Pump - Topeak Master Blaster Mini Morph
I'll get straight to it. This is the best mini pump I have ever experienced.
After working 10 years around bicycles, in sales and as a mechanic I am always suspicious of mini pumps, they tend to break, not seal and take ages to pump. But the Topeak is an exception, it works, seems indestructible, fills faster than other mini-pumps and has some great features.
Firstly it is single action only (pumps on the push stroke only) which is a bonus as every twin stroke pump I've seen fails on one stroke, generally the push. Also it has a flexible hose to the valve, so you can put it on, then brace the pump body somewhere nice while you work up a sweat filling your big motorbike tyre. And the handle feels good to use.
But most importantly, over the last year my one has filled probably over 200 motorbike tyres (group of 3-4 on the road for 7 months with many tyre changes and some puncture problems), and been used on many pushbikes too, and still can get my road tyres up to 100psi.
I don't know what else I can say... I'm sitting here with a foolish grin on my face even considering how well it has worked. If you need a small pump for your travels take a look at one of these.
PS, Google the full name for photos of it. Retail price is about AUD 60-70.
