High Volume Minipump

Having been badly let down (literally) by my existing pump today, I'm in need of a new one.

I want something that prioritises high air volume over high pressure. A useful gauge would be a bonus, but isn't essential.

I like the idea of something like the Lezyne Micro Floor Drive HVG, but £35 seems like a lot of cash to splash on a mimipump.

Any other suggestions? Whjat have you got that's been doing sterling service for years and years?

    I have a Tioga Joe Blow Max 2 for home and a Lezyne Pressure Drive Mini for the back pack. Both can achieve my chosen pressure effortlessly (35psi for MTB and 80psi for BMX) and the Micro Drive is super light. Highly recommended them both, and they can be found new on eBay for under RRP.

    obviously cant answer on the longevity side of things, but gets a big 2.35 hans dampf up to pressure pretty quick!

    nice to be able to put all the pumping effort into the floor rather than wobbling about trying to make sure a valve doesnt snap!

    downside is no gauge, and no autoswitching valve head

    When you get a chance, could you let me know the dimensions of it folded down, please? Have a dedicated pump sleeve in my pack, and it would be annoying if it wouldn't fit.

    Just saw on Merlin, £28.99 for the Lezyne floor pump you like.

    I've had a Blackburn Mammoth pump since 1997 and it has never let me down yet. The latest incarnation looks like this.

    +1 for the Mammoth, my only gripe is that the protective plug means if you pull it open you can't close it without removing the plug so I drilled a small hole in mine!

    Do you have the "anyvalve" version?
    I'm slightly sceptical of things that claim to be "one size fits all", as I tend to find in reality it's a case of "one size fits badly" :wink: .

    I have the anyvalve and it does do exactly what it says on the tin, it really does work on both 'invisibly' in that you can't tell its not typed to the valve you are using.

    I have the lenzyne one and it's amazing ; it inflates high roller ii 2.4 so really quickly without a problem, and cover their cost as they last forever

    Mountain Morph is great, I'd swear it pumps up faster than my (albeit crappy) floor pump, but the hose is a bit short, and there's no gauge. Other than that it's flawless in my mind... Size (L x W x H): 35 x 5.8 x 3 cm / 13.8” x 2.3” x 1.2”
