Anyone find something that actually works for a super light shock pump? I got this thing:
http://www.blackburndesign.com/tools/to ... -tool.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
and its a little to impractical. there has to be something in between that and a real shock pump.

lezyne one is very slim, weighs about half of a typical shock pump with gauge at 84g listed. the lezyne gauge is an inline one built into the hose- clever. works well, i own one.

there is the microshock pump from topeak. no gauge, but itll get you home. ridiculously light at 48g. i have sneezes that weigh more.

I carry the topeak on rides, the lack of guage is a pain but it's only there for emergencies or if I want to make a tweak and then record pressures when I get home.

Mine weighs in at 46g :thumbup:

Maybe somebody can make a hose with a guage to replace the hose on the Topeak? Or maybe it would just be wise to use it as it is and just remember the position of the O-ring that indicates sag the last time you set your shock pressures right?

for those with 2013 specializeds with their new autosag, that topeak pump is perfect.
topeak also makes an inline shock gauge.

i'd sometimes put my shock pump up with it to compare gauge readings... no reason in particular.

The only reason to carry that topeak is its lighness and smallness, carrying a guage seems pointless!
