it looks nice and small.

what about the serfas road stick? or one of those combo CO2-mini pumps by serfas or innovations(sp?)?

I use one as a back up system for CO2. I use it for getting air into my tubes and for checking for punctures if I'm in a good spot for repairing a flat. I would not count on it as my primary inflation system, it's probably good for 60lbs of air at the least. I've have good luck using co2 and since I started to use it (almost 2 years now) I seldom (knock on wood) have flats. I guess it comes down to how often you have flats. A good full length frame pump such as a Blackburn or a Silca will never let you down. Also the double action mini pumps work just as well.

The Aria works for me for several reasons
1) small enough to fit into a jersey pocket
2) does an ok job of pumping up a road tire....mountain well maybe not.
3) Roads are good here - only flat about once a year.....so whats an extra minute or two for the conveniance and security knwing that my primry and backup are all the same.
