First it is VERY light compared to my Mt Zefel (mtb) pump. With minimal difficulty I was able to get about 60 pounds of pressure in my tube. If you are strong or more determined you could certainly get more. Id give it a B+.

Forget it. Mimi pump is not good for road bike tire. You either stick to CO2 injection system or a decent size frame pump.

I was also wondering about it, but haven't seen anyone using one. The most important factor is the max PSI which is claimed to be over 140, which seems a bit high (my 8" Performance pump gets about 110). I'll eventually pick one up unless someone has had a major problem with it. Too many bad experiences with the CO2, I'll stick with the mini.

I have yet to use it on the open road, but have played with it at home. I easily got 100psi out of it. I tried it on a friends bike and it would not work properly. The difference is the valve stem. It has to be straight without any taper. I went from a full size frame pump, to CO2, and now this minipump. I'm sold!
Keep the rubber side down.
