    I seem to remember this, or a similar thread some time ago but as is always the case I wasn't
    interested then! But now after trying to fix a puncture a few days ago I have decided that my
    compact pump has to go cos. it's bloody useless! So can you either reccomend a good compact pump
    that will acheive 100psi or thereabouts to carry on my bike or point me to the relavent thread.

    Thanks SW

  2. Steve, Topeak Road Morph gets my vote. A bit bigger than a compact pump, but 100 pounds is no
    problem. The built in gauge is very handy and pretty accurate. A hose with a fitting gives it the
    ability to be used like a floor pump I keep mine stuffed in the space in the seatback of my Giro.
    There was a thread on Bentrideronline a couple of months back. It shows up around here every 6
    months or so. Denny in Sayre Pa "Bent but not Broken" www.recumbentstuff.com

    Mine too. I have one mounted horizontally behind the seat on my Giro on a piece of flat bar stock
    aluminum attached to the bottom W/B bolts.

    On my Lightning, it is strapped under the front of the seat.

    I use a Sigma Sport Lambda Jet w. analog manometer.

  5. I have this : http://www.zefal.com/anglais/produits/26.html

    It took a bit getting used to, but it does the job and has brackets fitting the bottle holder. Many
    strokes needed to reach 100+ psi (small volume pump)

    Get one of those CO2 inflators. IMHO worth every penny for roadside inflation.

    Until you have more flats than inflators....

    BTW, can't be taken on a plane either.

    That does look interesting. I was thinking about it for my wife, who has a hell of a time getting up
    to 120 psi with a hand pump, even the floor versions. Only 9 oz weight (255 g) too. Assuming it
    works, the biggest downside would seem to be the bulk, as the thing sure isn't going to fit along
    your top tube!
