I like my SKS Airbase. It has a long Aluminum barrell and inflates a tire fast. THe new Park pumps are supposed to be pretty good too.

A good bang-for-buck pick is the Pedros Joe-Blow series.

My big fat Zefal has been serving me well for 5 years.

I got the (expensive) Park pump a few months ago - it works well, but it took me a while to get used to the very heavy valve head...if you're not careful, it could tear your tube's stem. I like the gauge best - since it's at the top, it's easy to read.

Once of the cycling mags did a review of a dozen or so floor pumps recently, and I believe that the Specialized top-of-the-line model had the highest rating.

For price, performance and reliability, Blackburn can't be beat. I love my TP-4, had it for years and I'll happily replace it with another Blackburn if it ever wears out, but since there's a Lifetime Warranty, they'll give me a new one.
