Advice on floor and frame air pumps

My floor pump took a dump and I need a good frame pump. I've been using my air compressor to air my tires . any suggestions under $40 for each?

Why do you need a floor pump if you have a compressor?

As for frame pumps, check out the crank bros pumps.

My pumps:

Floor pump - why? It has a gauge and a steel barrel. I had one with a plastic barrel and hated it.

Carry along pump (I don't frame mount it) - why? It fits into my CamelBack, has a gauge, and a fold out foot peg so you can use it like a floor pump.

Takes alot of electrical energy to run it for a small amount of air, and it's really dedicated for my automotive uses. Also, i like to carry the floor pump on trips. The 25 gallon compressor tank....not so good on trips

Thanks for the heads-up on CBs.

I use a Topeak Mountain Morph pump, and I like it, the head can be adjusted (you flip this little piece around inside) so that it works for presta and schraeder valves. And there is a little foot piece that comes down and the handle adjusts and stuff so that it is very ergonomic.

I forgot to add, the Topeak Morph pump has a hose, so you don't have to worry about shearing off the valve stem while inflating.
