portable pumps, any preferences?(3 posts)

portable pumps, any preferences?thomas36

I'm planning to purchase a new pump to carry on the road. Does anyone have any advice regarding the choice between a good reliable frame pump verses a CO2 cartridge based system? Can the CO2 systems achieve an adequate pressure to limp home on?

zefal HPX is a pretty good frame pump. pumps up fast and takes less effort to do so.

I've used this with great success for some time now. It's about 8-9" in length (fits in a jersey pocket but sticks out a little), lightweight, pumps on the in and out strokes, looks nice (if that matters to you), is cheap ($15.99 at Colorado Cyclist, etc.), and is designed very well. It has a nice little secure mounting-clip system too, if you'd like to hang it near your waterbottle cage. Really works, and works quickly.

I'm not talking about the one with the folding T-handle (designed for MTBs), but the "road" model which pumps to about 110-120 psi pretty easily.
