Tire pump
 
Suggestions for a portable tire pump for mountain biking?

Something to carry with just in case...Most of those portable electric ones are garbage so the reviews state...

Topeak Mountain Morph if they still make it.

I am having trouble envisioning a tire pump that is not portable...

Nope, I looked again and they all seem to be portable.

That pitcher is of one of them compressor machines. 'Snot a pump. It's got a sleek box around it, but it just like this here gizmo.

In that case, the Topeak recommendation is an excellent one.

I have a $7 Aldi special that is great, been using it almost daily (I have an airhorn)....

Now... if I were replacing it.... Gotta go with the Mountain Morph G (has a built in guage).

The best one I ever had was the Dog Pump. It was some no-name thing that had Frenchy writing on it: "Pompe de Poche" which everyone knows means "Dog Pump". It was a resin thing that telescoped from about 5" to 10" and was the best thing for fairly high-volume low-pressure stuff. I lost it. Why do you always lose your best ****?

If not I've ordered several $10 Amazon specials which have worked well. I must have 10 pumps scattered around but usually throw in CO2 in the pack.

Topeak Mountain Morph is truly awesome to use, but a little on the larger side of what I like to carry around just for the 1 or 2 times a year I need it. I Have a Mini-Morph which also works well. I think the key is having a flexible hose and a tab that your foot can step on.

My lezyne fell apart with nominal use, just raddled apart on the trails. Crack brothers clik is working nicely.
