The blow-out was bad enough.
For shop convenience gone mobile, you can't beat the Lezyne Micro Floor Drive Pump. The guys at Lazyne may not have succeeded in making it fun to get flat tires, but they did manage to take a lot of the pain out of the inevitable flat with this innovative portable high-volume pump.
The Micro Floor Drive incorporates a fold-out stainless steel foot peg to give you the convenience of a floor pump on the trail or side of the road. The comfortable CNC-machined T-handle is a world away from those uncomfortable shaft-handles on most micro pumps. The 24in hose makes it easy to get to valve stems, either Presta or Shrader, and a Speed Chuck is included.
The Lezyne Micro Floor Drive Pump is available in a standard (HV) version or a version with an in-line pressure gauge (HVG). Both versions include a Composite Matrix frame pump mount.

The first time you use this pump, you will wonder how you put up with any other mini pump you've used previously. Just by holding this pump in your hand you realize that it's design is well thought out and the quality is unlike any other pump you've wasted your money on before. Think of the nicest floor pump you've used and shrink it down into a nice package that fits conveniently in a hydration pack.
This pump is about 12 inches long and has a 24in hose with a chuck that works with both schrader and presta valves. It isn't the lightest pump out there, but is not noticeable in a hydration pack. For the punch that it packs, it is well worth any weight penalty woes you may have. This pump saves tons of time pumping up MTB tires and getting you rolling again quickly by using the attached foot peg and allowing a better position for pumping. The option for a pressure guage may be handy for those really picky about their pressure, but certainly is not necessary.
A frame mount is included with this pump, but feel it may be a bit bulky to fit on a frame. I highly recommend this pump, you will not be disappointed!
I am beyond impressed with this pump. The quality of craftmanship is the best I've ever seen in a pump. It is easy to pump with - the handle does not dig into your hands (though admittedly I haven't pumped without wearing gloves). It is efficient at getting air into my tire, and I think this is mostly due to the larger size and fitting being so secure that you don't need to be gentle with the pump (ABS/Flex Hose = AWESOME and every pump should have it). There is just never any undesirable leakage. It's easy to get a ballpark idea of how much pressure you've put in by watching the integrated gauge, though it doesn't agree with my digital gauge that I actually use for setting air pressures, so I only use it as a guide. It's super-easy to switch between a secure Presta and a secure Schrader connection. With the little foot stand it's also easy to pump hard and fast and not waste energy holding both ends of the pump.
I have no doubt that this pump will last me for years to come as I do not see any desire to switch from this since it's really light, relatively small, maximally efficient, easy to use... really, all the qualities that you would want a pump to have. If it's too big for you, you are probably already using CO2. This is my second Lezyne (I have an HP for my road bike that can get my tires over 100 PSI with ease), and this HV version for my MTB works wonders. Stop "trying out" other pumps. Just stop it.
If you are looking for a mini pump to take with you during rides, stop looking and just get this! It's sooooo good!
I love this pump. The quality is great and its really easy to switch from schrader to presta. The one gripe I have about it is the button to bleed out the air is poorly placed. They put it right in the knurling that you use when you thread the pump onto the valve. Its really tough to not bleed out a couple psi when you are removing the pump from the valve stem.
I've always used the basic pumps and was so impressed with this one. This is a must have for any mountain biker. We all know how bad it sucks when you get a flat, and it sucks just as bad getting your tire up to the pressure you want with a basic pump. with this little guy, in less than a minute your 29" 2.25+ size tire is up to at least 40 psi, and your arms aren't worn out when you're done!
Can this be threaded on to a shock? I was thinking specifically like a Fox RP23.
It probably can be threaded on, but its not going to work. This pump maxes out at 90psi. I run my shock at 160psi, so not even close. Also, this doesn't have a gauge, which you need for use on a shock. The Topeak Shock and Roll is a dual use pump. I too hate carrying two pumps. I wish Lezyne would make a dual use pump for mtb use.
