Best mini road pump????

by trikeman   July 19, 2012  

Hi All,
I am looking for a good mini 'get me home' pump with secure bike mount, not too keen on sticking it in my pocket - I value what kindneys I have left. Anyone recommend one, black if possible to blend into the background.
Not so much for use at home, emergency p*******e repairs only.
Really like to hear people's opinions and recommendations.

The highest rated pump we've tested is the Lezyne Road Drive Ally Mini Pump, and it's black for £33.

The other mini pump to score highly of late is also from Lezyne, the Tech Drive HP for £25.

I'll second the road drive. Great quality pump, and works well on the rare occasion I have need for it (I seem to be very lucky avoiding visits from the p******e fairy!)

Grunt, puff, pant and groan goes the old man - but he gets there in the end. ;o)

Should've gone for the airbone. It's got three benefits:

Its 99mm long
It comes in THOUSANDS of anodised colours
It has a funny name

I use a Topeak Race Rocket HP pump. Great pump, lightweight and quite cheap, its about £24.00 from Evans at the mo.

There are no stupid questions, just stupid people.
