What's your favorite frame pump?
I'm in the market for a new pump, and I'd like to get one that can attach to the frame while still being "good enough" for use as a main pump. Currently I'm just using my bike as a commuter, but once I become a stronger rider I'm going to try and get some touring done this year.
So, basically I'm looking for a pump that:
- Is fairly comparable to a floor pump for needed power (somewhat more is OK, but I'd rather not get one of those crappy little pumps that take forever to get up to proper PSI).
- Can attach to the frame.
- Is pretty rugged.
- If there is one, one that has foldable feet for floor-style pumping would be really cool. Not necessary, but a bonus.
I'm running Presta valves and fairly low PSI - only 80-85 on 35 tires. I have a dedicated gauge, so an included one isn't really necessary. I'm not really concerned about weight, I just want something that works well. I'd rather not break the bank either, but I am willing to drop a little more cash for a pump that'll last me. So, what pumps do y'all on tour use?
(Apologies as I realize this has surely been asked, but I couldn't find anything applicable in the first few pages of search)
Recommendations are appreciated!
