Topeak's Road Morph Pump with Gauge features an innovative design to bring the ease of use of a floor pump to something you can carry with you on any ride. A foot pad and handle unfold from the pump's shaft, allowing you to stabilize the pump against the ground rather than your hand. The long barrel fills your tires more quickly than a mini-pump.
160psi maximum capacity. Includes inline gauge and frame mounting bracket. 35 x 5.7 x 2.8 cm (13.8" x 2.2"x 1.1"). 220 grams.

I attach it to my frame with the holder provided and easily can remove it when I lock up and go inside a building. I like the gauge (although tough to read) and the air tube that gives me more flexibility for positioning. I've had 3 of these over the past 15 years. I did break one, someone stole one, and I still have one. The broken one fell off my bike and tangled in my wheel. I was in a hurry and failed to reattached it in its clamp securely with the velcro.
I bought this unit for travel in France in areas where I could not rely upon finding a bike shop. Shaft snapped at the base after the second usage. Perhaps it was a fluke but I was very disappointed.
This is the second of these I have owned - the first one was fantastic and durable - this one not so much.
The one I purchsed from WBW was my second. I've used it to pump up the tires on my road bike to 120PSI no problem and the balloon tires on my son's Harbor Freight tricycle no problem (albeit with many strokes). I am not a weight weenie so I don't care about how many more ounces it weighs than a CO2 cartridge. I really appreciate the gauge so that I don't overpressurize the tires.
I cannot count how many times I have topped off my road bike tires and it still works great. Definitely reccommend this to others.
I love this pump but alas I had to remove it from my bike as the mounting system just didn't work for me. I had two choices for mounting one I could mount pump and loose a water bottle. (poor Choice) Second choice. Mount under top bar with Toe wraps. Very unsightly, and destroyed the sleek lines of the bike. Topeak should be ashamed of themselves. How about designing a side mount that mounts like most pumps right next to the water bottle utilizing the same screws...
Rating is low due to the poor mount. Pump is great...
I've used a LOT of miniframe pumps over the years, and the Topeak Morph is clearly the best. The fact that it has a (small) foot peg and that it can sort-of be used like a floor pump means you can get high pressure without tearing off your valve stem! The guage is obvioulsy a big help. Downsides? It does weigh alot, comparatively speaking to other mini-pumps, and getting to about 80 psi is very easy, but getting from there to 100 to 110 psi is a LOT of extra pumping (but I've never found a mini pump where that isn't the case, and in fact, this is one of the few I've found that CAN get to those higher pressures at all). I've also found it to be a pretty durable pump.
I recently received it and have already had to use it a few times. Though bigger than most portable pumps, it is so much more effective than anything I've used. I can actually pump up 120 psi tires to 90 psi without a huge effort. The closest I could get with other portables was around 50. Being able to position this on the ground like a traditional pump is really helpful. Hopefully this one lasts awhile
Haven't had to use it on a flat yet, but I put it to the test and was able to pump a spare up to 120psi with no problems. The added gauge makes it easy to know when to adequate pressure has been achieved and the fact that it can be used on both prestaschrader valves is a huge plus. The build quality is also great, so I hope to get many years of use out of this hand pump.
With the fold-out foot pad, swivel hose and gauge, this pump offers all the advantages of a floor pump in a compact, easy-to-carry package. Readily achieves desired pressure with a minimum of effort, and without damaging tube stems. Pressures 100 psi require more pumping effort but are not a problem thanks to the well thought-out design. Mine has functioned reliably for the better part of a decade and continues to work flawlessly except that the gauge has finally become sticky and needs replacement. With this pump you really don't need to spend more for an expensive floor pump, and it has the added advantage of portability. In terms of reliability, durability and cost, it's an incredible value.
I have used this pump for years and they work fantastic for 2 or 3 years but then fail to provide pressure. I have replace the inner rubber O-ring (using both #12 and #13 sizes) and greased the O-ring but there must be something else that wears out. Perhaps, it is the 1 way valve at the bottom of the barrel where the hose connects. So in years past, off I went to buy another TOPEAK ROAD MORPH. I wish there were some way to rebuild this pump. My next pump will be a different brand.
The Road Morph makes a great travel pump. The short hose allows it to be used as a mini floor pump, alleviating the risk of damaging the stem like many hand pumps do. It's relatively easy to get to 100-110 psi and 120 psi is achievable. The pump is rated to 160psi, but I find it hard to believe anyone could get this much pressure out of this pump.
This pump is a little heavier than many small hand pumps, but it's also easier to use and much easier to get decent pressure for a road bike.
This is my second Topeak Morph pump. I tend to ride longer distances and prefer air in my tires to the CO2 refill cartridges ... primarily, because the CO2 seems to escape easier than normal air in the tires ... which means that after 20 miles, the cartridge filled tire has lost some pressure. It will usually get me home ... but needs a major refill before the next ride. I've not had that problem with air pumps ... including my Topeak Morph pump. I do have to use my glasses to read the gauge display ... but the pump if fast, effective, and allows me to provide firm down pressure on the handle while holding it steady with my foot. I've been very pleased with my Morph pumps!
They may not be the prettiest pump to hang on a bike, but my Road Morph has never let me down, and it becomes the go-to pump on group rides when there's a flat. It pumps well because it works like a small floor pump, so it's not so tiring to inflate larger-volume tires. The built-in gauge is accurate,too. I bought more of these for my other bikes.
I've tried several pumps and this one is the best. It's actually better than a few floor pumps. Getting 145psi after a roadside repair is not a realistic expectation, but that's what this pump can achieve. I slip it into a jersey pocket and forget it's there. After getting 6 flats in one ride I know a pump is the only way to get back home.
I bought this before a cycling trip to France last fall. Didn't want the bulk of a full sized pump. It was perfect. Don't expect it to perform like your home pump, but it's so much superior to a small framepocket pump.
I've used these pumps for many years and have one each of my 4 bikes plus one to take along when renting a bike on for a tour. They can wear out after years of use and a crash or two, which is why I bought yet another. The pump itself is very efficient and comfortable to use so that one is not exhausted by a high number of strokes before getting back to riding pressure even for skinny tires. The fold-out piece to allow using it as a floor pump is very convenient and saves the back. And the gauge is accurate and eliminates the guesswork and follow-on pinch flats. Love 'em!
I have used this pump regularly for long distance touring in remote areas. The pump has a handy gauge to assist with inflating properly on the road. It also has a fold-out foot brace to make it easier to push with both hands at higher pressures. It's quite easy to switch between Presta and Shraeder valves. I've never experienced a failure with this pump, but after about 2 years the pumping action feels coarser as if it's losing lubrication. I usually get a new one after 2 years, and save the older one for my commuting bike or pass on to a new cyclist, but I've not actually experienced a failure.
