Hi
I want to start experimenting with different tire pressures on the road - can anyone direct me to a good [light] tire pressure gauge I can fit in my jersey?
All suggestions welcomed

Those Meiser Accugages are the only ones I've found that don't suck, they're stocked by QBP so you can find them everywhere

the 30psi version is particularly terrific, nothing else is worth a damn down low for setting MTB tire pressures

I carry a pocket sized Lezyne pump with the aftermarket pressure hose and think it's about as good as it get's for a portable combo that can accurately pump a road tire to 100psi on the side of the road. The hose fits inside the pump so you don't have to carry 2 items.

I've heard nothing but poor reviews on the digital gauges, particularly for use with Presta valves. I should note, however, that I don't have any first hand experience with the digital gauges.
