    Best mini pumps (poll)

    Hello,

    I posted a poll about mini pumps in the "Road" forum. I don't want to double post, so here the link:

    Which mini pump do you prefer?

    The Topeak Road/Mini morph is the only pump in existence. The rest are all pale immitations.

    Yeah, you left the Road Morph off the list. Notice how all the other responses in the Road forum are "I use this one, it won't get to 110psi and kind of sucks, but it's small and light." The Road Morph is still small and can actually get you to whatever pressure you want to run.

    I like my Lezyne Pressure Drive. It feels solid and pumps a tire up decent enough. Luckily *knock on wood* I've never needed to use it.

    Small is relative. You're talking about people (a great many of them) who have to stuff everything into a jersey pocket because a seatbag looks bad.

    That's true. However it seems like many people are already using mini pumps that mount on the frame via a bracket, so why not use a pump that actually, I dunno, works good n stuff?

    inorite!? I hated the whole guessing game with air pressure before I got a road morph. And who wants to carry around a pressure gauge as an extra piece of equipment?

    And a Victorian bustle on the butt of their aero jersey is an improvement?

    I'd likely just base pressure of the tire on whatever the other tire feels like.
