which frame pump is best?

my frame pump died... looking for a good frame pump that handles Schrader valves, has the ability to act like a floor pump, and can handle road tire pressures. anything like that out there?

Topek Road Morph----around $30

You can do a search, I did.

Road Morph wins most every time same question has been asked...........

Assuming that you don't want CO2 fans entering the debate.

My first frame pump, I bought in 1984, with my first real touring bike. Up to day all my frame pumps have been a compromise of a floor pump. Taking too long, painfull at high pressure and never fully reaching your desire pressure.

My latest frame pump is a Topek road morph. It's the best frame pump I have owned to this day. Not perfect or substitute for a floor pump, but it's the first pump that gets the job done, without requiring second pump from the floor pump. What I mean, it gets to the desire pressure with relative little pain. Still takes a longer time than the floor pump of course and the build in gauge is not as accurate, but accurate enough IMO.

Having said that, I wish I would have bought the Lezyne mini floor pump. I think it's a better build (aluminum vs mostly plastic), shares a bottle cage holes for carry on the frame vs taking over a bollte cage all together, and it's a better pump overall I think. Can't speak for the build in gauge since I haven't tried it my self.

I have a Topeak Road Morph G. The fact that they don't make a side-mount for it so it can share bottle cage holders is annoying. I had two side-mounts for other pumps. One was too small and broke when I tried to insert the Topeak, and the other is too big, so even with velcro, the pump is too loose. If anyone has a source for a side-mount holder for the Road Morph G, I'd be grateful. Zip-tying it to my top tube won't work because the rear brake cable runs underneath the tube.

I had a Zefal HPX for about 20 years and it died in 2009. Since then I've been using a Park PM-5. It's a little clumsy to get set up from frame to pumping, but it works well. I'm happy to say that I've hardly ever had to use it, though!
