    Micro tire pump question

    I'm looking for a micro tire pump, for shrader valves, that will fit inside of a 7" wide x 2" deep x 4" tall tool bag, non-CO2 preferred. Any ideas? The ones I've seen are just a little too big, around 8" long. I have an old school schwinn with no water bottle mount, and would prefer to keep the pump hidden.

    Edit - but your'll also need that little hose with a schrader adapter.

    You're just trying to start an argument to show how smart you are.

    Check

    http://www.quickex.com/

    as another option. There are a couple of pumps there that attach permanently to the bike and have a hose. I have used the Quicker Pro there, a decent pump, but lacking a hose that I would now consider a must. I normally carried the Quicker in my tool wrap-up bag.

    Crank brothers makes some pumps that will fit in your bag. I've got the PPU in a saddle bag.

    +1 for the Road Morph if you have 700c, high pressure, low volume tires. If you have 26" tires, high volume, lower pressure, you could go with a smaller pump.
    Every time we let a vehicle pass there is a little bit of compromise. But compromise allows the city to function and allows cyclists to function in the city. The trick is not to eliminate compromise but to learn how to work safely within it.

    Here's a link to the shorty Crank Brothers power pump http://tinyurl.com/ckyxkd

    I'm planning to get one for my back up bike instead of switching my Topeak Road Morph back and forth.

    After looking for ages, I picked up a Lezyne Pressure Drive M. It is totally metal. The fittings screw onto the valve - so no leakage. It's very small. And the LBS let me try it to pump up a road tire to 100 PSI before I picked it up -- worked great for such a small pump.

    And the mounting bracket (next to bottle cage) is great.

    If you want your new pump to last, keep it covered. The under-bottle cage bracket is convenient, but one wet ride or several dusty rides will contaminate the seals. I keep mine in my camelbak or mess bag. My mini pump is the same one I got 12 yrs. ago, and still works well. My friends who carry their pumps on the frame get a new one every season.
