..so many on Chain Reaction it's impossible to choose.

Needs to be able to go in my jersey pockets, ideally want gauge though not essential. Want to get as high a PSI as poss in a portable. Would consider mini track pump if not too much of a pain to carry or mount.

Cheers

    Topeak Road Morph is easy to use, will easily top 100psi and has a gauge, but is just a bit too long for a jersey pocket. I've sacrificed a bottle cage to mount mine on the seat tube. You do get the option to cable tie the mounting bracket to the top tube instead

    I had the same problem, after advice from the good people of the forum I went for this;

    Not used it in anger yet, but seems like a well made, quality piece of kit.

    I carry my Road Morph in my jersey pocket (didn't want it covered in censored on winter rides), fits fine although I usually stuff the pocket it's in with a shower-proof jacket to pad it out. Also a couple of jerseys have really shallow pockets or side opening ones so you need to be careful when choosing what you're wearing :p Can get 120psi from it but over 100psi requires a fair bit of effort.

    Lezyne do a similar mini-track pump design but it looks as big and probably heavier (although it does look nicer).

    I use a Blackburn Airstick. Will get to 100psi (just) and fits in a bracket next to my bottle cage. In winter when punctures are more likely I use a Blackburn frame pump. It gets to 100psi easily and fits in front of the seat tube. I only use one bottle cage on the winter bike.

    Lezyne road drive ... small, excellent, and as good as you will get for the weight.
