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

sks digital air checker. significantly lighter and smaller than the topeak one, and easier to use. i have both and a couple others. this is the best.

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.
