small, light, fits both Presta, and Schraeder valves, compact...?
1000 Pumps to inflate your tire, hard to get on the valve, dirt is an issue.
I bought the "Trek Flat Pack" and it came with this item. Sure this item is great if you get a flat tire in the middle of nowhere and you don't HAVE CO2!, but dang, if you have to pump until your arm is dead then it's almost not worth it, this is only a problem of course, if you can get the head onto the valve with the flat. And for gods sake if you don't keep this puppy clean, then dirt will get in, ruining the seal, also making it impossible to pump. By then what's the use of carrying this pump for? Sorry Wrench Force, but you failed me on this.
(I've noticed that most micro/small pumps tend to have the same or similar problems.)
