I just purchased the SKS "Rennkompressor" at christmas. Very heavy duty construction with cast iron base, steel pump tube. It cost me £40 (about US $60, depending on exchange rates). This is somewhat expensive, but the construction quality is excellent, and compares reasonably to the other high quality offerings. What influenced my choice was that the bike shop recommended it - it is what they use in the workshop. I believe it's rated up to 170 psi, and getting 700x23 tires to 120 is easy. It will outlive me and my grandchildren!
Hope that is useful,
Get a bicycle. You will certainly not regret it, if you live.
