It looks like an updated Silca. Nice base.

@Frankie; Tape is for handle bars!

Looks nice. I may be in the market for a new pump. What makes this one great in your opinion?

That Lezyne pump is sweet looking (but it does look like a Silca clone).

Here are my last two purchases. (Guess you can tell what season it is here.)

I should have noted that's an Ibex Merino wool cap -- the Meru -- made out of lightweight, fine wool fibers.

I just got the Lezyne mini pump. It also blow the compitition out of the water. It's quality is great. Functions even better and pumps up your tire very quickly. Weights not bad. I also got the Lezyne tire levers. Hard to get to excited about tire levers but hey, they are a good compact design. I like this company's products

Who would be the best online stockist of Lezyne?

They appear to make some really good stuff!

Why does the Lezyne blow the comp out of the water?

A few things I can sum up after my short period of use:
- the sheer air volume it pushes into the tire with each stroke.
- the method of connecting the hose to the valve (screwing in stead of flipping a lever)
- the solid base it rests on. (it doesn't topple over easily)
- the long hose
- the finishing work.

All in all the pump is better then what I have ever tried before. (I might even go so far saying that it works better then the SKS Rennkompressor.)

I hope this helped ;)

The 3/4 castelli is great as well. I really like the layup of the panels and the stitching (tri colore) gotta love it. There is some euro love in me after all ;)
