I had a crank brothers pump, had a twist head to select presta or normal valves, and a knob on the bottom to change from high volume to high pressure. Broke at 40psi when pumping my tyres up for the first time. Looked pretty but was ultimately crap.

I bought a Crank Brothers Power Pump to try it out (it was the one with the switch to change from high volume to high pressure) - it was a piece of junk so I sent it back. The Topeak Road Morph is pretty good for a small pump. On my MTB I carry an Innovations Second Wind with 4 CO2 bottles.

well I own Crank Bros PPP so far its doing great, only you need to learn how to operate it, its high volume and pressure is usefull but you must know when to switch, if its a totall flat i use the high volume (harder pump) to pump, its faster when reach bout certain no of psi then u switch to high pressure (easier pump), then its all ok. Summore it looks cool, i still dont know about the pump durability though, but its good for a weigh weenie like me.

i have had a Crank Bro.'s pump for over a year now (the one with high volume/high pressure) and it is still working like new. It stays in my camel pack and has been through numerous crashes and still pumps like new everytime I use it.

Once you used a Topeak Morph pump you will consider all others inferior. Of course you shouldn't connect the pump body to the valve. That only increases the chances of breaking the valve.

i've got the power pump alloy (the larger model) and have never had a problem with it wrecking valves, or failing as a pump. been using it for 2 years now without a problem.
