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...

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

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

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.
