Iíve had 4 different shock pumps over the years (Fox, Progressive, Rock Shox, and one I canít remember), and honestly, they are all pretty much the same in quality and function.

What pressure range are you looking for?

I bought a no-name brand on EBay because it got good reviews. Very similar to the name brands. Have been using it for 2 years now and still going strong. If I remember tomorrow I can go check the brand if needed.

I've had a bunch of them from Rockshox, Fox, XFusion, etc. They all break eventually.

The ergonomics of the Lezyne are pretty good.

Wow. I have never had one break or fail.

What breaks?

What breaks?

Face (and subsequently the needle on the gauge), handle, shaft, etc.

Bikes: Too many. Cannondale SuperSix, Trek Remedy 8, Trek Crossrip+ get the most ride time.

I've mostly used the Fox digital pump, which to the best of my ability seems identical to the Rockshox one. They work well. I also have a Lezyne Shock Drive, which is tiny and light works fine but the gauge is hard to read--nice for dorking around with shock settings on trail.

For personal use honestly most are fine--the gauge needs to be fine enough to dial in settings, but really it doesn't matter if they're accurate in an absolute sense so long as you use the same settings on the same pump, and they all pump up well enough for the relatively occasional use seen outside of a shop setting.

After Googling around I ended up purchasing the Topeak 360 PSI Bar Pocket Shock DXG. Once I start using the pump I'll let you know how it works out.
