If you worry about breaking valves then the lezyne pumps with hoses are a good choice, much less likely to damage a valve core. I know the road drive has it, but that's not exactly mini. Some of their others have the hose though too I think. In my experience lezyne stuff is always great quality as well, loads of neat design touches.

If you want to go micro, try the Airbone. It is 10cm long so you just carry it in your jersey pockets with a spare tube folded and levers. It does obviously take a bit longer to pump but it has a screw on valve so no air spills out. Whatever you get try to get a screw on as they are much more efficient than a simple clamp over and flippy switch type.

I am stronger than Mensa, Miller and Mailer, I spat out Plath and Pinter.
