Just purchased my first road bike and want to make sure I have all the accessories for a ride. I have everything and even got a Spin Doctor mini pump (from Performance Bike) to mount onto the bike. Now though, I'm having second thoughts about it, partially because some have posted they lose a lot of air when unscrewing it after pumping up a tire and if your hands are sweaty, looks like it'll be hard to pump with because it's all polished metal.
Someone suggested this one but sounds like it has a lot of plastic parts in key areas that tend to failure over time.

Wondering if any of you can suggest any good mini pumps.
Things I'd prefer it to have:
-mount to the side of water bottle mounts so I can still have two bottles
-ideally have a longer stroke so it's easier and quicker to pump up
-flexible hose so it's easier to pump up without destroying the valve/ valve stem
-must be Presta compatible (given)
And before anyone mentions, I haven't ruled out CO2 but would like to have a pump just in case I forget cartridges, run out, etc.
Thanks in advance and let me know if you need more info to answer.
