I carry both a Lezyne Road Drive and co2 with me in my jersey. I only carry one cartridge with me and the pump as backup and for when I help others. It's not like I use a lot of cartridges ( 3 in the past year perhaps), so I am not going to feel guilty about the environmental impact, it is a drop in the ocean.

The pump works great but it can take a lot time/effort and there are times when the co2 is just a better solution for getting you back on the road efficiently

Just bought and tried the Quicker Pro on both threaded and non-threaded presta valve stems on my road tires (700 x 23).

Pros: This is my first mini pump, but I was surprised how powerful it is; it takes less than a minute to get the pressure up to my typical riding pressure/firmness (thumb test -- I normally run about 95-100 psi); it seals easily and well to both threaded and smooth valve stems; good grip, so it can be used without bending/breaking the valve core; handle is big enough to use without fear of pinching my palm; fits easily in pocket -- 180 mm long; works with both presta and schraeder -- only takes about 30 seconds to switch back and forth; cost only $24 on Amazon; can be attached firmly to frame if you choose to do so (but the mounting clip fits a limited range of tube diameters).

Cons: Sorta porky (178 g on my scale); this one has the internal pressure gauge, the gauge is pretty useless; first time I used it it actually sealed so well that I pulled the nut off of the end of the valve core when I removed the pump from the valve stem (solved by being a little more careful about removing when done).

I might look for a lighter alternative some day, but if you don't mind the weight, this is a keeper.

Ironic this came up: just got stuck today with my Lezyme pulling my valve core. I repumped 4 times, pulled valve core 4 times. Finally figured out how to put it in "slip mode" (as opposed to screw mode). It worked great.

Screwing is better if your core is tight. But if not, slip mode saves the day.

I asked about mini pumps recently and haven't reported back in my own thread so I feel obliged to give a follow up. :oops:

I went for a Lezyne road drive cfh. It has a flexible hose which doubles as a CO² head. It can be used with presta and schrader valves and has a maximum inflation pressure of 11 bar.
So far I have pumped one flat on the road and it's brilliant so far. On my trainer wheels I run approximatly 6 bar and the Lezyne was a blessing.
Since I had an collision on the bike a couple months ago I just couldn't reach desired pressures with my other pump because it felt like my shoulder was gonna blow apart. With the Lezyne it was virtually effortless.

I'll have to see how well it works with my tubs and TT wheels.

Does anyone have good suggestions? I'm sick of CO2 and hand pumps are all terrible. What's the best pump you can recommend? Weight is a factor but ease of use, maximum pressure a weak guy can get with it, stability, and durability should be factors too.

I have CAAD7 and CAAD9 bikes. I use the Blackburn frame pump. Carbon and aluminum. It comes with a Velcro strap to hold it under the toptube.

My wife carries a Lezyne mini high-pressure hand pump on her CAAD 9 frame. I know you're looking more for full-length frame pumps but you might consider these. Like Lezyne floor pumps, IMO the hand pump is cleverly designed and very well made. Works great. Very durable and still fairly light and inconspicuous. No need for the longer/larger frame size pump...

Thanks for the suggestions.

Part of the reason for the frame pump is simply to get another piece of gear out of my pockets. Especially with wet and cold weather upon us, that space is better used for clothing options as the weather can change by quite a bit on a long base ride.

i second the topeak brand, however I use the morph, not necessarily the lightest or smallest but in my experience does the job:

The Lezyne Road Drive pump is small and works very well. I can get tires up to normal pressure even with my skinny climber's arms, though it takes a while.
They come with well made clips which go under a bottle cage.
