|... forgive me, but is there a reason why you don't want a full size frame pump such as a Zefal HpX (they can be sized to fit a variety of frames)?
Be the bike.

|Something that fits nicely in a suitcase? A frame pump will do nicely (my favorite is Silca Impero). Or is there some other type of pump of which I am not aware? Motorized perhaps?|

|I had been carrying a mini on my newest bike because it doesn't have a pump peg...but got a flat today near a very noisy freeway and had a hell of a time fixing it as the mini wouldn't pump enough air so that I could locate the puncture by feel before the tube deflated..no way could I hear it where I was. Got home and improvised a peg and put my old HPx on the bike, never had this problem w/ it...no more mini pumps for me.|

|Mini as any other pump regardless of size can be good or bad.
Try SKS Teleskop. 90g weight, fit in any pocket and you may pump a tyre very fast. And cost (in Germany) is under 10 Euro (guess it may cost 12-14$ in US).

|Tried a few different mini pumps and by far the best one is the Blackburn Air Stik road. Not to much effort to get 100psi.|| |
