Folding/mini track pump

Does anyone have a folding/mini track pump that they could recommend that would fit in a rucksack?

I had two punctures within five minutes of each other on Monday and found that with my mini-pump I couldn't inflate the tyre beyond 50psi so I had to limp to the nearest Evans to borrow their track pump. (Thanks to the roadie who stopped to ask if I had everything that I needed.)

    A frame pump is what you want.

  • I know it may sound silly but the best pump I have found is my shock pump, small, will inflate anything and on ebay new.

    Also bardged as Raleigh, it is small, screws on so easy in the cold and so easy to use.

  • I have a Topeak mini morph which works but the seal has started to degrade.
    Its made to be easily replaceable but my local bike shops stock the pumps but not the spares though SJSCycles look to have what I need.

    If I was buying a pump again I would look at Edinburgh Bicycle Cooperative own brand pumps.
    They do one v. similar to the Road Morph.
    I have one of their track pumps and its excellent for the money.
  • I have the Topeak road morph but can't recommend - incredibly difficult to get and keep a good seal on the valve. Little pressure guage unreadable.

    I carry a Road Morphe, but the Mini Morphe is better.

  • thanks for the replies. I'll try the topeak mini morph, it certainly can't be any worse than what I've already got.

  • Ask to try it out in the shop before you buy it.

    Lezyne road drive is a great mini pump - will top a genuine 100psi without too much effort.

    it's a hard life if you don't weaken.
