Air Pump to Match Polished Ti-Frame

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Air Pump to Match Polished Ti-Frame

Are there air pumps for 100-psi tires, that come made with polished ti finish? If not, are there recommended pumps that would look equally good on a polished ti frame (Legend ST) with carbon limbs (forks, handlebars, seatpost)?

I believe the Barbieri Titan One is titanium. I have the Barbieri CarbOne, which is the CF version: works fine for a minipump and is very small.

Thanks for the info, kroadie and SpongeDad. While the ti-pump from Bruce Gordon would probably pump a tire to 100-psi in no time flat (pun intended), I'll try the Titan One mini-pump from Barbieri. Not many reviews for either the carbon or ti mini pumps from Barbieri, but the few reviews out there are all good.
