I love my Crank Bros with a gage and two stage pumping. It makes filling the tire faster at the beginning, and easier on the wrists once you're up over 80 psi.

I get a fair number of flats and tried alot of pumps and imho Topeak morphs are the way to go. So good that I probably could live without a big floor pump at home after buying a couple of Topeak Morphs.

I second the guage bit. Make sure you get one.
It is crucial to avoid over inflating beyound specs.
Front wheel blow out is no fun.

Topeak Road Morph (with gauge). I borrowed one (off Molly from Salem at Devil's Lake) when my Zefal mini-pump was found to be cracked. I'd not seen one so small like a track pump before and it was so easy & quick to use. After this, I tried all the way down the coast to SF, even in SF and still couldn't get one. Missed out at Bicycles 101 in Florence, OR by 20 mins to someone who got the last one!. Like someone said before, it's small enough to go in the panniers.

My Topeak Road Morph has a snap-in bracket + a piece of velcro to secure it in. Maybe this is new? Otherwise I'm not sure how it could fall out like others have suggested.

I have the Road Morph. Great pump, it's the only pump I own. I mounted it BESIDE my water bottle cage using a bracket from another pump. Performance has a bracket that fits for like $2.

Right here: Performance Hurricane ATB Bracket

Hi Guruguhan,
Gotta weigh in for the Topeak Road Morph. Have done several tours and was always frustrated by two things...presta valves and frame mounted pumps. Blackburn, Giro, Serfas presta/schrader, etc. are all crap, comparatively. Bought a TRM about 3 years ago and it was like a cloud lifted. I even like presta valves now...well, not really, but at least I've made my peace with them. Use the Giro and Serfas on my mtb and road trainer, respectively...they'll get me home. For touring the TRM is the best when you're 40 miles into a 60 mile day, it's raining, you've lost your sense of humor and a puncture is no joke. Get the one with the guage as has been recommended. They're a little pricey, but well worth the cost.

Yes this is a new design for the '06 Road Morphs. Prior to this it came with a little sliding clip mount that was about as secure as those clothing clip mounts you see on tail lights.

FYI, Blackburn makes a bottle cage mount that seems about the right size and doesn't require removing the cage (I have the "regular" version that zip ties to the frame). It's just a tad too big but it might be fixable by gluing some strips of inner tube to the inside of the "fingers" that grip the pump. I wonder if the Turbo Morph that someone mentioned earlier might fit better since it has a fatter barrel.

Thanks! I'm going to order a couple of those.
Another vote for the Topeak Road Morph G. I got mine here:
