot. might I suggest, when your shock wears out, go for one with a lock out.

I am a big fan of the Crank Bros power pump alloy. Light weight, works great, and a lifetime warranty. $30-35 at your LBS.
First off, I read this completely wrong the first time and so I apologize and need to repost. I use the Wrench Force shock pump and it works great, no compliants after four years of use. Folds up so it's about 9.5 inches long.
