I'm looking for a new mini-pump: it must be small enough to fit in a jersey pocket but good enough to be worth carrying in the first place. What do you use and do you recommend it?

Cheers,
Milk Maid

    This what you want. I have had one for years and can get up to 100psi easily. Totally weightless and reliable.

    my favourite...

    fits in the middle pocket ok, flip out foot for really easy pumping, and a proper hose

    the simple gauge is a bit sticky, you have to tap it to get the correct reading, otherwise it's easy to go way over the right pressure

    Anything from lezeyne with a hose, anything else is a waste of time,Some speak highly of the Top Peak pocket rocket, I admit it looks good and it's really small, the only issue is it takes about 300 strokes to get to 60psi. My carbon one has been in a drawer in the garage since the first time I used it.

    Saves any bent valves as well

    i got a giant one for a tenner thats bloody good, far better than my previous toppeak one that i lost. it has a handle that turns out into a proper handle which it hink makes it far easier to pump
