    Recommendations on a decent road frame pump

    I'm in search of a good quality frame pump for a road bike...something with a minimum of 120 psi capability. A friend of mine suggested a Blackburn Airstik...any comments? Personally, I've been leaning towards the Topeak Road Morph. Are there any others out there that are worth a look? I'd really like to keep the price under $30, if possible. ALSO...is there such a thing as a tire pressure gauge for presta valves? I've checked the Performance site, and couldn't find anything. I know I could always use that adapter on the valve, but I was just wondering if one actually existed or not. Thanks!

    Buy a Road Morph and don't look back. Under $30 on Amazon right now for the version with a gauge. It's served me well as a frame and floor pump since I got it last year.

    +1 on the Road Morph G

    I've got one and it works great, up to 120 with not a lot of effort.

    I have the Topeak mini road morph and my only complaint is the small amount of air going in with each stroke. Gets it up to pressure though-----Eventually.

    Best part of the Road Morph is the hose that protects against some of us who are eventually going to ruin a valve with a "non-hosed" pump.
