    Perhaps it is a form of advertising, but odd that the reasonably priced pumps are missing from their website. They are great pumps; I've got two of them.

    Not one that you can easily carry. Check out the Abus Bordo or something similar as they can be mounted on bottle cage mounts.

    The only difference I noticed in the specs is that the gauge has a smaller margin of error, 1% compared to 5% on the standard pumps. Can't really see how that will effect anyone in real world...

    Having used both the GatorSkin and the 4s, I greatly prefer the 4s as I think it has a better ride and is much, much, better in the wet. On the down side it won't last as long as the GatorSkin. ...

    As side from bragging rights (a form of fashion, I'd say) why would one need a 12,000 psi race car and airplane brake hose to pump up their bike tires? Sure seems like a fashion element to me.

    Marathon Supreme are great in the rain, but my wife and I have had far too many flats with them for a tire that costs so much. Plus, the sidewalls are rubbish.

    Check out the Abus Granit 54 lock. It's a little wider than the Kryptonite, and can fit around European traffic light posts. Should be able to find one online for around 60 euro.
