- Trail pump
The topeak ones do work well, but fall apart after a few years. Mine lost the pivot pin for the foot tab, and subsequently I lost the foot tab. A while later the pin for the pivoting handle disappeared, so is now behind held on with a zip tie.
Good pump, but don’t expect it to last forever!

I started with a TMM gave up and went Lezyne alloy drive. The TMM foot tab sounds like a good idea but only because the pump is less efficient and needs it. The Lezyne gives more inflation and has an easier stroke so is quicker in my experience. A little fiddly on the unscrewing though(easy to take the valve core out if you’re not concentrating)
My TMM used to overheat/seize and take forever. I carried spare pump parts for it……Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber

you wont have a problem with the valve cores falling out if they are screwed in properly in the first place….
If by “properly” you mean “by a gorilla” then maybe, but yes the Lezyne will undo correctly tightened cores. It’s a problem easily avoided by buying something with a proper head tbh, the Lezyne head doesn’t have any advantages IMO and has some disadvantages so why?Posted 4 years agomk1fanMember
Not had an issue with my Lezyne and my (Stans) valves.
Really recommend my Lezyne Micro Floor Drive. Has the foot tab, inflates the tyres quickly – for a trail pump – and robust. Had mine four years.
Like the Topeak MM too – friend has one. To be honest not a lot in it between the two. I prefer the Lezyne (just) because it feels more robust.Posted 4 years ago
