December 11, 2012
Pros: - Large air capacity allows less pumps.
- It is mostly plastic and very light.
- It is very durable
- This pump has never had an negative impact on my riding.

Cons: -It's inexpensive and has caused rub marks on my frame.
- It only fits Scrader valves so I need to keep an adapter nipple on my valve stem.

Recommendation: I ride almost year your in southern NH beating my equipment up on some of the most technical trails in New England and it has survived 3 solid seasons. It doesn't take a million pumps to inflate a tire. This pump has never had a negative impact on my ridding.

Pros: inexpensive and light. Gets the job done.

Cons: Became dislodged on first ride. I originally mounted it upside down with the hand pump facing down and it extended while riding.

Recommendation: Inexpensive, it is definitely worth the purchase. You don't need an expensive fancy air pump.

Pros: Compact, light, and efficient.

Cons: None

Recommendation: This is a good mini-pump for throwing in your hydro pack. Does its job effectively and efficiently, and for the $15 pricepoint it is right on for the money!

Pros: Pump is small, light, and pumps efficiently. The mount provided works well with the bottle cage mounting screws. Brings tires to desired presure quickly and is capable of 90psi.

Cons: Velcro strap broke on the 3rd ride. I replaced it with a velcro wire tie, works great. As with all of these types of pumps, its hard to support the pump at the valve stem while pumping. I have bent a couple of presta valves while pumping.

Recommendation: At 15 bucks this pump is worth every cent. It does what it supposed to do and does it well. However, my next pump will be one that has a flexalbe tube, so that it can be supported on the ground while pumping.
