Pump recommendations?

What's a good pump to carry along for flat fixing?

I'm not on a mountain bike, but I've got 26x2.125 tires @ 45 psi, so I figured y'all might be familiar with pumps that work well on them. I'm not too concerned about weight or small size, more about usability.

I see some "Best Pump" posts in the roadie forum, but they're blowing little skinny tires up to 160 psi, so I don't know if that's the best for my use.

Thanks!

Topeak Road Morph. I've used a lot of pumps, nothing else comes close.

I ride mountain and use this one: http://www.jensonusa.com/store/produ...orph+Pump.aspx

Has a "fold out foot" feature and gauge option. Easy to use. It's a bit long, but stashes easily in a Camelback. When someone in the group flats, they always want to borrow it. One guy borrowed it and broke the fold out foot. I emailed Topeak and the part (free) arrived withing a few days. Great customer service. And superb product.

I've also had great service from Topeak... Would certainly buy from them again.
