- Mini pump – your votes please!
Seeing the other thread reminded me, out on a ride today and my rucksack pump gave up like an asthmatic whiney thing (I am an asthmatic whiney thing so am allowed to say that).
Would like a decent quality pump to last a while, fit inside a camelback sized bag, and fairly quick at pumping up as I seem to frequent the puncture crowd.
Borrowed a topeak and seemed quite good, experiences of any others or models in particular? ThanksPosted 7 years ago
Does anybody fancy taking part in a scientific experiment?
This is a massive ask, as punctures are a pain in the arse, so I am expecting no responses, but hoping for a couple, just out of interest.
Deflate, then inflate a tyre, timing the inflation time. Providing the following information to the forum:
B) Tyre (size + model as tyres vary so much)
C) Gurnage scale of how much effort you put in, from 0 (calm summers day) to 10 (full on gurn, veins popping out, panting, and mildly moist)
This has the potential to be a thread killer 😆Posted 7 years agodirtbiker100Member
You already know what i’m going to recommend but i’ll say it anyway.
+1 Mountain Morph (I’ve got the turbo version which has the gauge)
had a topeak dx harpoon which was alright, looked cool but average pumping.
then had a crank brothers power alloy pump which just was crap, high volume/high pressure switch which worked but it lacked power and took ages.
mountain morph is great, bit long and foot seems a bit pathetic but speed and ease of pumping is fantastic. the gauge works well and although small is clear enough. Brilliant.
/edit motivforz – the other pumps are at the parents house but as an approximation of mine with 2.3 high rollers:Posted 7 years ago
topeak harpoon – gurnage = 7, time = 2.5 minutes
crank bros – gurnage = 9, time = 5 minutes
topeak mountain morph gurnage = 2, time = 45 seconds.superfliMember
I’m not that impressed with my Blackburn Mammoth 3, its not bad for the mtb, but when I was out on a road ride trip a while back, it couldnt cut the mustard with 100psi (well anything over 60 really). It also has a tendency to bend the presta valves.Posted 7 years ago
My mates Topeak racerocket was far better, so I expect that Mountain Morph is even better. The trick is they have a flexy hose to the inner, instead of clamping straight on. It allows you more maneuverability when pumping hard 8)
