    I have a Second Wind Road pump/CO2 inflator. It works well. It's like the one below, but longer - I think that pic is for the "mini" version. I like the bigger one as it's a better pump. The CO2 inflation is controllable by twisting the cartridge - you twist it in all the way to prime it, then back it off slghtly to let the CO2 into the tyre. Works fine and a cartridge gets a 700c x 23 tyre fully hard (oo-err missus)

    The bigger one that I have sticks a few inches out the back of a jersey pocket. I presume the mini version would pretty much fit in completely with no CO2 cylinder attached.

    Oh - and it's black carbon fibre too. Which matches my bike frame :-)

    Looks great.

    How does it perform as a stand alone pump?

    I guess the short version won't perform as well as the one you have.

    It works well. Gets the tyres plenty hard enough. No gauge, so difficult to tell exactly how much pressure you can get in there before you get too tired!

    This also looks pretty good - and Lezyne pumps are generall well thought of:

    The Lezyne one is supposedly good. It benefits from not being too overly engineered. The pump is just a standard Lezyne pump (which has a great reputation) - it's just that the flex-hose can attach to the CO2 canister instead of the pump.
