Okay, how much pressure can you really get in with one of these things?

Thanks.

i've gone over 120psi, could've gone a bit further

you need to wear a mitt, or use a bit of cloth to protect your hand, otherwise it's possible to get a blister from the small handle - it's not unique in this respect, same thing can happen with other minipumps

nice long hose, i've got the one with the pen gauge, which can stick a bit, but give it a tap and it'll pop to the right pressure - that's when i found i'd gone over 120psi (also done the same with another lezyne minipump)

I have one and can get a tire up to 120 psi without much trouble. It is actually a bit of overkill for me since I ride at lower pressures, but it is quite easy to use.

repairing yet another wet road puncture during this horrific british 'summer', i decided to do it indoors in the warm and used the floor drive

stopped at 130psi* as that was already 10psi over the max for the tyre, i reckon it'll go much higher, lezyne claims 160psi i think

*pressure was checked with an sks gauge, the lezyne gauge doesn't go that high
