Hi Guys

Looking for a mini pump to go on a bottle cage mount for use in both MTB races and on group rides with the road bike (might be supplemented with a CO2 cartridge for special events)

I was looking at the Topeak DX range which are dual action and will go to 120psi (fine for the roadie) but I have bad experiences with dual action pumps and reliability. Other offerings appear to be either big volume, low pressure MTB pumps or skinny high pressure road ones. Does anyone else know of any good ones in between?

Cheers all

    I just got the topeak race rocket that takes both sorts of valve, looks solid enough .

    Yeah, it's not the valves it's the volume of the pump...

    Looking closer i think you maybe right,it is aimed more for road tyres.

    Maybe you ought to consider a mountain morph , mini track pump that takes both valves.I run a road morph for commuting and it gets my road tryes up to 90 + psi in under a minute and i have pumped up a mtb tyre quickly as well when i stopped to help some one else out .
    Just a note .. you have to fiddle with the rubber valve thing inside it to get it to do one or thr other it is not a one fits all , 30 secs max to flip it between types.

    Lezyne Pressure Drive

    Plenty of pressure for the road bike and easy to use out on the trail.

    I pop a bit of insulation tape around the gap between the handle & body when mtb'ing to stop the mud getting in.
    However the pump can be stripped easily and spares are available.

    Okay i assumed your MTB`s would have schaeder valves(like a car tyre) and the road bikes would have presta valves .

    Good luck finding what you want.
