Rule #30 // No frame-mounted pumps – so recommend me a 140psi pocket pump
Plenty will do the job but do you really want 5 pumps for each psi?
Pumps are a straightforward trade-off between amount of air shifted and amount of force needed to shift it. A mini-pump that shifts enough air to do pump a MTB tyre to 40psi will be very hard work at 100+psi. A mini-pump that’s easy to use at 100psi will take forever to fill a MTB tyre.
Track pumps have a very long stroke and are easy to put a lot of force into so you can make a pump that does both jobs well.
With a mini-pump the trade-off really matters, which is why you get different pumps for high volume/low pressure (i.e. MTB) and low volume/high pressure (i.e. road)Posted 5 years agoJunkyardMember
alright mate can you come round and measure my tyres while I’m on and off the bike?
Of course you only needed to ask 😀

What about the Airbone ZT-708 Carbonlife pump? It’s light, tiny (150mm long) and rated to 160psi.. not sure how true/attainable that is but it certainly has no problems getting road tyres to operating pressures… they do a slightly longer/bigger capacity version too.Posted 5 years ago
