This is a fabulous travel pump. I usually use CO2 when I'm riding around my home town, but I take two or three cycling trips a year and since you can't fly with CO2 and I can't count on getting any where I'm going, I use this every time I travel. It is surprisingly effective pumping up road tires to good pressure. In fact, it can easily pump the tire to considerably higher pressure than is optimal.
Since it's got a nice long hose and a little tab to put your foot on, it's easy to pump up the tire without worrying about damaging the value (which is a common problem with most frame mounted pumps).
And it's amazingly light. It's easy to through in your bag, and even if you're a weight weanie, you can easily carry this pump on your bike without feeling like you're lugging a lot of extra weight.
Love this pump. Gets plenty of air in tire so if I get a flat, I am able to comfortably finish my ride. Stylish, too. I have the black, longer model and it looks nice on my frame. I did have my stem break off and get caught in the pump like another reviewer (think pin stuck) but I still like it and will use it.
Nice finish. Well constructed. The tripod stance makes it very stable. Ring around the face useful since I have trouble reading the dial. Neat touch with the QR to release the pump head.
Only issue is that I tend to grip w my hands a little wider and have worked the end caps loose...but they push right in.
My expectations were low because I thought that one oriface wouldn't work for the two different size valves, but the head works well.
