Difference between the road morph and atb morph topeak mini?

I have a topeak road morph mini pump, but need to add one to my mountain bike - to many times of not swapping the pump and going without. Anyways, I know the road model has the gauge and the mountain does not, anything else that separates the two? Should I be looking at other models for the mountain bike - Ive been satisfied with the road morph to this point.

I believe the Mountain Morph pump has a slightly larger diameter barrel. This means that it moves more air, filling fat tires to low pressures a bit more quickly. The Road Morph has a slightly narrower barrel which makes it a little more optimal for filling skinny high pressure tires. Either pump will do either job, but each does its own job more efficiently.

There are other good pumps, but if you are happy with the Morph, get another one. They aren't the smallest or lightest mini-pump, but they are about the easiest to use.
